  1. Was this anyone’s stolen Shelby?

    It's nice to see Karma get it right every once in awhile.
  2. You have to laugh - it's our fault our cars are easy to steal

    I wouldn't mind having a kill switch wired to the fuel pump or starter circuit for when I park at the airport.
  3. What lug nut torque have you settled on?

    110 is serving me well.
  4. Pre facelift vs facelift S550

    IMO the best looking Mustang would be a 2018 with a 2017 nose and a hood vent delete.
  5. Front passenger buzz/rattle!!!

    Have a passenger lay his or her hand on the defroster vent while you're driving. That's how I found mine.
  6. Tiny door dings

    I absolutely do. I have one in the same area, but lower, that I did myself while reinstalling my driver's seat. And more recently I got one just underneath my mirror, from my other Mustang that sits opposite of it in the garage. 😖 I need to get on the hunt for a new PDR guy, as the one I really...
  7. Tiny door dings

    I can't say whether you have to take off the interior panel or if you can get to it from the fender liner, but I will say, don't do it. I tried this on my 2011 Kia Optima and made it worse. It's a skill that requires training.
  8. If you live in a state that requires front license plate, do you rock one?

    I got lucky with my first three Mustangs in that the dealerships did not drill license plate holes in the front bumpers, so I never installed a plate on them. Even my 2017 V6 which I bought in 2021 never got drilled in Colorado. The Mustang I have now had a plate holder, which I quickly...
  9. Make your voices heard

    I read all the time that this transmission is smooth as silk in the F150 and Silverado. My mother-in-law's F150 drove great for me. Why Ford had to jack it up in the Mustang is anyone's guess.
  10. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Now that the transmission issues are seemingly resolved, I continued down my list of mods. Spoiler & catch can installed today.

    Thankfully it didn't turn out as badly as it could have. Dropped it off at 7:00 a.m. monday, picked it up at 5:00 tonight. I'm guessing somebody took one look at the symptoms on the work order, knew exactly what the problem was, and jumped me ahead of the more serious cases. Transmission...
  12. Oil filter O ring It does not lubricate

    I guess I hadn't heard that oil filters loosening to the point of leaking, or dropping off the engines was a widespread problem. My take: No lubrication on the seal will cause it to drag on the mating surface, making the filter seem like it's tightened more than it is. If there's enough...
  13. Warranty Question - 2nd Owners

    Hey guys, Just read through the 2018 warranty guide and couldn't find any reference to warranty coverage for 2nd owners. Does the 3/36 / 5/50 carry over to 2nd owners, or is there a reduction in coverage (like only the 5/50, or less)?

    My appointment to have this transmission looked at is tomorrow morning. I decided to create a Plan B for when Rockwall Ford says I need to leave it with them and they'll look at it in 2 weeks. Plan B is pictured below. I'm officially tired of dicking with these transmissions. I've slept on...

    While "fundamentally flawed" may be a bit of overkill, I think it's a little more than coincidental that I've had two of them do this to me. As a consumer who has had two in a row with problems, it's hard not to feel like there may be a design / software issue lurking.

  17. 10R80 Owners - ULTIMATE M6G 10R80 Facts + Resolutions to harsh or no shift conditions

    That's actually how mine started out weeks ago, an odd "double thud" when engaging reverse to back out of my garage in the morning. I didn't really give it much attention, because these transmissions have never been as smooth operator...for me anyway. Now it's escalated to Drive, and gotten worse..
  18. Make your voices heard

    Guys, I find myself in a difficult situation with the transmission in this car. 2 local dealerships are telling me that I will need to drop the car off and let it set there between 7 days and 2.5 weeks before someone will look at it. I hung up with them and called Ford customer relations and...
