What I Drive: 2011 Sangria Red SEL

New To the Site

Hello everyone. I just joined today and I am looking forward to learning new things about the cars I just purchased. I have a 2011 SEL that I bought for my wife about 3 weeks ago. Right now my daily driver is a 2009 Mustang GT. I am trading it in for a 2011 SEL identical to my wife's but a different color. Hers is Gray, mine will be Sangria Red. I should have it next week sometime. I will post pictures of both when I have a chance. I am replacing the Mustang only because I travel about 65 miles a day, and I need to lower my gas bills. I have to use premium gas in the Stang also. The other reason is my income situation has changed and I can get $200 a month off my payment by trading the Mustang for the 2011 Focus. My wife came out of a Lincoln MKZ, so this is a big change for both of us. But so far, I love the car. For a small car it has big car features and drives very nice. Again...I hope to learn more about it from this site.

Posted via FF Mobile Congrats, its a good car and you should have no problem with mpgs. I was going to say, why not trade in for a 2012, youll probably feel like your driving inside a lincoln again as far as quality of materials go, but Im assuming your getting a great deal on the 2011. Did you ask the dealer about a 2012 at all, or possibly wait on the trade till the 2012s are on lots? Its worth it imo.

Btw welcome to FF!

Sal, How you do'n. Just me. I joined the site a couple weeks ago. A little bit younger crowd on here then what we are use to over on TBN. Thought you were thinking about a 2012 but I'm sure you can pick up a 2011 for much less $$ then the 012.

Posted via FF Mobile Theres plenty of older members here too, to be honest the ages are widely spread...just you cant always judge age by a persons post either on here LOL.

DkrKnight614, Understand. On the other Bird site it's pretty much an older age because of the price of the car from new but we are now getting younger members because of people getting these Birds for almost 1/2 the price used compared to when they were new. They went for $40,000+ new and used are now in the $18,000 to $28,000 range.

Hi Gobird, good to see a familiar face...or name.
I really wanted the 2012, but being I'm a little upside down on the Mustang, the deal on the 2011 was just too good to pass up. I'm getting everything I wanted in it, but the "ford touch" would have been nice too. Maybe I'll keep this a couple of years and trade it in for a newer one down the road. I really hope to get another Mustang someday, so I can have it before I retire.
