Well, after much debate, I bought a 2014 Mustang GT. There were many factors going into the decision, but the main ones were: I really like the current body style, I can get a Mustang with all the options I want at a good price, new Mustangs with the options I want will cost more than I want to spend, and I'm somewhat leary of buying the first year of a new model (although that worked out ok with the Jeep Liberty I bought). I know the new Mustang will handle better, but I'm very familiar and comfortable with a solid rear axle. All my cars up until grad school had solid axles...they can be quite fun. The new Mustang will havea nicer interior, but I'm fine with the current interior. The interior upgrade was not enough to sway my decision. Overall, I'm happy with my decision. We'll see what happens when I start seeing new Mustangs out on the road!
