    This forum always attracts trolls but these fake GT350 owner trolls are even more amusing

    A lot of past owners would call it a turd in some ways. Not when it works though, I'll agree with that.

    It's an amazing motor, I don't see any real argument with that. The fact that some "fail" has no bearing on it. I had my motor replaced due to excessive oil consumption but it still ran great.

    Agreed for the most part. But, I don't blame some past owners that were down for months waiting for an engine replacement in the early days when Ford wasn't used to doing them (I and others waited upwards of two months or more). Nor the ones it has left stranded on the side of the road when it ate itself or drained all of its oil on the ground etc.

    Yep sold mine before the value dropped just like the GT350's oil when it throws a rod through the pan. That whole flat plane concept has bit Ford in the ass.

    Wow, that's a shitty situation to be in. Good luck dealing with the dealership man.

    I'm giving up on my search for an R as well.

    There are way too many dead motors without an explanation for me to take the risk on having to deal with a replacement engine and the associated time and effort that comes with that.

    i'll keep an eye on the 2019, 2020 models to see if there rates of failures drop since there are supposed to have been changes made to the motor.

    I'd be nervous if I owned one and the warranty was about to expire.

    That is my fear, the reputation of this model is now suspect. Nobody wants to buy a problem.

    You can give your R to me since no one will buy it. Send me a PM and I'll come get it.

    I wouldn't worry about that - most people that buy Mustangs have never been on this site or youtube. I was like that once and came here drunk in the absolute love for my Mustang wanting to partake in the group sharing of this euphoric feeling/phenomenon only to be stepped on/shattered by members of this forum.

    I now understand this is normal for every Mustang. I still god damn love that Mustang.

    Which is why I sold mine before it was. The Trinity in the last GT500 was bulletproof. Hoping for the same with the new one. The body was way better on the S197's so I'm also hoping the 500 will be better than that 350 I had.

    If you had one you'd know that the integrity of the S197 was better made in general. Hoping Ford get their head out of their asses.....oh wait your's is already in their's lol.

    ^ stop responding to the fake GT350 "past owner" troll. He'll eventually go away.

    I have 44,100 miles on my car. It requires 1 qt every 1,250 miles if I drive it in city/spirited and 1 qt every 3,000 miles for pure highway driving. No failures, no issues. I daily drive it. The only two things breaking on this car was A/C and rear diff pinion seal. Mine has been bullet proof still original clutch that holds like day 1.

    Clearly you don't know anything about Mustangs, because everyone knows that the Mustang II had the best chassis of all time.
