Good deal on a 13 2ss rs convertible

Looking at a 13 yellow vert 2ss/rs with 2300 miles ,NPP, Hurst, and rally stripes on it for $36500. I'm trading my 02 mustang gt vert with 39000 on it. They will give me $8600 for trade. So financing about $28000 with 1.9 rate. They said this is the best deal they can give, so no more negotiating. Does this sound to be a decent deal?

You are getting hosed by about 4 grand. Retail on it should be around 32-33 and trade in is around 29. Plenty of room to move.

Nada shows 32000 average trade with retail of 36200 and they don't even mention the NPP as a option. They wanted 39900 from the start.

I don't know where the other posters are getting their information but 36,000 is about average for this car from a dealer if it is in good condition. Exceptional condition would be up close to 39,000. Depending on the car's condition you may or may not be getting a good deal.

The car still looks new. It only has 2300 miles on it. Plus it still has 26 months of full factory warranty left.

my question would be why did previous owner get rid of it to begin with?? with so few miles, i would want a history and ask prev. owner. real low mileage used cars sometimes mean trouble, sometimes they dont. over the weekend, i saw a used 2011 2SS vert for sale that had 6,100 miles on it. given the history of problems with the 11 and 12s, that one would be obvious why owner maybe unloaded. if this vert OP checks out, the price seems reasonable for a 2SS vert. with the options. good luck!

looks like an awesome deal to me, especially if you compare it to the original purchase prise of a 'vert 2SS/RS. Mine is basically the same thing sans the extra two cylinders and it started out at a price of $42k, they also had a 2SS/RS 'vert at the same lot (leftover 2013) with a window sticker of $47.5k.....so, Ya! that is an excellent deal, you are going to play hell trying to talk them down any lower, I would have jumped on that deal if I didn't get mine first.

They showed me the car fax and it looks like it was a corporate car for 5 months. Other then that, it was a clean car fax. No issues other the key recall.

take your mustang to car max and see what they will pay. If its the same money sell your to car max the car and just use $8k for the down payment. Always better to buy a car with no trade cause they usual pay low wholesale book.

Tried that and they only offered 6000, which is where the dealer started at for trade in.

If you were just buying the car straight out I would say you could get another 2K off that price. Your trade complicates it and I have no idea what is a good trade number to you.

With all that said after you do the deal what will the 'vert be worth in 15-18 months, will you be upside down or have equity? If you plan to keep the 'vert a long time then whatever deal is acceptable to you should be good enough.

My trade in from black book was only 6200, so getting 8600 I thought was good. Plus they dropped the car from 39900 to 36500. But winter is coming fast, so they knew they needed to sell or they could of sat on the car all winter. And like the previous poster said, here in NH winters are long and these toys get parked.

This Camaro has Nav also, so it looks like this was a $47000+ car.


So true. My Mustang GT we averaged about 4500 miles a year.

I don't think thats too bad of a price, I paid 29 for a '11 2SS/RS ragtop with 11,255 miles on it this February. Didn't have a trade, just bought it outright. Windowsticker in the glovebox shows $43,475 on the bottom line. Its exactly the car we wanted, every option we'd planned to order. 7 months later, I'm still very happy with the deal.

I say its about 30 they paid for it because I had a 2011 2ss/rs triple black l99 that was way high on the MSRP, I paid 40 for it new, traded it off for 33 a year later then it was sold by the dealer for 30...... it had 5k on it and only small rock dent on the hood and was excellent condition. In certain markets convertibles are not that highly regarded say in a wet weather state...... I am sure they padded a little and made profit off the sale and I ditched immediately the extended warranty on the new car a 2ss/rs coupe for 40 with dual mode, premium wheels, heritage grill, sunroof and clear bra with CRT paint. I got the car I wanted and paid payments basically about for a year on the other car before trade in. They marketed it at 33 at first yet it was winter and I watched their price go down over the months...1 grand per month until it sold....winter hurts convertible sales, my advice buy a vert on sale at the end of the year when the new model is out and during winter weather..... Good luck

That is a very nice upgrade. Forget about whether you could have done $2000 better or not. You got it. Now enjoy it and welcome to the convertible club.
