Hi, I'm interested in getting a VT but don't know what year I should get. I know the 12-13 are bad from my quick research, so I was wondering what I should know before getting one. I found some 16, and 17s for sale that seem nice, but I don't know much about these cars. Could someone help me out with some pros and cons?

I have a 13, almost 100,000 miles and I love it. Only had minor issues that were easily fixed on my own. What exactly are you looking to know? Is this for a daily or are you looking for something you can upgrade?

Yeah, im looking for a daily. And I wanna know what years have what issues so I can avoid them. Also wondering what maintenance is like, what tends to break, is the aftermarket good because I'm for sure gonna do stuff to it.

These are the best ones: 15 auto, 15+ manual, 19+ DCT.

Lowest miles and least mods the better when buying.

There will be an annual veloster event at tail of the dragon end of September. RVD7 is this years event. Should be over 100 velosters there.

They are not bad but If you have a heavy foot and like to race, then you have to get stronger connecting rods. After that is a cool drive.
