    I saw a new 2018 GT350 for sale and the price was the same as used 2018 models. Going to check it out. I think it would be better buying new and getting a warranty. Its white with blue stripes and has Recardo seats. Any suggestions as to what I should be asking and looking for? thanks

    Are those the Ricky Recardo seats?

    Regardless, a new one is a new one and can't really go wrong if it is discounted. If you don't buy it tell us where it is...

    You didn't mention pricing. There are over 700 new 2019's available in the USA right now. The low price seems to be around $58K. Example: https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/detail/776139776/overview/

    So, new is a great thing, but that car is three model years old. Hopefully they've got the price down in the low $50's? The nice part is the 3 year/36K bumper-to-bumper doesn't start ticking until the first time it's sold - so you've got that as a benefit.

    Some of the late 2018's were already getting the 2019 motor. Pop the driver's side coil cover and take a pic of the engine tag. A KA 555 GT350R motor would be a huge selling point.

    Can you tell by the VIN number if the motor is the newer model? The price is $55,000.00

    Wouldn’t a 19 and up be a better safe purchase?

    At $55K you're about $3K away from a new 2019. Lot's of nice things happened between 2018 and 2019.
    Totally agree if they stick at $55K. It would have to be low $50's for me to even consider it.
    No, not that I know of. The most reliable way is to look under the coil cover and check out the tag.

    Your right I am better off buying a 2019 next April. I am only looking at 5k more. This give me time on what to do my 2013 Mustang GT, should I trade it or sell it?

    Trade it and take advantage of the tax savings and headache of selling it
