2014 5.0 warranty repairs.

So as some know my vehicle had paint issues under the hood, trunk and both doors which were eventually fixed. My new issues are what I suspect as a rear end noise, water in a side panel, sync not staying connected and the rear deck panel slowly starting to separate due to the tape.

I have to say the dealership has been great about the vehicle thus far. The paint was taken care of without question.

The service tech is telling me the rearend noise I'm hearing is actually the front tires as there is unusual wear on the insides of thre stock pirrellis. That's fine I'll rotate them and if noise continues I'll get the MT's I've been wanting. The leak was due to clogged drains and a faulty seal of some sort which is being replaced. They have also ordered a new Decklid panel to replace the original as they usually break when they try to retape the original. The sync issue has been unfounded thus far.

I guess what I'm getting at is for a vehicle that was bought in July 2014 and only has 10,400 miles on it, there is quite a bit of warranty work going into it. Especially if the noise really isn't the tires and actually is the rearend. I really love this car but it's scary to think if it will really last as long as I hope it does. It is meticulously cared for and garaged. It almost never sees rain or sits under trees. Idk is there anyone else that feels similar. Sorry for the long post.

The question I would be asking is why do the tires have unusual wear with only 10,400 miles on them? Front suspension or alignment problems?

Yea they went ahead and did an alignment. I'll look to see what the readout says when I pick it up. I'm curious about that though.

Where was the rear decklid panel separating from? Because it's not taped to the trunk lid.

Well mine never seen rain for the first 6 months until one day I said "screw it, it's just a mustang". Sure enough first rain storm water starts dripping on my shins running down to my socks. 14 gt with 20k. I'm not too happy either.

The top portion if you look down it looked as though the tape came off allowing water between the panel and the deck lid
