You probably not going to get alot of help on that car .... this site is mostly about the 15-18 GT350 models .... you need to go to site that specializes in those years of cars

I have 1800 miles on 2017 GT350. When I was tracking it the dipstick kept coming out of the filler tube and enough oil to make a sizable cloud of smoke. Ford can't find anything wrong. Any ideas?

@  Fantiniastic : (31 December 2017 - 01:10 PM)

@Hell on Wheels I have just over 1000 miles on mine and I experience the same thing - don't think it's abnormal. I've read its an expected behavior of this engin

@  smokum : (30 December 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Try calling the hot line at FRPP .....

@  Hell on Wheels : (28 December 2017 - 09:58 PM)

My 2017 GT350 has 4000 miles on it. At about 2600 it started ticking upon acceleration and deceleration. There is a sweet spot in between. I've been told this is piston slap. Problem is it doesn't do it only when cold and doesn't go away when warmed up. This sound makes me cringe every time I drive the car. This sound can't be normal but Ford can't diagnose it. Help?

@  Fantiniastic : (24 December 2017 - 11:18 AM)

I've been driving around for the first 2 weeks of owning this car in normal mode with the exhaust, steering and shocks in sport. Had no idea how aggressive the ECU mapping was in SPORT. Holy cow!

@  smokum : (20 December 2017 - 01:00 PM)

mine isnt that bad .... no where near it ..... but once i reved to high and didnt have the clutch fully engage and got that smell .... it was my fault .. it did go away after a day ... i know better .. anyway go to your Ford store .... the clutch is covered for 12 mths or 12000 miles for defects ..... you might get lucky and get it replaced under warranty

@  Hitman1 : (19 December 2017 - 03:15 PM)

My 2017 GT 350 with just over 3000 miles has a burnt clutch/ burnt rubber smell coming from motor area and when A/C is turned on the cockpit is filled with the burnt smell. Regardless if I've been driving it or just sitting in the garage. Horrible smell emanating from engine bay... Any ideas? FYI - The clutch seems fine, no issues and has been driven correctly and easy in the first 3000 miles.

@  smokum : (14 December 2017 - 02:35 PM)

Rprout, my car consumes a quart about every 1200 miles give or take. I drive it aggresively on the streets using lots of high RPMS ... according to ford this is within normal limits of the design

@  Rprout : (13 December 2017 - 07:39 PM)

My 2017 GT 350 consumed 1qt in 920 miles - spirited street driving only - I see at least one person here with oil consumption issues. Anyone else? Remedies?

@  Foon : (08 December 2017 - 01:46 PM)

I changed dead battery in 2008 Shelby, now my instrument cluster is not working correctly. No fuel indication , no oil pressure indication,no blinkers or 4 ways(indication). All lights work but don't indicate. Did I blow a fuse, does the computer need reset??

@  smokum : (07 December 2017 - 03:30 PM)

Congrats tipmartinez ..... incredible car isnt it

I bought a used 2017 with 2600 miles for $56,000 minus trade.  Sticker was about $60,200.  He would deal a little on my trade in but wouldn't go below the $56k.  Prior owner traded in on an R model.

I have been watching prices nationally and regionally since late spring 2017.  Smokum is correct.  As soon as Ford announced they were going to built a quantity of 2018 GT350's and hold the GT500 release as a 2019 model, the prices have been coming down.   Regions with real winter approaching (I'm from Florida and we look forward to our winters!) saw the steepest decline.   I have seen 2017 GT 350's with the 900A package advertised with in the mid-west for $ 3000-$4000 off MSRP.   (When you dig into the details, most have $ 999 dealer packs or such - so factor that and the travel expenses in!)

 

I worked a deal in central Florida for $ 2000 under MSRP for a 2017 with an MSRP of $ 60.895.   The same dealership had a 2018 R coming in the same week and had a deal written for $ 15,000 over MSRP.   I wouldn't even consider that unless I was trying to flip the car.

I paid 57,7 for mine, MSRP $60,895. Made them figure all sales tax into what they gave me for my trade in, so out the door at $30k exactly.

When it comes to the price you pay for a GT350, a lot has to do with color and options that you want plus location.

 

If you find "the" car with everything you want relatively close by your more inclined to pay a tad more for it than to

travel a 1000 miles and figure away to get the car home

Couldn't agree more, I wanted the convenience pkg for the seats(they were the same ones that were in my 16 GT/CS) but, was having a difficult time finding one within 1000 miles of me. I "settled" if you will...for the Recaros. However, this car is an absolute blast to drive, and the seats are not terrible. I just kept telling myself for the price it should have power seats at least. First world problems.....

Seems Sticker is becoming more common. It will be curious to see what the 18's bring especially considering the production run by Ford is almost cut in half

Bought mine brand new in late October for $1.2k under sticker ($60,420 MSRP) way out in Alabama, good guys out there. According to the window sticker, the car was ordered in February and delivered in March, and it hadn't moved since. I saw that it was sitting and knew I had to jump on it.  Electronics Package, Shadow Black, I love her!! :D

 

IN MY PERSONAL HUNT/PURCHASE EXPERIENCE:

 

- Florida wanted at least a few thousand if not 5k over sticker.  I told them thanks but no thanks, and months later they are still sending me emails about the same Shelbys! Guess they're having trouble selling them?

 

- Georgia was willing to deal but you had to make compromises (different color, racing stripes, agree to their terrible gap insurance, etc).

 

- Virginia dealers were willing to sell at sticker, possibly a few hundred under sticker.

 

- NJ/NY dealers are stubborn morons. Last I checked there were a few GT350s that had been sitting for over 3 months but the dealers wouldn't budge. One even told me they would prefer to "auction it off" before dropping the price that much ("that much" being sticker or slightly under sticker). So now whenever an NJ dealership calls I just text the salesmen pics of my new Shelby. Conversation stopper! :D

 

- Leather seats are tough to find on the East Coast unless you order them. Took me about 1000 miles to adjust to the Recaros but I am okay with them.

That is the what one should look for .... a car thats been sitting for a long time where as the dealer is motivated to sell it

 

Good find first of all and great deal ... congratulations !!!

I have a 2018 coming. The only car my dealer is getting in '18. Buying at $2000 below MSRP. Still leaves them some profit and a great deal for me. I understand '18 production will be quite low. Getting Kona blue with convenience package and white stripe.

Bought my 2016 GT350 Tech Pack with 10k miles on it for 52k. Yeah, I definitely stole it. Rich dude who bought it before me took real good care of it.
