On a positive note, I would like to hear from those that have no mechanical problems or noises or grinds or slaps.

Bullitt#344, knock on wood, has not had any mechanical problems or paint problems. She has 10,000 miles on her now. I hope she never does have any of these documented problems I am hearing about, but if she does, I sure hope it is while the warranty is good. I think this spring we will take a ride down to Ford and take a look at that extended warranty offer... :smile:

" SO FAR SO GOOD " as Stan Laurel said to Oliver Hardy in March of the Wooden Soldiers. Although for Black Bullitt # 2627 it hasn't been so far yet because I have very little mileage on the car since I bought it last August...>but NO Problems at all to report.

I have almost 9000 miles on mine and nothing to report not even a door ding. Well, on occasion the brakes squeak a bit, but that's it.

No problems of any kind for #0910! I feel fortunate and at least know what to look and listen for. Like ANY other vehicle, Bullitts are not exemp from some problems.

No problems or noises here either... but have only 1500 miles. Will be listening closely when I take the car out of storage in the spring. I was watching and listening all summer and fall for the dreaded noises but could not detect any.

04165 has had the spotted headlamps and a scratched LF caliper replaced, as well as the crooked BULLITT decklid logo replaced (twice) but that's it. So far (knock on wood) I've only experienced the squeeky brakes (that's a hot rod though :roll ). I could have the pisotn slap problem, but I dont' know, because I don't take it above 3000 until its up to operating tempI'm going to get the water pump and pully replaced before the rainy season here. I will also try and get some paint damage, from typical CO winter driving conditions, repaired (I moved to FL at Christmas). Hopefully the body shop guys won't recognize light damage from road sand and magnesium chloride around the wheel openings and front bumper and also on the scoops. We'll see.

All and all, less problems than with my last new vehicle and as few as I've seen of any new car.

5203 is fine. No problems or noises out of the engine, clutch, transmission, rear end or brakes. We use it as a daily driver and it now has a little over 7,000 miles on the odometer. I do have a wind whistle between 40 and 70 on the drivers window but compared to some of the problems I have seen here in the forum that is a very minor issue. Even the paint is reak good.

Even after 3175 hit a car that ran a red light which caused the air bags to go off and bend the frame, I still have no problems. The body shop repair was great and the car runs like a dream. I have found that it is one tough car. Very happy with it.

Flawless paint job, no noises whatsoever, anywhere. But, from another viewpoint on the dreaded engine noise, I wouldn't know if mine has it or not when cold. I never, ever rev my engine above 2,000 RPM for the first 3 or 4 minutes of operation. Your engine will live longer and you'll be a happier owner over the long haul.
PS: I don't count the slightly notchy 1-2 cold shift as a problem. We all get that it seems.

Me too! No problems other then I feather the 1-2 shift until the tranny fluid warms up. I also was taught to baby the car until the engine oil (not coolant) is warmed up. I'm a little surprised to see these guys posting with engine knocks between 3 and 4k when the engine's cold. I never rev that high with a cold engine and I bet I don't get the engine rattle either. I'm changing the tranny fluid this spring which is supposed to alleviate that minor problem.

It's not the first 3 or 4 minutes.
It's at least 10 full minutes after the heater has warmed the car to the point I can turn it off. It's also well after the temp needle has move into the normal operating range.

The advice "you shouldn't run any engine to 3000 before it's warm" doesn't hold water here.

DHG 3946 just turned 5700 miles (daily driver even in rain). Minor spots on headlights which I can live with and other than this, this Bullitt has been great!
