Since the dealer didn't have any 'GTs in stock[at the time] I drove a '11 auto V6,and frankly the V6 made my mind up on trading my Cobalt SS in on a GT.While the Cobalt[not stock] was faster than the auto,I could see a manual '11 being pretty close from a roll,and probably quicker from a stop due to traction problems for the Cobalt.

I have a 6MT, I have never noticed any hesitation. But I don't know how the automatics respond.

I currently have a 2008 V6 and it does not have that problem (old 4.0 liter engine). I have a friend with a Pontiac G6 GTP (about 260 hp) and it really takes off, unlike the 2011 V6 Mustang (with 305 hp). In a 0 to 60 with my watch (not a stop watch), it appeared to be about 6.5 seconds (almost 1.5 seconds slower than Motor Trend’s test).

None of the reviews talk about this problem. Has anyone else driven a 2011 V6? What have you noticed? I am hoping this is an isolated case to this one car as we were planning on trading our 2008 convertible on a 2011 convertible.

they say if you get a tuner w/ tunes loaded, say from american muscle should resolve most wth the automatic.

I have a 2011 V6 Auto with a DiabloSports tune and 3:73. The shifts are crisp and fast enough to chirp the tires in the first three gears and pull 0 - 60 times of 4.8 - 5.3, depending if I can hook.

Like others have said, get a tune..and have a blast.

I own a pony pkg with 3:31s and a manual 6sp. No hesitation at all. My only issue is it takes too long for the revs to come back down in first and second to make shifting comfortable without whiplash. I wonder if a K&N or headers would solve this otherwise, I never had a better car!

The `11 v6`s have a very limited amount of power available at low rpm`s. They are not quick and snappy at low speed when in normal drive. The response to throttle inputs seems slow as tranny has to change gears just to get you moving. Around town these just don`t have the light, sporty feel we might like, especially the verts with 2.73 gears.

Other than this, I have no response or lag troubles. I have a tune and soon 3.55 gears. Tune helped some, gear will help more.
