Purchased As Used
I've owned a SHO for over two years now and am close to dumping it. Car has a lot of quirks for something that was expensive and supposed to be "luxury." I think it looks sporty and overall it is fast with a lot of features. That's the good news.
But if you are thinking about getting one PLEASE search online re: SHO and transmission issues, lack of power, etc. Hardly a day goes by when I don't hit the gas only to have nothing happen for several seconds. Other times it feels like it has 50 hp. Other times I just get a loud clunk. There's repair bulletins for this but guess what my local ford dealer couldn't replicate these intermittent issues and would not fix it. So I am done. Other problems include: rear sunshade motor broke (was repaired), blind spot monitors come on when nothing is there (not repaired despite several mentions to dealer), and more.
I could go on and on but the car doesn't strike me as well made and the dealer experience is REALLY lacking. If you are pricing this car you could easily get into a real luxury brand and you will probably end up disappointed with Ford. I am.
