In May of 2015 my 2005 Ford GT turned over 27,000 miles. The car continued to perform almost flawlessly. Almost.
Unfortunately the recurring gauge failure theme returned again in 2015, this time manifesting as a broken tachometer. Other minor issues included a broken engine vent stud, which I had literally band-aided using a piece of tape to keep it from vibrating and further hurting itself. The windshield had also been cracked, again, by an errant extension cord swinging into it when the GT was parked in my garage. Don’t ask.
Regardless, after 27,000 miles my Ford GT still ran great and looked great, but a list of minor issues continued to build. Another visit with the Ford GT Guys was in order and, thankfully, would happen soon.
