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.
They refunded my money, but I really wanted the license plate holder. I will look elsewhere I guess.

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.

@  G3012 : (26 October 2017 - 06:54 PM)

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?

Something to ponder about .....

 

 

Ford is real specific on this and working for a dealer ..... I'd rather pay a little more and know if there is a major screw up I know I am covered because a Ford store DID it

 

You do it yourself or go to jiffy lube ...... a whole other story

I was thinking of buying just the oil to take to the dealer so to save a few bucks. I would never have Jiffy or 10 minute lube ever touch my GT350...

Agreed I would never take my GT350 to any quick lube shop. I would rather do it myself with motor craft products.
Even the dealer can ding or scratch you ride.

thats the only problem is having the dealer work on the car. People are still people and even with me being a manager at the store I work at you would think

all would be fine on my car.

 

The car that I traded in on my GT350 was a 07 GT500. I was getting tires on the car and I try to keep a eye on the car when its in our shop so I walk over to the tech that

is putting the tires on ( directional of course) and the tech is putting them on backwards ...... shit happens so you do have to be aware and make the dealer aware that your

looking over there back.

 

Think the other thing to do is to ask for a Sr tech to work on the car .....

It is and just let them know that you have had previous nice rides damaged at the hands of a dealer. Most stores know how anal a GT350 owner is and wont let a kid changing tires work on them

 

Most mind you ...... not all !

There is no doubt you will make sure the car has no scratches or dirt in the seat when done. I wish all techs took the pride we do but when you do there job day in and day out

it does become routine as with most jobs and their corresponding tasks.

 

However that said, for a warranty claim it is real important to consider having the dealership do the oil changes for the documentation

 

 

Ford is clamping down on this type of stuff

I have a 2017. I have read that some of the 2017's have the traditional metal filter and some have the new style cartridge filter. Are there any vin codes that determine this or do you have to get under the car remove cover for visual?
