My husband and I are looking at convertibles. The Mustang seems to get the best reviews for the 4 seaters. We are not tire squealers, so with that said we are leaning toward the V6/ automatic Mustang. This will NOT be a daily driver.
In our area, there is a 2009 Mustang premium convertible - V6, Automatic, torch red with black top, gray leather interior, Power driver seat, My color, aluminum dash & trim, 45th Anniversary fender badges.
Also there is a 2010 Mustang premium convertible - V6, Automatic, torch red with Stone top, stone leather interior, Power driver seat, SYNC, My color, aluminum dash & trim.
Both cars have around 40,000 miles.
Which would you choose? Are there any reliability issues with either of these model years? Would the 2009 retro look/ 45th Anniversary/ low number of 2009's produced be worth more in the years to come?

I like the body of the 09 more, but the interior of the 2010 is better in my opinion. The 2010's are much quieter inside too.. 05-09's didn't have much sound dampening. Between the two, I would go with the 2010 unless you got an unbeatable price on the 09.
Thank you everyone for your advice. I wondered if certain convertible top colors we better than others. I really wanted to stay away from black leather interior with a convertible, because I'm sure you could fry eggs on it in the sun. :-) I do like the idea of SYNC on the 2010, but maybe in a convertible you wouldn't be able to make a hands free phone call and be able to hear it?
