I've had my eye on Mustangs for years and now finally bought my dream car, and not disappointed. It exceeds every expectation. LOVE THIS CAR! It's got enough umph but also enough gas mileage (averaging 24). Just the right balance. Best thing about this car is that it's super good-looking and just downright FUN FUN FUN to drive! You can't go wrong. It's not perfect in every way but still head-over-heals in love with this car! Oh, and did I mention that I love this car?
Wow ! Driving a 2014 V6 Convertible around Central Florida is FUN ! There are compromises - V6 for regular gas, automatic tranny more practical when I4 is a parking lot. BUT - this car hugs the road, loves curves, accelerates & brakes smoothly. I enjoy the handling as much as my wife appreciates the smooth ride. Still learning to use the SYNC, but I'm getting there.
I have always been a Mustang fan, and this 2014 model is as close to perfect for me as I could get. I purchased this convertible with 32,000 miles on it and have since put about 20,000 miles on it. It is very difficult for me to let it stand still in the garage. I love driving this car so much. I have driven a pick up, an economy car, luxury car and German sports car, and the Mustang is the best road handling of the bunch. The acceleration is incredible, the braking is strong, and the fuel economy averages about 23-24 in town. Driving with the top down brings you much closer to nature especially living in a place like Central Florida. It can get super hot outside, but it is difficult or me to not want to put the top down. This car definitely draws the looks of passers by and the admiration of others who have not realized their dream of Mustang ownership. So far, I have not had any mechanical issues to attend to. I purchased a Ford Factory Extended Warranty and so far it has gone unused.
This is an update: I unfortunately had to sell my 2017. Became too hard to get out of. I loved it in every other way, but was hurting my joints, the bucket seat is so deep and low. I got a 2017 Honda CRV Touring new (#1 class rating), and I love it. It's not a convertible (but has a sunroof). All in all, I really like it and my Aunt and Uncle liked it so well, for the same reasons, they traded in their Lincoln Town Car and bought a new CRV, the same as mine, top of the line. Apparently they liked it!!! Haha! PS - I got $24K for my 7 month old Mustang, paid $42K for it. Terrible depreciation - 43%. KBB by owner price = $27K, which still stinks. Be forewarned: they allow NOTHING for all those extra whistles and bells. I expect the Honda to really hold value. Still, was worth the taking the beating to feel and walk better. Original reviews follow: I had a white convertible, medium stone interior since I live at a warm beach. This is an update, since I sold it to an 83 year old gentleman who is having the time of his life with it. 50K miles with only one A/C issue so far. I retired from work in Alaska, so I wanted all the fresh air and sunshine I could get to make up for all the time spent indoors up in the land of the great outdoors (like most everyone I knew). This car fills the bill. Road trips are minimal in Alaska, but after 30 years of travel commuting I am staying home except for a trip to Atlanta last summer. However, I plan to go to Seattle to see my son next Spring, and maybe more trips after that. For that and other reasons I bought a brand new 2017 Mustang convertible. Mainly, this is due to all the new accident avoidance technology. Decided on the Ecoboost and I couldn't be happier. I got the Ecoboost without the performance package (for a smoother ride), but all electronics for $42K. Straight line acceleration above usable for merging isn't most important at my age, but I did take it up smoothly to the electronic-limited 121 mph once. Gets up to 32 mpg on highway. It is a wonderful car. Even my BMW friends are jealous. The open top is the main thing, and the GT noise would block out the birds singing. But, if someone doesn't have the money to buy a new one, I recommend the 2014 highly. Lots of fun for the money. It got me to the beach for my every morning walk with the early rays of sun on the water, and along the waterfront under the stars at night. My older friend is still loving it and he brags to whoever will listen.
