For those stuck with choosing Mustang or Camaro it all depends on what you want. I have had both a 2010 Camaro V6 and now the 2012 Mustang V6 MCA. The Camaro is a Great Cruiser and honestly I believe it looks better. But the Mustang by far is more fun, you feel more connected to the steering and the suspension where the Camaro felt very bland. The Camaro is a bigger car and is great for long drives. I still love the Camaro but if you looking for a "driver's car. The Mustang is the better choice.

I've had my V6 Premium since May 6 and am really enjoying it. The V6 model can no longer be considered a secretary's car. That engine is wicked! The car is far more comfortable on long trips than my 1998, 2003 and 2006 Crown Victorias. The interior is of excellent quality. The true dual exhaust is a much needed enhancement. Like the ad states, "Drive one"!

Senior Muscle Car

by from Suburb of Baltimore, MD on April 30, 2012

Yes, my 2012 Mustang bought on 3/3/12 is a "senior muscle car" because I am 70 and my great muscle car is only a V-6, yet it has plenty of umfff.

Mustang Boss 302

by from GA on March 12, 2013

Absolutely the best performance bang for the buck on the market. Truly world class sports performance and can be used as an every day driver too.

Can't beleive the car has a 305 Horsepower V-6 that still gets over 20 miles per Gallon around town and 30 on the highway. Great car...looks good...fast...economical. Bought it from Ferman Dodge/New Port Richey. They negotiated with me until we made a Deal...None of this NO HAGGLE PRICING like some other Dealers I went to.

I Finally Bought a Mustang

I promised my teenage daughter she could have my car if she got a job. She did, and it was time for me to keep my promise. Since I was looking for a car in late August-- the end of the model year-- there were many deals advertising zero percent interest for 60 months, or no payment for 3 months, or rebates and other incentives. I figured I'd buy a sedan that gets good mileage. I checked out the Civic, Sonata, Malibu, and Altima. All great cars in the same price range and various incentives. I couldn't make a decision, feeling like there was no "perfect" car for me. If I bought one of the above, I'm sure I would have questioned if I should have bought one of the others. After feeling exhausted weighing different offers from different dealers, I decided to go with my heart. I told my daughter for years my next car would be a Mustang. I thought that was just more of a dream than reality. The next day I went on Cars.com and found a 2012 Mustang Convertable. I knew that was the car. I went to the dealer and drove home in it that afternoon. Just like the TV commercial, no drama. The price was right and car exactly as advertised. It has a very smooth ride, great handling on curves. It's a V6, so it's not a muscle car, but is quick and nimble. I'm in my early 50s and not interested in racing or going 120 mph. I find it very comfortable to drive. I find it difficult to see when backing up. The rag top creates a large blind spot, so you have to rely on the side mirrors. There's a back seat, but in name only. I can't imagine anyone being able to fit with virtually no leg room. The trunk seems surprisingly spacious. The dashboard is simple and doesn't overhelm you with gadgets or technology. That's a plus for me. I love the car! And I'm happy that I kept a promise to myself. I finally bought a Mustang.

I purchased a new Mustang GT convertable 3 months ago and have had a blast driving the car every since. Ford has done an excellent job in engineering this car the performance, handling and ride are all excellent. I am a former BMW owner and this car is everything my prior BMW's were for a lot less money. Keep up the good work.

Having owned many performance cars over the years, i had always wanted a mustang. This is definitely the best of the breed. A daily driver that is docile and easy to drive just cruising but with a bark and a bite with the mash of the accelerator. Superb handling, great power, excellent steering, great gear box with perfect gear ratios, comfortable seats. In easy urban driving achieving 20 mpg - who would have thought with 444 hp. This is absolutely a dream car for an enthusiast. Draw backs - cheap floor mats, basic radio deserves better speakers. The exhaust note will put a grin on your face every time. A dream car and a bargain compared with more expensive domestic and foreign offerings. Ford truly did a great job on this one. Drove a regular 5.0. it is amazing that two cars from the same family can be so different. Had to shop and shop to get a fair deal as too many dealers wanted over sticker. Purchased out of my area to get the deal I wanted.

I have owned mustangs over the years,,the style ,perf of the 11 version I enjoy very much,,the new V6 is a very nice balance if power and design,,avoid the 11 stick shift as for some reason they were made in china and ford has been paying warranty claims since,,the recent announcement of a "restyle' in the future seems a mistake assuring these cars as classics

We rented a new Mustang V6 for ten days in the fall of 2011 and drove about 1000 miles in southern Utah. The car was such a gem--perfect for touring through red rock canyon country--that we decided to buy one. We got a very good deal on the exact car we wanted: Kona blue Premium w/ pony package and 6 speed manual transmission. The auto magazine reviews are right on the mark when they sing the praises of this car! The styling, while not the "classic retro" 2005-09 Bullit car, is clean and simple, and the drive train is superb--a short throw gear shift mated to a powerful (305 hp) engine that provides excellent acceleration and remarkable fuel economy, about 28 mpg in real world driving that is mostly on the open road. The seats are comfortable for long distance driving--I recently did 750 miles in one day. The ride is firm, giving good road feedback, but not harsh, and the steering is light and accurate (zero wandering). I now have about 6500 miles on the car, and there is nothing I would change. It has adequate luggage space for long trips (use soft bags, not hardbacks), a fabulous heater so that you can start early on a frosty morning with the top down (and windows up), and the stereo (w/ single CD and Sirius capability) is a joy--bluegrass plays especially well! Because we live in a snowy climate, this convertible is a summer car. It comes with stability control and ABS, so would likely be fine with four snow tires in winter. But it will live in the barn from December-April, and we're counting on driving it in good weather for 20 years--it's that much fun! Ford got the '64-66 Mustang convertible right, especially with a 289 V8 and four speed. I'd say that this one is even better.
