2014 Mustang GT purchase advise

August 20, of this year I was in the Ford Dealers seeing a friend who is the sales manager. He was ordering new inventory for the lot. I said let me spec out a Mustang and if I like it I'll buy it. It was understood I was not obligated to purchase it.
White/stone GT premium with only options being automatic and remote start.
The car finally came in Sunday October 13, a Sunday. I got to look the car over that afternoon and liked it's looks.
During the period I had to wait, I kept up with the Mustang forums and one recurring point kept coming up. The engine tick after some miles were on the Coyote and the replacement in some cases of the engine.
Is this an ongoing factor and it makes me hesitate to purchase the car with that in the back of my mind.
Anything new on this ?
Thanks.

Look at it this way, who is mostly likely to post, people who have the tick or people who are very happy with their car. I think we hear more about the horror stories.

I'm sure some people on here can give you positive reviews as well.

I purchased my 2013GT in June, 2013. 16,000 mikes later it literally has required zero repairs or adjustments. Just recommended maintenance. I don't want to jinx myself, but so far this has been the most reliable car I have ever owned.
