Default newer 5.0 mustang

Hey all, anybody have some seat time in one. Looking at a 14 model. Just wanna hear some pros/cons esp on engine. Want to get a 4 seater convertible and the one I'm looking at is decently priced.

Honestly, go for the 2015. It has fully independent rear suspension.

And you are better off with the solid axle! I wish my 04 cobra had a solid axle, the independent rear is always the weak link in these modern sports cars!

Drove one back a couple years ago from Terra Haute, IN to Bloomington, IL. 5.0L/6-speed triple black convertible. No complaints on the drivetrain.

Engines are fine, the 6 speed manuals were/are junk then...may wanna do some research on that if you're looking to get a stick...automatics are fine.

messed with a couple of them. stickys, cold air, exhaust, and tune and they will pack a factory 19 in the air. very impressive cars. the 15s have been breaking halfshafts with sticky tires, the aftermarket has already taken care of it though.

Tough car to beat for the $ if you don't mind being associated with a bunch of flat-bill cap wearin' dudes.
