I have a 2016 Shelby GT350 that has only 1572 miles on it and the AC is no longer blowing cold air. The warranty has run out so I’m sure this will be an expensive repair. This car has never been raced or had a tire spun and stays in a climate controlled garage. Just wandering if this is a common problem with others and if anyone knows who to call or write at Ford to hopefully get this taken care of. The chevy guys are horse laughing me with the “fix or repair daily” jokes and “found on road dead” with no ac, I guess I should have bought a 350r and I wouldn’t have this problem, “first on race day” is not working for me, please help !

Sadly very common problem with the 350. Check some other forums such as mustangsg.com and you will see. If out of warranty GM will not cover it under any warranty unless you have an extended warranty. And if its the compressor which most are the entire dash has to be pulled out to get to it. Good luck.

You must just be outside of the 3YR/36K bumper-to-bumper?

They will still let you add an extended warranty - buy one.

About 45 days after you started the warranty show up at the dealer with a blank look on your face and tell them the A/C isn't working.

The thousands of dollars it will cost you to fix an A/C issue will pay for the extended warranty.

You can buy them online and tweak them for high time/low mileage.

If you bought it new you're putting less than 550 miles a year on it...

**EDIT: If you're in Florida you can't buy these online - change of plans - go to the dealership and buy one - still cheaper than paying for the A/C repair!**

Bro to replace the a/c compressor you don’t have to remove the dash. The A/C compressor is in the engine bay.

I bet it’s the compressor, mine is 2018 with 10,870 miles, had it replaced under warranty, it was still cooling but making a whining noise which I kind of knew the compressor was getting ready to go out, is not uncommon to see a/c compressor failures on Mustangs. Also there were a lot of issues with 2015-2016 Mustang’s a/c evaporators leaking which require complete teardown and dash removal for replacement but I haven’t heard or seen 2016 GT350s having the same issue.

Yes, common problem.

The good news is, it's just a Mustang. Dealer or independent should be able to handle it at domestic car
prices.

I had double problem, evaporator leak AND bad compressor. But covered by warranty. Problem was, trouble was intermitent, took over a year to get it to fail in the dealer's service lane.
