11konablue Posted August 13, 2013 Report Share Posted August 13, 2013 I found a 14 GT500 for sale at a dealer with 1200 mi. Black on Black, I like the LED tail lights and overall appearance of the car, this one was fully equipped minus the glass roof. I took a test drive with the salesman, I noticed the clutch pedal engagement felt strange almost like the pedal is connected to a cam of some sort, it did not feel progressive it had an abrupt engagement near the end of the release, initially when taking off in first gear it seems as it is a little too high geared a lower first gear it seems would be better. The temperature outside was 105 degrees, acceleration on an on ramp the car does not feel very quick, with the car in 3rd gear at 70 same feeling, and I would guess the hot weather takes a lot of power away. I would like to know from people that own one of these your impressions of this car vs 2011 - 2012 , I did a search and found some 13 and 14 models with clutch problems and from the posts it would appear they are not covered by fords powertrain warranty and the parts when replaced need to be original equipment ford factory replacement or it may void the powertrain warranty with aftermarket parts, or when changing gear ratios. I could not find any posts of clutch issues with the 10-11-12 model years. Also the 11-12 models with the SVT performance package the driving experence seems more agile , clutch pedal and clutch engagement seems more precise and the acceleration felt stronger, the temperature outside was 75 degrees.
