That is a good deal, so I'd say buy when you're ready man. You never know what tomorrow will bring. The guys pre-ordering their 2010s had no idea what was in store, lol.

Hey ssimaniac, what part of the country do you live in? Here in Atlanta, the best I've been able to get off of a GT Premium with only 3.73 as an option is around $2400. Plus the $1000 rebate, that's $3400. What you are saying with an MSRP of $38900 minus a sales price of $33889 is $5011 off of sticker (including the 1k factory rebate). You said the drive of price is $35,500 so $1611 for Tax, Tag, Title. Does your sale price include the dealer fee which is usually about $500 - $750? Also, you said it's only using the $1k rebate, no other rebates? I can get an Xplan price with my company which will give me $1900 off sticker and changes the dealer fee from $750 to $75. But add the $1k rebate and that's still just $3650 in savings, not as good as your $5011. I'd like to know where I can get a deal like that. You should jump on it.

What's premium care and why does it cost $770?

I looked it up. Extended warranty.

Some food for thought. You will be paying for a warranty that won't take effect for at least 36 months. The powertrain is warranted for 5/60 and federal emissions law forces manufacturers to warrant all emissions related components for 84 months. That includes sensors, the car computer, cats, etc. The factory warranty also covers towing for 5/60. Premium care has a $100 dollar deductible every time you bring the car in while in the premium care timeframe.

I'm not trying to be all negative on you, just give you something to think about before you sign. Dealers and finance really push extended warranties because of the high profit margin for them.

True, although on the other hand, if you run into a serious issue with your car, that $770 will seem like nothing. There can be some massively expensive problems that come along with cars and if the owner intends on holding onto the car for a long period of time, then I'd say get it.

I'm personally picking up a warranty too, premium care, because I'd like to hold onto this mustang for quite some time.

ssimaniac, where did you get that offer? That is a great deal. I'm just waiting for the deals to get better before I buy one. If I could find a deal like that I'd probably do it.
