Nice looking Mustang, seen quite a few of them in the rear view mirror fading away.

My stripper 'Mero has the V6, with 335HP and 8 speed automatic. Had to take it to NH yesterday, and it returned 34 mpg for the trip. Only 10 HP less than my '01 vert, and better mileage stock.

Good luck with your crowd plow!

Note, I had two Rustang GTs - an '87 coupe and an '89 vert. The vert was waaaaaay more fun.

On the other side of the highway as you wait for a tow truck and ponder the cost of a new transmission?

He's not going to get my vote, or my guns. I sold ALL of my evil black, brown, and olive drab stuff along with all the accessories and acoutrements to a collector for a lump sum. No way in hell I'm selling my stuff to the Gmen at a severe discount just because we have a severe mental health crisis in the country that no one gives a shit enough about to try and fix it. Everything else is in in the boat; on the trailer and ready for a fun weekend on the water.

'Bought my wife a 2016 Ecoboost and she loves it! She nicknamed it the "ECOPONY".

From the "other" place. NOTE: no insult intended, just info.

Thread
"Wall St Cuts "Ford Motor Company" to Junk Status!"

some comments

"Check engine light came on on my work 250 Transit van. Code says it's an O2 sensor. Still under warranty.
I called 2 Ford dealerships and they are both backed up in service close to a month and a half out.
Service depts being that backed up should be a telltale of how good Ford cars are ....

and
My nephew is a Certified Ford mechanic.

He drives a Toyota cause he hates working on cars.

He recently told me to stay the **** away from Ford, especially the EcoBust engines. We get all the hours we want fixing that shit. "

38+K on the wife's Ecoboost with no problems reported. I do squirt a can of Seafoam into the engine every 10K since the back side of the intake valves don't get any love from the fuel.

Just my opinion here, but this seems highly unusual to me.
I've had a Ford for 7 years in a row now, and always got immediate service, even warranty work, done within 2 days of service request.
Had an engine replaced, under warranty, in 1 week. Took 1 day to get it in.
Two different dealerships are constantly sending "service" reminder e-mails, snail mails, and text messages right now.
No back-logs here.

So Wall st doesn't care for the new guy and his bold plan to quit building cars and focus on trucks... he'll likely be gone within 12 months after the stock tanks even further but the company will survive.
I personally know 4 people with Ecoboost powered vehicles. Some have at least 20k on them with zero issues so far.
I work at a dealership... not cars but heavy equipment. Our service backlog comes from having a critical shortage of qualified techs to hire; not from trouble with manufacturer's quality. YMMV, travel at your own risk.

Maybe now you can help answer the question, why do so many people lose their shoes when hit by a car?
