New CSGT owner

Hi everyone!

I have a 2013 California Special GT I bought December 16th last year. Had to wait a week to get it bc none of the dealerships in the Orlando area had any CS's on the lot if you can believe it! Looking forward to getting Borla type S axle backs for Xmas so it can sound like a real V8. Had a modded Audi A4 turbo Quattro I traded in on the stang. Had a 2003 V6 stang back in high school so its nice to get back in the saddle with a V8. Also have a built motor twin turbo 350Z pushing 515rwhp

Thank you! And just an fyi i am not a guy lol, its ok though I'm pretty used to it.

I really love the car, there are a few quality defects I've found that I'm not too thrilled about so far but not enough to make me hate the car. I will say one thing though ford service does not even compare to Audi service that I'm used to! Lol

Lol defects like what and no service is as good as Lincoln that's where I take my truck and car cuz my parents own Lincoln's so I was grandfathered in so I get special treatment also helps that they've bought every car they've ever owned from that dealership.

All the threads have come out of my drivers seat already and the trunk is rusting the brakes have also squeaked since the day I bought it. I brought it in for the brakes with an appt and had to wait 5 hours on my day off for them to tell me i had to bring it back during the week bc no one knows how to fix it that works the weekend, now the dealership says the brakes are supposed to squeak (yeah ok) and that I have to take the car to get pictures taken of the rust and threads so they can send it to Ford for a decision. Audi would replace everything as soon as they saw it and give me a new Audi loaner car if I didn't want to wait for repairs. Sigh. I wish I hadn't gotten the extended warranty now bc I can't stand having to take it in!

Yea Lincoln would've never done that to me that's bull**** even if you are a new customer. And I got a new extended warranty that covers anything and everything up to 75,000 miles and I'd get a Lincoln to drive mad dies the same last time he brought his 12' v6 in they have him a car of his choosing to drive you need to find a new dealership

Pics of the rust, it's when you open the trunk under the spoiler on the sides, it's exposed metal with just a plastic sticker over it

Yea Lincoln is a ford product. Go to a dealer they have ford products on the used car lot almost 100% sure they do so their service department has the ability to help you out. I've never seen one that doesn't accept fords
