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?

@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

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

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?

Anyone want to sell me their factory car cover?

@  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

Hello,

               My name is Dan Maldonado, and I'm really interested in this model, as nothing really swayed from GM stuff until now! I actually wrote a letter to an owner, but they didn't get back to me. That's how badly I want to check one out. I've owned quite a few special GM cars so I'm not new to high performance vehicles, but after all the professional reviews for this car, I'm hooked on this vehicle. I'm looking to buy one of these once they depreciate in about 10 years so, but was interested in getting up close and personal with one if someone in the NJ area was interested in granting me such a visit. Dealerships won't let me near them because I'm not buying one in the near future. Please let me know if anyone would be interested in granting an in depth look at one of your awesome cars. PM if you're willing to do that. Thank you so much for your time and attention. Here's to hoping!

 

Sincerely,

Dan Maldonado

I'm clear across the country, so sorry...  I can't help with a visit.  However - why wait 10 years?  Life is short and if you're that interested, then go for it now!  In ten years we may be limited to electric cars.  Or (shudder) driverless cars. In ten years you'll be ten years older and will have missed ten years of enjoying a phenomenal car.

Krogen,

                 While I do appreciate your view I have good reasons for not having it now. I have a family of four, bills, and just bought the wife a new car. That's why it's not in the cards right now. I'm still doing a 120 mile a day commute in a 15 year old car, that has 392,000 miles on it. I want the car to depreciate to a more affordable level, but was just wanting to check one out for the reasons mentioned above. Thanks so much, hopefully someone closer would be willing to help me out.

 

Sincerely,

Dan Maldonado

Hey,

             So the owner did get back to me, and I'm going to check out the car tomorrow! Really excited! It's  2016 white body, blue stripes! The owner seems really nice, and I can't wait! It looks like the one below:
