My goodness and I thought I had bad luck with cars. Well onto my list for the SHO.

2013 SHO PP

51k miles both inner fenders needed to be replaced due to being completely rotted. Covered under CPO warranty

54k passenger side inner and out tie rods covered under CPO

58k while replacing downpipes noticed front turbo compressor wheel was rubbing the housing. Replaced both turbos along with all gaskets, oil and coolant lines with Ford factory parts. Roughly $1400 in parts did the job with friend so labor was free.

60k drivers door switch stopped working $150

62k passenger control arm $110

63k nut on drivers lower ball joint came loose going down highway. So I replaced entire control arm. $110

65k while checking my oil the dipstick handle snapped off. I couldnít believe it. $6 at ford dealer

Iím now at 67k and I currently have the most annoying rattle coming from my passenger seat. Itís constant and Iím getting ready to pull a Jordan and take the seats out. Lol

Holy crap. This makes me wonder what day of the week my car was built. 2015 PP 52k miles. Has not had to go back to the dealer even once since I took it off the showroom. I didn't want to take it in for the fuel pump module recall so I replaced it myself and was reimbursed by Ford. The battery failed exactly 3 years to the day that I bought it. Other than that, it runs and drives and looks like new. KNOCK ON WOOD.

I forgot the best thing. When a local FORD dealer replaced my passenger arm under CPO. They installed the rear bushing upside down. No wonder under hard launch the car would always pull to right. I didnít notice until I got it on a lift myself to look at drivers arm when the nut loosened. So there for I replaced the entire passenger arm again his time myself and correctly.

Because of this I kind of thought of my car as a freak but to be fair I probably don't drive it as hard as most of you. Hasn't been to the strip in several years after my final tune. Just a DD that's always ready to pounce on prey.

Damn brother sorry to hear that!  If it makes you feel any better I slightly curbed my passenger side wheels (took plasti dip off) going into the fricken touchless car wash down the street from the track before I ran my best time.  The entrance was angled upwards and no where else but there was a metal guide on the right side to ender the car wash even though theres no guide track inside.  Was so pissed and the jets were so strong they flaked pieces of my carbon fiber window trim wrap off....the complete opposite experince expected at a "touchless" car wash!

I remember you telling me this at the track that night. That is one dangerous touchless lol. I mean Iím pretty pissed about it. Iím ok the car is ok and I can buy wheels and tires. Thats really all that matters I can buy metal and rubber. I canít buy a new life. That ***hole would have killed me if I didnít choose the curb.

So now on to the fun stuff what should I replace them with lol

I'm thinking about upgrading my tires.  Currently I have Continental Extreme Contact DW tires, purchased in 2017 in the beginning of that year.  They have 7k miles on them.  If you might be interested let me know.  They are offsize.  245/40/20 pair and 275/35/20 pair.

Thatís the exact tire I run on my car. Except I run 265/35/20 at all 4 corners. I really appreciate the offer buddy. But I think the plan is buy a set of wheels and tires. Iíll keep the 3 flowers and look for a deal on 1. Then just buy some snows for them.

I'm coming up on 4 years with this car and I haven't had a major problem. I bought it w/ 14k miles and it now has 71k and has been tuned for over 50k miles. The only issue I have is a small oil leak somewhere. it seems like a rear main seal but I can't see far enough up the motor from under to see if it may be a valve cover leaking. it's very minor, maybe 1 drop of oil a week in my garage.
oh, and the cut rear springs are still fine and the car rides great
