Dear members,

 

I wrote earlier this year about starting the process to buy a 2018 GT350.

 

I have been reading this forum and it is now obvious that the Voodoo engines may have major issues about oil consumption.

 

As of today, do we know if Ford is aware of the root cause of those issues?

 

What are the chances that Ford will fix those problems for good at the factory on the 2018 MY?

 

To be honest, i am scared at this point because i do not want to drop 55K-60K$ and be at the dealership having my engine replaced...

 

Thank you for your feedback.

I have a 2016, 9000 miles and in possession of a little over a year now.  Numerous track events and drive on the street regularly.

 

No issues with oil consumption on mine
