Ford Call To Action - Fix Limp Mode!

Anyone who owns a 2015 or 2016 GT350 (non track option) should read this thread and contact Ford!

I own a 2016 Tech Pack. I specifically asked the salesman before I bought the car if it had the track package and I was told that the Tech pack included the Track pack options. As you can expect, I'm not very happy to find out that my car doesn't have the diff and trans coolers it needs to even last a 20 min track session without going into limp mode. I'm at 4500+ above sea level and planned on tracking the car often. I am very disappointed that Ford marketed this car as a track car, but I can't even use it as such. I've submitted a claim to Ford and received the following unacceptable response. FRUSTRATED!! I would expect Ford to rectify this situation and stand by the GT350 marketing as it being a track car.

This sounds terrible. I'm sorry for your bad experience. That salesman straight up had no idea what he was talking about and was sayin whatever he could to get it sold. High commish on these bad boys. Are you sure it can't handle a 20 minute track sesh? Ford should provide you with the coolers for free somxe their ignorant salesman told you it had em tight? Idk. When I was shopping I looked to see which ones had track pack specifically. Only ones I found around me were base models and 1 track pack. Went with the track pack. I too plan on tracking it. Hope it lives up to the hype. Keep this thread updated if anything comes of it. You still have a sweet ride at the end of the day :grin:
I was told by a Ford engineer that I would be disappointed by my tech pack car at the track. I really wasn't. I did hit limp mode, but it was on the last lap of the session. I plan on fixing the problem but I would like a Ford solution. Living in the desert, I really like my cooled seats. I wish I had known the 2017 cars were going to correct the shortcomings of the tech pack cars.
