I am not at liberty to discuss the goings on with my car until some resolution is reached, but, the tow truck driver was professional and nice, and he had a Harley, so it was all in fun. However, I told the noisy neighbor that my car had been repossessed, as, that is less shameful than the fact that it failed completely at just over 6000 miles, and, in any case, as quickly as warranty service is, it may as well have been repossessed. So, the tow truck driver became the repo man, and he was down with that.

Come to think of it, I wonder if my car ever made it to a Ford dealership? And, I might add that I have already learned a lot about the value of an included bumper to bumper new car warranty, that I was ignorant of all these years. But, one can not fight city hall, or big brother, and the Ford warranty covers all the issues of inconvenience or incurred costs, and, in fact, everything that could happen. And, I purchased the car, with the warranty, which Ford does not conceal, so, I accepted the conditions,which I now find, have absolutely no time limits set on repairs under warranty. So, the reports of long times spent at dealerships for warranty work are being borne out in my case as well. Perhaps it is an industry standard for autos, and, perhaps I have been spoiled by the excellent warranty responses of electronics firms that I have dealt with?

In any case, the status of my car that broke on Nov 28, is that the Ford dealership has it still, and, they are saying sometime next year, and that this is the best that they can do as they only have one heavy line tech, and only that one tech is authorized to do the work, which requires a big hunk of contiguous hours to do. And, indeed, while clutch work is pretty straightforward, it does take time as the trans has to be pulled. Good videos of a clutch install on a 2015, and up, Mustang, seem to say 6-8 hours labor, and, a helper with the work is also very useful as exhaust and driveshaft and heavy transmissions are difficult to deal with solo.

So, I wait........ And, I can't help but wonder what went wrong, as I have not beaten on the 2017 at all, and I am not a clutch killer.

I'd be on here more often, but my IPad loves to log me out of message boards and I rarely get time to sit in front of my PC these days.

That weekend would have been a no go for me, but a Pescador trip did sound like fun :-D

With the new software here there is a remember me option.

I have it set for 48hrs so the login will be good for two days.

I can extend if necessary.

Sorry for off topic reply. 🙏
