I've owned a few fox bodies, SN95's, New Edge and just a 09 GT/CS. I am looking at getting a 2011 and newer budget build prefer automatic. What are the some issues or things to look for. The latest one I liked had 142k miles and an auto trans. I wanted something that is quick stock for now and maybe upgrage/mod later.

The 11-12’s has some issues with the back two cylinders chucking pistons, I’m not sure if it was a cooling issue I know some places had cooling mods for them, other than that the drivetrain is pretty solid, I had a 14 just intake cat delete and tune put me at a 12.4 on the stock tires, auto is definitely the way to go for reliability

Well in that case I’ll pass on the high mileage one.
Was yours manual or automatic?

All in what you want; Auto (6R80) is stronger but the Manual (MT82) is more fun on the streets.

11 - 14 is a solid car

Some like the 15 - 17 better.

I had an 11 GT Auto, fun car. I currently have a 17 GT manual, also a fun car. Both have different personalities and temperaments when driving.
