Default 2010

I am new to the forum but not to mustangs...had a 95 gt convertible Black and Tan 5 spd...bought new and regretably sold in 07. Am looking at a 2010 gt rag and am wondering what to look for (inspection) before pulling the trigger. What are the "issues" to watch for on a '10?

Honestly, I would check the condition of the top such as any tears on the inside, open areas that may leak and so on. Make sure the top opens and closes smoothly and latches as it should. Since its a 2010, I'm sure the top is in good condition. As for the rest of the car, a basic inspection should work.

Why not try for an 2011? Almost 100 more horsies is pretty significant.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for the welcome... I would go for the '11, believe me... the coyote V8 just looks like it's going to tear the world apart... I know its got 100 hp over the 2010, but looking at the market, the 11's are a bit too pricey still. and, my insurance man told me to keep it around 300hp. I have a teenager in the house.
