    My 2019 Mustang GT has arrived!

    After 8 months of endless waiting finally sits on dealer's parking lot.

    This is good news.
    Bad news is that the car was damaged during transit. The front (windshield) glass and the rear glass are scratched.

    Dealership ordered both new windshield and rear glass.
    Both will be changed under warranty.

    And there is 78.6km on car's counter.

    Should I be worried?

    42.3 L per 100kms? Did they tape the pedal to the floor or something? I would question this for sure with the dealership.

    How bad are the scratches?. Can those be polished? I would inquire about other options besides replacing both windshields. That’s a big job and if done incorrectly it can lead to many problems.

    Scratches are not bad (deep). They were polished by specialist today, but result is not very good.
    Dealer still want to change windshields.
    I also don't like the idea, but it looks there is no many alternatives.

    If the car was stand still with engine on, some strange values can be calculating in few minutes. It only made 4.8km in this "session" of 1h 25min. I don't know, how ECU software reacts in situation like this, so I don't intend to do big story about this at the moment.
    Maybe they update some software and engine has to run while updating?
    But I will ask the dealer about his explanation.

    Ingot is one of the few silver paints I actually like. Looks great, congrats! Once the glass is cleared up you couldn't be happier with a car.

    I
    Congrats on your new car. Its an export as mine i also waited a very long time for it. They drove my car from the port to the dealer it was a 320km i hated that they should have gotten a platform for it. The glass you will need yo buy glass polisher and special pads search online you will fine them and dont worry also if the dealer changes them wonder what would scratch the glass.
    Enjoy your new ride.

    Very nice!

    Sucks about the scratches and the mileage. I’d definitely question them on that. Mine had 6 miles on it if I remember correctly.

    Nice looking car. I would definitely let the dealership replace the damaged glass. BTW, my stang had only 18-19 kilometers on the odometer when I took delivery.

    I would definitely question that mileage. Mine had about 3 miles on it when I picked it up.

    I'd get those wheels with a Kona Blue if I were to get a new Mustang. They look great. I just wish they did square setups from Ford since there are people out there that like to rotate tires like me.

    Congrats on the new car. Few minor issues, but easily fixable. My passenger door scratched my paint from rubbing on the inner part due to misalignment so don't feel bad.

    Windshield replacement is absolutely not a big job. Not even close. In US, there are companies that would do them (Safelite for example) at the parking lot while you're at work. It's cut one out, glue another one in job.

    Safelite sucks. Their idea is to get it done as quick as possible and leave. I stood there and watched the guy change my windshield when I saw how quickly he was trying to get it done and he knicked the paint with the knife they use to cut the urethane. All because he was in a rush.

    I can't speak for the Mustang, but select vehicles, like a Jeep Wrangler, are notoriously tricky to seat the windshield just right, resulting in a whistle frequently (Note: the near-90-degree angle of the windshield is also cause for frequent replacement). If the windshield whistles, they just have to reinstall it again if it bothers you, which would be the case with a brand new vehicle.

    But agree, generally not a big job, an hour to get in, an hour to install, an hour to set. 3 hours tops.
