    I talked to the mechanics at the Track Attack. They said they only has problems with a few pullies vibrating loose. They use better brake fluid, change the pads often and replace a lot of tires.

    2016 vintage, 20,000 km,
    tail end of second set of shoes. Not really any burnouts (too expensive at 600 a corner) may try a cheap set next and have real fun this summer .
    limp mode once last summer. guys are saying that is due to transmission over heated (cooler in my sights),
    had a ticking from left rear, almost since new, (in tight corners you really hear tick tick bouncing off barricades and buildings), dealer put in a half shaft, did not find anything wrong with shaft they pulled, only drove 100 km since, all is good so far see what that sounds like this year

    some times sync is a bit glitchy

    uses about 1 liter every 5000km

    no stereo issues, first upgrade was a 7k system at auto sound plus, installed 2-10" subs in spare tire hole, all new hertz speakers and 2 amps.

    love the car, its a beast, best pony i have had

    a few really bad tickets in the first year, alp radar and parking system have solved that problem

    Cheers drive safe

    My 2017 has 21,000 miles on it. About 10 track days, the rests is long trips. My only warranty issue was a small leak from the oil temp sending unit on the side of the block. I have high oil consumption even on normal driving trips. Have you heard of any fix or help from Ford?

    How much oil consumption are you experiencing?

    I traded my 2016 for a 2019 R a few months ago. Both daily drivers. Had 24k on 2016.

    Only problems were with the A/C. Lost an evaporator and a compressor. Compressor problem was intermittent. Took a whole damn to finally nail it.

    Hence losing warranty was one of the reasons I traded.

    No oil problems. No tire problems. Overall, a great car.
    KR558

    (2016 GT350 traded in)

    H2649 here. 23K miles. Bought it in March of '17. I daily drove it for a year after buying. No problems or funny noises. Still love that sound....

    What year? 16 tech? Mine is and I added the OEM trans cooler. Does a great job keeping it cool on track.

    2017 with 12K, including a few track days. Had to replace tires and front brake pads at 8K. Warranty fix on oil catch can, though I had no issues. I change the oil before any track days and have never had to add oil. I had a rear shock stick in sport mode and it was replaced under warranty. That is it. I took my wife out for a drive yesterday. 45 miles over some twisty mountain roads did us a lot of good with this shelter in place thing. It's like a new car.

    Mine is also a 16 Tech. I also added the factory trans cooler and enabled the trans temp gauge.
