Check your battery for cracks. Search and you will see it is a VERY common problem.

No I mean the new challenger looks more like the classic charger than the classic challenger imo.

Just caught this thread. Back to your original question: I got the Ford phone calls/mail about buying extended warranty as a year started to pass. My thinking then (just six months ago) is the same as now. One of the draws for the 3.7 to me was that I got good gas mileage and the car was effectively modular. I've replaced a lot of stuff (out of 'want' not 'need') and continue to be impressed at how easy the car is to work on. Couple that with my really having no problems with it, made opting to not buy the warranty right for me. Short of the AC unit going belly up or trans problems, it really isn't worth it. However, as I have encroached well into middle age, I'm at a place in my life where if something breaks I just throw money at the problem to make it go away. Thirty years ago when I was struggling to makes ends meet and pay tuition - that was a different story. Not knowing how old you are, I'd suggest asking yourself if you had a $1,000 surprise happen suddenly, would Ramen Noodles and Peanut Butter constitute at least two meals a day for you? I'm kidding but not entirely. Surprises always hurt worse than budgeted and expected expenses. Two cents from the old guy for your consideration. Good luck.

Best Chicken noodle soup--And Cheap



Ingrediants:::
Ramen Noodles ( Chicken Flavor)
Progresso Tuscan Chicken Broth ( Must be Tuscan)
Sliced or caned Chicken
Morton seasoning

Recipe:
1 Cup of water to a boil
1 & 3/4 cups of the Progresso Broth.
When it boils again add the packet from the ramen noodle package. ( Stir)
Set timer for three minutes ( Important)
Add the noodles.(Stir)
After first minute add the amount of chicken you would like.
add just a tad of Mortons seasoning
Cook for two more minutes
Done,
Sprinkle a little parsley ( Only for garnish)

This is my very secrete recipe and I'm only sharing it with you all so you can now afford to get an extended warranty, If not the warranty you can afford any repairs needed.
Ronnie

good advice. I'm in a position where if something happened, I wouldn't have a problem throwing money down to fix it. just wasn't sure really because I've never had a car crap out really (only had 2 cars prior, a 91 Nissan pickup and an 01 Frontier.) I've read the Mustang is pretty good quality wise, but i also hear about the control arms going bad, the throttle body, etc. I already had my rear end fixed when the pinion seal leaked, so that's good.

Also worth considering is that if you are comfortable paying money to do repairs as needed, you can choose what shop you use--and not have to leave your precious in the Cro-Magnon hands of FoMoCo dealership service techs.

that's true, but who's to say any other shop is any better? mechanics in general are just as sleazy as car salesmen..until you find a good one you can legit trust, they'll all try to screw you.

i've got a guy who seems to be pretty good that my dad's been going to for years, so that's good.

Oh I'd buy an 11/12 GT before anything for sure but if someone said I had to buy new... The Mustang is now worse in every category than the Camaro and not as powerful or good looking as a 6.4L Challenger. Bleh.

At a minimum, you've got more choices when picking independent shops vs dealers, so probability of finding a good indrpendent shop > probability of finding dealer with good service dept.

My warranty is almost up...

You could also make the argument that some people want jobs done for very little to nothing. There's a good amount of those people in our area. Giving work away doesn't pay bills.


Adventure till you drop.

First of all, our car is very reliable and tough to destroy.

Second, if you are like me and want to mod your car, the warranty is void anyway, am I right? Why spend money for something you will be declined later on.

Last but not the least, when things are broken, it is time to upgrade, am I right? Isn't it fun to work on it yourself?

The bottom line is that it is rare your car will have a blown motor or transmission these days. I think this is a very easy decision.
