Bottom line: this is new/newer car.................this shouldn't even be an issue! Ford needs to figure it out and fix!
I agree 100%. Just got off the phone with the service manager for my 2008 GT 500. And I've explained to him what had happened in the past few weeks. They asked me if they could keep the car for another week to see if the car would start by next week.
Here's a brief history:
Bought the car from the showroom 28 Oct 07. Drove it home and had it out for quite a few times on the road during the month of November.
Dec 07, it was only driven once for about 5 miles (reason being, I just had a baby and my husband deployed to Iraq, so I was able to take the car out on the 17th of December around our neighborhood)
4 Jan 08, the car didn't start and I had to jump it. I drove it for 40 miles.
17 Jan 08, the car started and drove it for again, 40 miles.
26 Jan 08, the car started but I only left it in the garage on idle for 5 minutes.
3 Feb 08, the car didn't start and again, I had to jump it. I drove it for 20 miles.
10 Feb 08, the car DIDN'T start and already frustrated, jumped the car and drove it for about 20 miles.
13 Feb 08, the car didn't start and I wasn't able to jump it at all!!! The battery was completely drained. I called the Ford Dealer here to take a look at the car as soon as they can. They weren't able to come to my rescue until 19 Feb, and the car easily started when they brought in a stand alone battery charge. Of course, initially, they suggested that I should call Roadside Assistance to have someone tow the car...I laughed synically and to my disbelief, I told him "hell, no". The only way the car is getting out of my garage is to bubble wrap it and then get towed.
19 - 21 Feb.... car is still in the dealer, service manager told me that there is a Ford Bulletin out there that mentioned this problem on the newer Mustangs and recommends to have the car driven once a week. Again, not the ultimate option for a brand new car!!! So...as it stands, it is still in the dealer's service dock sitting quietly until they will make an attempt to start it next week. The only good thing that is happening right now is that the sales manager wants to make sure that we are 100% satisfied with the service and that the car is taken care off before I bring it home again.
