Tires wailing at 62-66 mph. Dealer found issue with two of 4 OEM tires. Dealer asked Ford to replace all 4 since the OEM tire is no longer in production, Ford said go ahead. 4 New tires installed. Creak from driver's door panel. Dealer could not replicate. Owner found later that issue was in a different location in panel then told to dealer and occurs during 80+ degree weather. Owner will attempt repair with new info at next service. Front tires cupped badly, alignment was near perfect. Replaced all 4 tires with a new version...old one discontinued (Pirelli)

Brought the car in for a creaking sound when the wheel was turned to the left. Dealer diagnosed a failing front drivers side control arm. They ordered a replacement, which they determined to also be faulty before returning the car to me, so they ordered another. Upon its install, they determined the rear passenger side control arm was experiencing the same issue and replaced it too. All covered under factory warranty, no issues since I picked the car up from them.

Replaced driver-side puddle lamp. Blocking foil / whatever defined the silhouette was 100% disintegrated, only showed a blob on ground rather than mustang logo. Repair calls for full replacement of the bulb assembly, the cover or shroud alone is non-serviceable. Research shows this is a common issue, and it was present upon purchase (~9500mi). Supposedly the part has been re-engineered to last longer... we will see.
