this is 2ed time, 1st was another dealer that replaced the engine but apparently fucked it up... it was there for 3-4 months....

I made a post in the Issues forum, but its making a grinding when slowing down. Sounds like large bolts in a bolt cleaner thing... and when in S mode if i switch from 1 to 2 it lunges... i thought it was trans but they arent sure. Its got 1200 on new engine and 13k on the car itself...
Damn, not good.
Good luck man.

What was your process to remove the oil filler neck? Ima too scared, I read plastic tabs might break off inside. Call me a sissy.
Ok I finally did it! LOL. So there looks like there is a tab that locks it in… I’m assuming this is the “click” everyone hears when removing. I also assuming it is single use by design, so no re-installing. Pics for those that care:crazy::

Drove it to work today and needed to fill up for the first time this year.
Nearly choked when I got gas. I only put 45L (12gal) in. This station was one of the cheaper ones too. Sorry, car no 94 for you today. Conversion: That's $8.33 a gal for 91 octane.

Called Michelin about their Pilot 4S tires the car came with. The manufacturer's warranty is void if it is OEM equipment (which in itself is bull). If staggered set, which the Bullitt came with halves the warranty (if they were new) from 30k to 15k miles anyway.

So after 25k miles and couple of the tires worn into the belting (noticed at tire swap, hence why I'm still on winters), I'm shopping for new. Kind of wanted to avoid Michelin due to this, but Costco has a deal for all-season Pilots for $1200 with install, which is about $200-300 cheaper than I've found tire rack etc.

Therefore probably gonna put all seasons on and keep the winters for only the harshest portions of winter Dec-Feb....

You know, if your car is a daily, and no track days, then all seasons are a great choice IMO. I do road course days to help me "behave" on the street. But A/S tires make it easier to get the rear end to slide a little every once in a while.

Looks like Michelin and Continental are still top choices for A/S tires.

Are you complaining about the MPS4s "only" lasting 20K miles?

They're Max Performance Summer Only tires, that's what they do. You get amazing grip & performance, but they're cashed at 20K or so miles, driving style dependent.

You chuck some all-season tires on your car and your handling, braking and acceleration will take a hit.

The old Pirelli MPS tires lasted 8K-10K miles, we've got it good now.

I thought putting lithium under the hood was a no no because of the heat. Everyone I have talked to only recommend AGM. Is that incorrect?
I know there are people on here that have run them over a year without issues, I think one or two did mention heat issues but also had the ATX30-HD which does sit higher in the battery box but is also larger in general. I have put a couple hundred miles on since install but it's hasn't been really warm yet either. I think the biggest issue with lithium is just don't overcharge them. I think the main reason people use AGM is price although not a lot and just fear of hearsay on the internet.

I have also read you have to disable the BMS with Forscan as it does not play well with Li batteries.

Yup, I think that's what I'm gonna do, go with A/S for the majority of the year. I've done 2 track events/open track in them, so I guess they "lasted," but still, dang.

I mean, sure, I wasn't sure what I was getting into. But at the same time, they had 2 fairly light track days in them, nothing too crazy. I'm more disappointed in Michelin's response that no warranty on OEM. I'm guessing Ford negotiates crazy discounts for the tires in exchange of no warranty.

I do like to drive spiritedly, but with 2 track days in 2 years, I think the Pilot 4s is just an overkill to get again. I doubt that for non-at-the-cutting-edge driving, all season Pilots will be great also.
They are still described as "Ultra High Performance" A/S tires, I think the performance won't diminish to a point I'll notice off track.

What warranty issue is there with the tires?
