  1. Ford Dealers are Terrible

    I agree with everything you said 100% ! Even down to the 400Z. Having a Miata presently I have really come to appreciate the cornering ability of a lighter car (2300 lb). The power is not there like the Coyote however you can wind out the first three gears in town without being in jail. As I...
  2. Ford Dealers are Terrible

    Bummer about the P and the dealer. I guess it goes to show that any car and any dealer can be a pita. Mine was a 2016 981GTS and did not have one issue but I do agree about the cost of even minor issues. My 981 will be my last P car due the cost IF something does happen and the routine...
  3. Ford Dealers are Terrible

    skinnysauras, I agree Porsche is expensive to maintain and that is why I traded mine prior to warranty expiring. However, besides the price of maintenance I was never dissatisfied with any service. Porsche is expensive to buy and maintain however I have found most all their mechanics are top...
  4. Ford Mustang is the World's Best Selling Sports Coupe for the Seventh Straight Year

    Would be great if Ford dealers were #1 in customer service !
  5. Looking to Make the Jump t a S550 GT Premium - Need Some Advice

    I thought the 3.73 were the ratios for the GT manual. Would not want to go to 3.55 given the tranny gear ratio changes since 2018.
  6. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    Kona, Knowing that about this forum I figured if ANY engines were suspect they would show up among enthusiasts. Agreed, most here are not always grocery getters and expect more of their cars and given that are most likely more critical.
  7. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    Need to update my vehicles as I sold the 2016 Porsche GTS.
  8. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    OP here: Did not want to start a back and forth about Ford vs ?. I was just asking the question as had been away from the board for awhile. Any vehicle can have issues. Even Porsche had issues some 20 years ago with the IMS however, the dealers did not blink and offered new engines without...
  9. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    Ira, I believe you are correct. It would have to be someone who has the ability to collect national data. I would like to see MCA do this however most of what I have seen from MCA are past or upcoming events and warm stories about Mustang ownership. I was not a huge fan of MCA for that reason...
  10. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    One final thought that slipped by my old mind in the last post. I think Mike and Jeff are correct when they mentioned PCA and info sharing. Even Panorama magazine put out by PCA as well as other non PCA sponsored Porsche publications list detailed info about each generation Porsche and what the...
  11. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    Jeff, Mike, Interesting that the Porsche and Corvette guys dig deep into any issues that come up however most Ford and Mustang guys do not.. Most of Porsche data comes from folks who take an interest in keeping their cars for a good while and want to be proactive. Do not know if Porsche dealers...
  12. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    I agree failures are rare and also agree that more are likely to vent and bitch on a forum than those that are pleased or have no issues . Many owners most likely never go on a forum. I also agree more folks beat on a Mustang than would a Porsche. I am not questioning the fact that the 3rd Gen...
  13. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    Ira, I am sure in the broad scope of things you are correct and the chances of a Coyote engine self destructing is rare however, it does happen and all the opinions will not change that. I was not trying to start a back and forth war on whether or not a person likes or dislikes the Coyote just...
  14. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    Ryan, I hear you but it would be informative if someone who had the time and expertise put together a worthwhile spread sheet of engine issues. However, I agree the amount of add ons and power adders would be very involved and one would have to look at total amount made vs each issue vs engine...
  15. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    Bair14, SK 47, Thanks for the reply. Bair, I hear you and that is one of the reasons I traded the Porsche prior to end of warranty. Would never have one without an extended warranty. The engine and PDK cost would buy a GT. I would imagine that the actual number of total Coyote engine failures...
  16. Any studies on how many Coyote engine have issues that need replacement

    Been awhile since I have been active on the forum. Had 4 Mustangs so not stranger to them. In the past 3 years went from a custom '66 I had built to a Porsche and even a Miata but find myself missing that V8 sound and performance. When I got back looking at the forum I noticed a few posts on...
  17. Clarification on Colors and will their be a S550 or S650 for year 2022

    Bikeman, Thanks. I had thought that would be the case but with so little known about the S650 and the effects of Covid on present allotments of the S550 I wanted clarification. Appreciate the links.
  18. Clarification on Colors and will their be a S550 or S650 for year 2022

    Just saw a post from Steeda on S550 mustang colors for 2022 and want some clarity on what models will be out next. I had thought this would be the last year run for the S550 and the S650 would be out in 2022 however the Steeda post stated and showed the colors on GT and Mach 1 for 2022...
  19. I sold my Bullitt to Vroom for $48,681 !!!

    Coltgus, Can you do a comparison between the Mustang and the 340? Just curious..
  20. Regrets in Buying Mustang, It's Too Nice!

    I hear you and agree with most of what has been said. Last October I sold a Porsche 981 GTS because I was afraid of someone or something damaging it. I only put 2,000 miles on it in a year. I knew the condition and mileage would make a big difference when I sold it. That said, I missed a lot of...
