I placed an order and paid for the License plate holder that is listed on this site on the 15th & to date I have not gotten any shipping info. Also sent an email with no response. Any suggestions? It is through registry market place.

Unless you already have, I would post this under racing ..... but I think you will be fine. I am sure your not the first GT350 to run that track.

I have had my Metallic GT350 for a little over a year now, and love to drive it. The mountains of Northern CA (Napa, Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino counties) are a drivers dream. I also went to Utah for the 2 day school that was way too much fun. I now am planning on some track days out here in the west, but must meet their sound limits. Sonoma and Thunderhill have a max of 103db, while Laguna Seca are as low as 94 some days. How loud is this monster? Has anyone had any issues on track days for noise? Has anyone been to Sonoma or Thunderhill with their GT350 and had any issues? Thanks for the help,

@  smokum : (24 October 2017 - 03:24 PM)

Any current production car its hard to tell if it will be a collectible or not. I honestly don't see that with the GT350. I dont think it will affect value since it was a warrantied item. Its unfortunate that this is happening but you are getting a new engine which is the right thing to do with Ford. I don't think Ford will replace the car. I suggest if you want a better sample of opinion to start a thread in the appropriate section

@  tedstefaniw : (24 October 2017 - 10:17 AM)

Hey members, would like some Opinions. I purchased my 2016 GT350 late march this year from Levittown Ford NY. I was getting some serious engine knocking noise when starting the car. Had it in the dealer three times, first in July to get it checked, they couldn't diagnose. after keeping the car for days. 2 weeks ago car lost almost all the oil, due to the Oil filter backing out! Most likely due to the excessive engine vibration(rods/lifters?). Destroyed my driveway and my Jobs parking lot. Finally this last time they told me I need a new long block! No problem thay will order new engine. My gripe is I want a new car, I didn't pay over sticker for the best Mustang ever built to get a engine replacement after 6 months. Not to mention , if I ever want to sell the car what this would do to it's resell value. Opinions please?

there is a You Tube comparison of the GT350 and the Roush's various upgrades. No disrespect to a Roush but the two cars dont even come close

My car was built March 2nd and there was no word on the car and here we are on March 31. I called the SVT hotline and they said my car hasn't shipped yet and there's no information as to why. They thought it was odd so they recommended I contact my dealer and ask him to contact the regional rep to find out what the hold up is. So I did.

The regional rep told my dealer that there was something wrong with a door and they're "doing a repair." That's all my dealer was told by the regional rep. I was like "what does that mean?" And my dealer said he didn't know, could be paint work or could be a piece of interior trim.

Here's my car concern-if the door was dented, scraped, dinged up at the factory and they're repairing it I won't know the extent of the damage but if I ever sell the car the prospective buyer will find evidence of damage repair during a PPI and think I was in an accident! How do I find out what they're repairing? If it's interior trim I don't care. But if they're doing paint work I do care. What would you do if you found out the repair involves paint work?

How do any of us find out if repairs were done to our cars, while sitting around waiting to be shipped, or for whatever reason?   Sounds like a non issue to me.

Umm, how do any of us find out if repairs were done to our cars? Well, in my case they told me they're repairing the car. That's how I found out. For $60K I'd like to not have a car that's in need of damage repair. Moreover, I'd like to know what exactly they're repairing.

That's the sad thing of how they do it. When I ordered my 2005 GTO new I knew it would take 6 months to arrive from Australia. When it did you could see in direct sun light where they had spot painted and clear coated over a couple imperfections on the rear fascia. Also you could feel over spray on the quarter panels and taillights. GM would never disclose that it had a repair. Just said they were sorry. They cleaned off the over spray and replaced the tail lights. Ain't even right!!

I believe the plant will advise the selling dealer what damage occured and how it happened.

 

There are several protocals on what a dealer has to disclose and based on the type of damage and what was replaced and the total dollar amount.

 

Its a tricky situation but under a certain theshold the dealer doesnt need to disclose everything.

Thanks. This is very odd to me. How could there not be full disclosure from the dealer? If the factory tells the dealer everything about what happened, how it was repaired, and what it cost...how could it be allowed for the dealer to keep that information from me? Or better yet, why would that be allowed?

I know the car was damaged (they said so, that's why it hasn't been delivered). I know they're repairing it. Ok, the jig is up. They surely know I will not be satisfied with anything less than full disclosure.

Is there any way to work through all the middle men and find out what happened?

I just received my car. Well, I'm happy to report if they did anything to a door I can't find it. My dealer says it probably was something to do with a panel, something small. I fine tooth combed the hell out of it and I can't find anything! Haha. So I'm happy. Car is great. Dealer was great too.

if your really concerned it about, go to a paint shop and see if they have a paint meter ..... this indicates the thickness of the paint and can show irregularities

of the paint and thickness

 

Most dealers when you trade a car in will put a paint meter on it to see if its been repainted

I was thinking about that...but actually the front splitter is my main concern. Don't want that bugger flying off. I nothing but love the car. Ford may have created the closest mechanical object to having a living soul that's possible. I would tell anyone--you need one of these. Period.

review the splitter install by ford and and have another ford inspect the splitter for all bolts and more importantly the snap tabs are fully engaged into the bumper

 

Get comfortable with the install so you know inside and out than get the inspection and ask to be present when on the lift

Thanks to this forum, I was able to ask the dealer about this before picking it up last Saturday and also get down on all 4's to inspect it...happily they did it right.  I looked at an Oxford White model at a different dealer that was not done correctly, and told them so.  Hopefully they'll correct it (they said they were going to check out the video) so the new owner doesn't have it shred at 100+.  Anyway Don, thanks for posting this.

Having had my splitter come off at speed .... no problem.

 

The screws .... attaching them wasnt that big of a deal on the second splitter, but getting the lock tabs on your splitter to fully engage into the bumper was the tricky part

 

Glad it helped
