Anyways, I talked to my uncle, who retired from Ford recently (getting the Z plan through him). He said they found the problem - the engine was making a chirping noise. Some cars already released had the noise, some didn't. So they're going through and fixing that on all of them. He said it's not a big deal.

Not sure if this has already been covered or if other people have heard differently, but just wanted to pass that along.
There is a TSB out for this concern, but engineering is still working on the issue. It further states there is not yet a fix for the issue and do not attempt any repairs. "Stay tuned for updates", it goes on to read ...."UNTIL A NEW SERVICE PROCEDURE AND/OR PARTS ARE AVAILABLE DO NOT ATTEMPT REPAIR. MONITOR ##### FOR UPDATES."

Personally, I heard it was a shortage of several certain parts and they were releasing the vehicles as the parts came in and were put on the cars. don't know for sure, though.
