    Don’t Buy This Leadfoot gray GT350

    I am going through the buyback process of my GT 350 after its second engine and clutch still sticking to the floor. Also A wrench light is displayed while driving and the hill start assist disabled upon coming to a stop .

    Some people think I’m crazy to buy another one after these problems and reading the forums with over 30 failed engines .. but where else can you get V8 rev’ing to 8,250 Rpm and a FPC (Flat Plane Crank)

    My car wash guy told me a funny but true statement.. He goes Look, “it’s not about the miles per gallon... it’s the Smiles per gallon” 😭😭😂 lol

    Anyway let me get back on task..
    So going through the buyback, i’m again, in the market for a GT 350. When I saw FORD’s inventory from there website I saw there was one available at Scarsdale FORD , which was about 1 mile away , GREAT! (So I thought) I walked in I didn’t see it on the showroom floor I walked the small lot and almost didn’t see it and then it was hiding all the way in the back, and I thought to myself why !? Well here’s Why...

    You and I can guess this car will be repaired locally and sold as-new SMH 🏻

    So if it wasn’t that this dealer didn’t take me seriously when I was in the market buying my first one and blew me off like I’m some young punk , I probably wouldn’t post this lol BUT Karmas a B*tch loll take that SCARSDALE Ford

    Wow, that's an awful thing to see! Based on the window sticker date that's been at the dealer (or somewhere) since May of this year...can't believe it's just sitting there, crazy!! OP. what's the story on that GT350?

    Good lookin out on the damaged one, but I have a question. Or more a recommendation on how you should respond to folks...

    If you had a greater than 95% chance of winning the lottery, would you play? If skydiving had less than a 5% failure rate, would you jump? If divorce had a less than 5% failure rate, would you get married? Hell, people get married when it has a 50% failure rate, so why the $%&@ are soooo many people hell bent on bashing this engine when blown motors and replacements for burning oil, to the best of anyone's knowledge, account for way less than 5% of these things running the streets? The forums have ruined the attitude about this thing and ran off probably many potential customers. Oh well. I'm a glass half full kinda guy. Assume you are too since you're getting another one (I'd do the same without hesitation), so maybe spread that to the naysayers. Over 30 failed engines...with tens of thousands on the road!?!? I get it though, I know it's completely aggravating when you're the one affected. It just sucks all around.

    Tens of Thousands of these on the road? Wait a minute. I thought I read that this is a limited production car. That they make just 5500 a year. When was the VooDoo first installed? 2015? So, maybe just 22k on the road? Even if that’s true, I agree that the engine failure rate sounds over reported. Unless of course, you’re one of those whose engine blew up. I do get the worry part of this high revving engine. But don’t let it take away from the joy of driving this beast. Smiles per gallon......I like that one.😎
