Well, isn't this just peachy.

Over the winter I had the car trailered to the dealer to do the clutch, front suspension and axle tsbs prior to the warranty running out. At the same time I had 3.73s, FRPP diff cover, adj. panhard and a MGW shifter installed. Last week the weather finally cleared up enough to take it out and see how it would do.

 

Bottom line is, it's terrible! The rear end sounds like he forgot to put oil in it, the clutch has an awful vibration that shakes the whole car, the suspension creaks and moans and every gear change "crunches" into gear.

 

Now what? Do I take back to same dealer or try to find someone else that actually knows what they are doing? The dealer I went to is the largest and supposedly the most "performance oriented" in central Indiana. Suggestions?

Shelbyville,

 

This stinks. Call the dealer you took it to and have him pull the records. Your milage should be recorded so he can see that it has been put up for the winter. A reputable shop will fix your problems.

I feel for you and while not as serious as yours I've had multiple problems with the service I've received on my 09 GT500 from the local dealer. With so many issues I think you really have to try getting the dealer to fix the current problems first otherwise your going to be into a hefty bill while someone else explores and fixes the issues. Once the car is running well I would source out a local independent workshop to take care of your car. I have reached the point where unless it's a recall I have everything done by a performance specialist workshop that I now trust to do a good job. Good luck and let us know how it progresses.
