Default Will I still be welcome here????

I just got back from the stealership and there is now a 2019 Ecoboost Mustang parked in my yard. I somehow managed no lurid slides, and no curbs or pedestrians were maimed in the process. Can I still come out and play here?

Sure, you can still hang out here.

As far as the no curbs or pedestrians, there is always tomorrow

She'll get even one day when you try to sell the Mustang and you find lesbians are not flocking to your door with cash for it like they would for the Subaru.

Of course you're still welcome here. Be sure to invite Buffy and Tiffany from your sorority too.

Sounds like about the most Mustang thing I can think of.

Seriously though, congrats. What's the warranty on the rear tires?

For the measly sum of $23 and change a month on top of the vig I got a Ford issued "bumper to bumper" warranty with a $100 deductible. Supposedly covers even "wear items". So for the next 96 months I guess rears cost the $100 deductible, unless the saleshole forgot to read us something important enough to disqualify whatever might actually happen.

Need more info.

Motor specs?
I got a '19 Edge ST with the twin turbo V6.
(Too old for the smaller passenger car, I haul utility trailer around town).

2.3 liter single turbo. 310 horsepower. 10 speed auto with paddle shifters if you wish to use them. I have driven it all of 15 miles so far so I can't yet comment on much about vehicle dynamics or actual performance.

Kind of mind-blowing, the amount of power coming out of these
turbo boosted engines nowadays (335hp in mine).
I didn't get the extended warranty with mine, but I will before
the 3 year B-B warranty runs out. (Had it with my '11 Escape, and needed
the extra years to get the engine replaced).
Too dang many bells & whistles nowadays that could possibly go wrong.
