  1. What kind of driving do you do with your GT350? I have had no issue with the Ford motor oil in mine, but I am not in an area that allows me to drive it really hard. If you are just street driving, or even street racing the Motorcraft should work without a problem, but if you are on the track a lot, then yes I would definitely be looking for something better.
  2. Warranty questions are best answered by Ford Motor company or by Shelby American. Not on a thread in any forum. Go to the source.
  3. Congratulations man! Look forward to seeing that 350!
  4. I have nearly 6000 on mine and have had no oil consumption whatsoever.
  5. That is incorrect in regard to ford not notifying you, I have only owned Fords and I have received all issues with both my F-250 and my Shelby. In regard to the absolute absurdity that is 6 sigma, I do not care about that in the least. In regard to the engine failures due to oil consumption, well is an owner issue. Check your oil, make sure that it is not falling below safe operating levels and you will be fine, its called owner maintenance and anyone with a vehicle that does not check their fluid levels regularly should not own anything other than a minivan or a Hyundai, definitely not a high performance car like a Shelby.
  6. I am curious, what are "all the issues"? I am looking at tons of forums, and recalls (which there are none) and do not see any issues with the GT350.
  7. I am new to the Shelby group and have had my 2018 GT350 for a year. I come from a family of backyard mechanics that drove nothing but American Muscle. I was a Pontiac guy primarily, but love cars in general I've owned 1 GTO, 7 different Trans Am's and 4 Firebirds. This is my second mustang, 1st Shelby and I love it. I have the Recaro seats, I stand 6'1" and work out a lot so I am weighing in at 220lbs. I like that these seats are snug and so does the wife. This car is definitely my daily driver because I just can't get enough of being behind the wheel. I take it to the 1/4m track nearly every Saturday night and I do quite well with it, and so far I have not upgraded the engine at all. The Voodoo motor growls and has some great power from the hole shot to the end of the track and it wants more. It is equally impressive on the turns when I get with the mustang club and cruise. My previous car was a 2017 GT, that coyote was pretty impressive, but it doesn't compare to my 350. I plan to hold on to this baby for the long run. I think there are those that are car enthusiasts and there are those that are merely drivers. The GT350 is definitely an enthusiasts car, someone looking to get into a car and go for a drive and maybe do some showing off would be best to buy a coyote. Just my two cents.
  8. New member here. Bought my GT350 here in Guam in Feb 2019. Was looking for something to put on the track and to drive around. Found this GT350 and negotiated a fair price. Love it!
