Too high. For a couple grand more, you can get in a low-mile '11GT. That's only a few more bucks a month on your payment, if that is an issue.
The '10 still has the 3V 4.6, you are looking at mid 13s in stock form. Serious power requires a SC.

+1

The 2010 GT is simply a 4.6L running the FRPP/Bullitt tune for 15 more CRANK HP over the stock '05-'09 4.6L. With a good CAI & custom tune, it's identical RWHP to the 05 thru 09 with the same CAI & tune.

And $22k is about $4k-$6k too high. Leftover base model '13 GT's with the 5.0 can be had for mid to upper $20k's.

Looks like an OK deal to me. Low miles and it's a "Premium" which means you get leather and all the niceties. For most people it's not only about speed. And, it's no slouch in the speed department either. I think the 5-speed transmission is a better gearbox than the 6-speed as well. At any rate, the price is not out of line in my area. The area in which you live will have a big effect on price.

Test drive that car. Then go test drive a 5.0 (2011+). I am a betting man, and my bet is that after driving the 5.0 you won't even think about buying a 4.6L. Not that they are a bad car, but they are nothing compared to the new coyote. Plus, that price is high. Some food for thought: I bought my 2012 GT Premium Convertible with 29,500 miles for $26K.

The price for the 2010 seems a bit high, at least for the area I live in. I've come across several in the high teens. Good luck!

This sounds like a pretty clean car! These guys have all made some great points but it all comes down to what you're after. The 2010 GT does still have a 3V motor (which is a great motor) it just won't make us much power as the 2011+ GT's with the 5.0 under the hood! It's pretty easy to find a low mileage 2011+ in the mid-high 20's without a problem, if this is in your price range it's definitely a great option.

The 2010 3V GT's are pretty sound. There's no real "things to look for" on this car as far as issues go!

I hope this helps! Good luck on your search.

-Dan

Thanks everyone, i am still going to go look at it and drive it since I havent driven a new stang. I still have my 1995 but would imagine the new ones will be much nicer to cruse around in. I dont need another car this was a bank repo so i thought I might get lucky and get a deal I couldnt pass up. I will probably end up waiting another year and get a 5.0, but the bank doesnt know anything about this car so it may have a supercharger for all I know. the guy in charge said there is something laying in here with SCT on it, i dont know what it is...lol so It wont hurt to look..
