Can't say much about the reliability because I've only run 370 miles on it, but I am quite impressed with the 2011 Mustang V6 Premium. The car as a whole isn't spectacular but it impresses on all fronts - performance, interior look and overall quality, monstrous sound system with decent SYNC program- while still managing to be affordable. It is hard to find a manual so I was stuck with the 6-speed automatic; it loves clinging to lower rpm's for mileage but when a solid lead foot is applied, this baby flies. The electronic power steering is excellent and this car hugs corners and sticks to the road much better than it's 3,500 lb frame lets on. During my first week I averaged just 14.8 mpg city (was having a bit of fun) but with a bit of practice I've gotten 17-19 mpg consistently in the city since, which is very satisfactory for this 300+hp beast V6. Highway mileage is almost as good as advertised. This car is much more livable as a daily driver than the Camaro; head room is excellent in the front and leg room is ample front and back. If you are 5'10'' and above you will have to slouch a bit in the back but should still be able to fit in rather comfortably. Interior quality is solid but a step behind the excellent look. The Mustang tops the Camaro in both facets.

Great daily driver! Vary quite ride if you want it to be and can easily catapult itself in to the highway. Also provides vary high cornering predictablity and confidence. There is a bit of body roll but thats ussaly only at around 70mph on 90degree three lane turns using the optimal cornering driving line. Extreamly smooth ride at 80mph while only revving just under 2000 rpm at 6th gear. Capable of crusing at 100mph smoothly with mild cross winds also only revving at around 2700-2800rpm at 6th gear. You may expreiance a little bit of panel vibration at around 120 mph. A little nose float at around 140mph if its windy. Red line at 6750rpm. With 18inch wheels that are also a bit wider than the standard 17inch, you can have the limiter legaly raised to 155mph on the V6 opposed to the 115mph with the 17inch eco tires. about a 2,000$ upgread including wheels and tires. My only quam is the stiff suspentions and the live rear axel. If the roads you normally drive on are well maintianed the 2011 mustang is as smooth as a ride can get, wonder over to sub par roads however and you will know it vary quickly. This car will have you looking forward to your commute to and from work every day if you enjoy the act of driving!! All around a great everyday driving car, provided you are single and dont like to caddy large groups of people around.

Buy American Muscle

So far I have put 2200 miles on my Ford Mustang and everything is running great. Mine is a V6 premium, performance package, manual transmission. Bottom line is I bought this car for 23k$. The invoice was 29k$. If you negotiate really hard you can get it for that price, too. This is a lot of car for the money. All the interior bells and whistles like electric leather seats and Sync voice activated everything. Also has a great Shaker Audio stereo and speakers. The interior styling is nice - ambient light that you can control the color of and brushed aluminum trim. Some people say this car doesn't look as good outside as a Camaro. I think they are wrong. This car is more stylish than the Camaro. If you want to look like you are a 16 year old jock then buy a Camaro. If you are a grown up with taste buy a Mustang. The performance is great, too. The 305 HP engine gets up plenty quick. It is really enjoyable to drive. The gas mileage on mine has been around 22 around the town and as high as 26 on the highway. Of course I drive fast and like to shift at higher RPMs than I probably could. The peromance package is well worth the money. Mostly for the rims, Pirelli tires, and rear shift dif. This is basically the GT suspension on a v6. I can't overstate how much better these rims are than the stock or even than the premium rims. Check them out. They are black 19s and they look sweet. Other than that - buy a Ford because they didn't take bail out money and they are Union made in America. Forget about Chevy and Government Motors, Inc. Don't spend your hard earned money to provide big bonuses for Japanese fat cats at Infiniti or Lexus. Let the Germans eat their Sauerkraut BMW's with their overpriced parts and service. Buy this American Muscle Car with more tradition that either the Chevy or the Dodge. -A Great American

Ridiculously Good Value

After inspecting every make and model car I could find, I kept coming back to the Ford and trying to find the catch. Something had to be wrong, cheap, poorly made for this kind of price. The interior has hand stitched leather seats and looks high end. The back seat even has special hook-ups for a baby seat, key to me closing this deal with my wife. I look under the hood and find an engine with 305 horsepower? I'm now getting the Roush Dub package with special front end, rims, etc. So you basically have a Roush built sportscar that gets 31 MPG and is a limited edition car for the same price as a Prius, Mini Cooper, Camaro, and less than a Jeep. The interior is far superior to the Camaro or Challenger and it's body finishes are much nicer. A friend of mine is a Honda Fleet manager and he can't understand how Ford is giving so much for the price. A muscle car that has function and style, and I believe a car that will prove to be a good investment. Prices have to go up from here.

I got lucky and found a low mileage Mustang GT that I bought. It is by far my favorite car I've owned. Yes, the interior isn't Lincoln Class, but I wasn't buying the car for it's interior, which isn't that bad anyway. I have the premium model with brembo brakes, and it is incredible. Keep in mind I replaced a 98 Camaro Z28, so the technological advances since then are huge. The Stang has advance trac that you can turn off if you want to light up the rubber. Even with it on, sometimes is spins them a little when I really lay into the gas. Needless to say it is a great feature. The engine is amazing. 412 HP and get this...it gets the same gas mileage as the 2008 mazdaspeed3 I sold which has a 4 cyl turbo. YES, this powerful V8 gets the same gas mileage as a 4 cylinder Mazda Speed! Unbelievable! This car is 10 times what that mazda was, and feels so much better to sit in. I'd even say I feel safer in the Mustang than that Mazda. I'm not sure if I'll drive it in the winter, I may get a beater, but I hear with top of the line winter tires, and the advancetrac on, the Mustang will do very good in snow. Personally, I think the fit, feel, looks and performance make this car as great as it is. And it's not bad as a daily driver, I don't feel like I'm down on the ground like in my old camaro. My 5 year old rides in the carseat in the back just fine. A seat buckle extender is a must for him to buckle himself, but thats about it, and the Mustang really can be a part time family car. (My wife has a SUV so we use that for a lot of other family activities, I'm just saying the Stang isn't some small super-crampped econo box.) One other thing, it actually has a trunk you can use, and a pretty big one at that> I am very pleased with this car, and would highly recommend if you're in the market for this type of vehicle. You will not be dissapointed.

Just got a 2011 Mustang V6, base model the other day. For the money I paid, it is a FANTASTIC car. I haven't driven mine hard yet because I'm breaking it in, but the ones I test drove really demonstrated how great Ford quality is now. The interior is vastly improved over all previous models (I grew up with Mustangs-my father owned four), the overall aesthetic appeal is very high in my opinion, and wow the performance is unbelievable for a V6. It really gets up and goes. So far we're getting about 25 mpg with mixed driving. It's very quiet on the road, and you have to be careful because it's really easy to get it up to 80 and not be aware of it!

2011 V6 Premium-Pony Pkg (automatic)

by from Northern VA on April 17, 2013

305hp! I rented an '05 Mustang conv for 5 day trip and found it to be comfortable and incredible improvement over previous generation which I had test driven. BUT, my 2011, purchased used at 38k miles, still drove like new, and far surpassed the quality of the '05. I am easy on cars and got 35, YES 35 mpg, on a road trip to PA going 55mph on hwy. This is my only, daily driver, car and I AVERAGE 28mpg on normal daily commute (mostly hwy). Better than my Taurus I traded in on it. Driving this car just makes you feel 'cool'. The way the bulbuous hood is shaped, the rumble of the engine, the power - ready anytime - the comfort, the gas mileage, and the feel of the leather steering wheel and seats - lowered down and tilted back. It is great to cruise down the hwy in. Tires are EXPENSIVE about $250 ea. Insurance not bad, synthetic oil change reasonable $75 every 5-7k miles. Not good in snow, but I HIGHLY recommend this car to anyone interested in one of the coolest cars to drive. (and I've driven Vette's and Camaros, manual sporty cars, etc...) Beautiful! Lots of people notice this car (if that's important to you). Great price - incredible value. I even outran a Formula Firebird. NO complaints. Solid car. No rattles at 60,000 miles, on it now. Rated as one of the cars that will easily go 200k miles.

2011 Ford Mustang V6 Premire....Fell in love with this car when it was a 64 1/2, on a billboard in Mobile Al, It's perfect, I'm 4'10", and the first question I asked is the seat electric!....and it fits like a glove, the only problem is that I work 5 minutes away from my home...regardless of other individual's reqards of the cup holder being to close to the shifter, that's minor......and no there is no room in the back seat, who cares, this isn't for transporting anything but my bag of useable junk......I know the next vehicle will be another Mustang, My husband has his eye on the Mustang Cobra.....

I paid 44.000 Usd (taxes included) to own my Mustang GT, however no car in Chile have this Price/Value combination. My last car was a Subaru WRX 2009 and I was looking renew this car for the same model Subaru WRX 2011, however the price is aroud 40.000 USD (taxes included). If you compare this models (Driver experience, Power, Look, interior, general performance, etc), you will see that you can't compare, because Mustang GT is SO MUCH BETTER than Impreza WRX. I Still can't believe this price/value combination, is Excellent. Great Driver experience, Look, Comfort, Speed, Acceleration......... BUY ONE NOW!!!!
