"I recently purchased the base model coupe with 21000 miles on it. It's the first Mustang I ever even considered purchasing due to the 3.7 liter V6 Ford with the 6 speed automatic transmission Ford dropped into it in 2011. With only 10 fewer horsepower than the previous years GT, it's an engineering marvel. It's really quick off the line and it keeps accelerating with absolutely no drop off until it's electronically limited 113 MPH. This Mustang isn't just fast though, the handling is superb and it feels very planted to the road. It lacks some of the features you would expect of a car that sold for $23,000 when it was new. However, the seats are more comfortable than some plush sedans I've driven, and the interior feels very well put together. Driving at sea level, I get better than 30 MPG on the highway, and with a light foot I get better than 20 in the city. I love this car, and I don't care if there are a million of them on the road because this car just feels special and is an unmatched value. If you have a chance to snatch a gently used 2011 or newer up then do it."

"Through all the incarnations of this classic "pony" car, I feel that this latest change in 2010 is a keeper. The improvements in interior materials is immediately noticeable. The retro dash and instrument cluster is very cool. The reverse "Camaro" style hood scoop is dynamic. Plenty of control and horses, and this is the 6 banger! Turns like it is on rails. The only negatives: If you're over 6" tall, getting in and out of the capsule is somewhat challenging. Also, lateral support in the buckets could be improved significantly."

Love this car! First GT ever!

"I bought this car 2 weeks ago and drove 100 miles to get it. I have had a 02,03, and 10 mustang but never a GT. I love the gas mileage better on the V6 but I'm willing to pay more for that rumble. I average about 20 miles per gallon right now."

"Black with ghost writing on side . Interior can set ambient color to your choice if color. Handles very well and drives nice. It's my understanding they did not make many of this particular model California special."
