Title pretty much says it all. I just turned 1,000 miles on the OD last night. Have not had any problems at all with the car and mine was produced 5-8-10. In regards to the MPG I have really been driving this vehicle quite hard and am having lots of fun. This vehicle is more fun to drive than the 2008 GT500 I had; lighter, better balanced and incredible handling.:bigthumbsup

How did you know what your status was? It looks like you've copied and pasted that information from somewhere.

Thanks!

IS there a way to track our vehicles that are in transit directly?

Thanks for posting your findings after 1000 miles! These are the kind of reports/reviews I'm keeping an eye out for!
Now go out there and change that oil and filter! Yeah, I know they say newer engines don't need that initial early changeout these days, but regardless, I plan to do it at 1000 miles when I get mine. Is it true the sump now takes 10 quarts? Yikes, gotta get me a larger oil drain pan at Walmart! :)

8QTS. Will switch to Mobil 1 at approx 2k miles. Ford manuals are now saying change oil every year or 10,000 miles. 10k on an oil change?! This is what happens when bean counters make service recommendations.

Cars that take full synthetic have recommended 10-12k oil changes for a while.
