  1. Car won't start

    Out of nowhere - tonight, I punch the button like always, and the starter just spins and spins. Nice and snappy, but spins for several seconds then stops again. It's always started after maybe a second of cranking, very predictable and reliable. It's a 2018 GT PP1 MT82, never given me a lick...
  2. Me: I want leather seats and MyColor. Ford, 2022: No.

    I'm busy dreaming about my next Mustang. My must-have list: Mach 1, handling package, ball chillers, active exhaust. Looks like I'm all good. But... my 2018 has all that, plus... My Color selectable colors for interior lighting. With the 2022 configurator, I can only get MyColor with Recaro...

  5. Ford Performance Carbon Fiber shift knob threads - bad?

  6. Wheel well shroud chewed up

    Problem on my new-to-me '18 GT Premium PP1: the left-front wheel well shroud came loose, and the tire chewed it up and spat it out. My question is: would this be the sort of thing that is covered under the warranty? I'm just about to tick this thing over to 11,000 miles, so the base warranty...
