Higher Mileage GT350's

I read a lot on this (and other) forums about the "garage queens" with little to no mileage and some daily drivers with several thousand miles. I'm curious to hear if there are any daily drivers with 20k to 30k (or more) miles on their GT350? I would like to know how they are holding up. Please advise if this fits you.

I have 15,000 miles on my GT350, never had an issue and it's still like new except for needing a new pair of shoes. You may find a couple with 20K+ miles, but I would be surprised if any significant number of owners with that kind of mileage will respond on this forum.

I am still debating on how I will be driving mine. I had a 2002 Mustang GT with only 88000 miles on it when I bought a 2010 Roush 427R, which has 45000 right now. I will be driving it though.

10,500 miles on mine. I drive it like I stole it. 3 track weekends at Willow Springs with COCOA. No issues a new set of rear tires didn't fix. Other than limp mode but that fix is pending.

Think about the Track Attack cars. Being abused most of their lives...it would be apparently obvious if the engine wasn't holding up.

True - but we aren't hearing about the level of service, repairs and replacements those vehicles are receiving.

Only real issues with these cars are that some like mine eat oil and others eat oil excessively and have had motors replaced. Be thankful your car isnt eating any oil.
I run about a quart every 1200 miles

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 :eek:.
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 :p

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?

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.

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.
