This might not go over well

I'm considering replacing the Hyundai with a new Daily Driver. The Hyundai is a great car, just absolutely boring. Boring to death.

Ford is looking to move the 2010 Mustang GT right now since the 2011 is such a huge improvement and only about $1000 more.

They have $2500 rebate or 72 months 0 % financing and they must have some manufacturer to dealer money. I say that because a dealer close to me is offering $2000 off on all Mustang GT's and 0% or $4500 off on all Mustangs. In addition Ford sent me a $750 off certificate in addition to all incentives and dealer discounts.

This dealer has a 1 option base Mustang GT with the 3.73 rear differential as the only option. Included in that $495 option is larger brakes with 2 piston calipers and the 3.73 gears. The 29,400 sticker is $26,650 with discounts and 0% financing for 72 months. Additionally the company I work for has a buy American campaign and will give me $500 for buying a new American car.

If it goes down I'll post a pic by Monday.

The only other real candidate is a Cobalt SS and they are just a bit too much of a teenagers car for me.

Cheapest Camaro SS I can find is mid 30's, more than I want to spend and the Challenger is pricey and lacking in performance unless I get the SRT and then it's too much money. I'm not a fan of the Lancer Raliart or the WRX. The Hyundai Genesis Coupe is an interesting option but I like the Mustang GT over it and the Mustang faster and cheaper.

I'd like to buy new so a GTO isn't an option. If used were an option there are a ton of C5's in the low 20's with under 25,000 miles, but I want new for my Daily Driver.

Shouldn't you be putting money away for health care?

Hey man. If you want a Mustang I don't see anything wrong with that. You've weighed your options and that seems to be the best one for ya. Some I say, go get it and never return to our forum again... TRAITOR!!

The cheapest option is get a Mustang II. You can get those in a Cobra too.

Yeah thats the one! Gota Have It factor for shure. That a disco car for shure. I don't know man you can give those new GT500's a run for their money with a wooping 137hp!

Cheap performance goes to the Mustang. A modded Cobalt SS will torque steer, a Camaro is too expensive to buy and mod. Rallyarts and WRX's are just as expensive as a Camaro SS.

I'd go with the Mustang GT for certain. I've owned four of them and liked them all. My daily drivers are a KIA and an Explorer (boat puller) but you've got me thinking GT.
