Ford Motors in Detroit “randomly” selected my brand new car off the assembly line for off road testing: 12.1 mpg after 80 miles... wasnt impressed by that mileage, but whatever.


Drove home (115 miles) and got her up to 16.3mpg so far... now i am happier!












My favorite part about the body color.



More pictures to come later on.

    Evidently they really tested this thing. It drives so much better than my 2004 dodge ram 1500. And it is fast with the twin turbo 3.5l! I love it so far. The color caught my eyes and heart the first time I spotted it, and decided I needed it if I was going to get a new vehicle.

    Congrat's on your new vehicle, I really like the color. Why is the mileage so poor? That is really bad. You said twin turdbo, makes me curious about the mileage.  Hope you enjoy it a lot, and it treats you well. 
     
    I am also wondering what it cost, final cost??

    I am already up to 18mpg now. The factory used it as an off road tester before delivery since it was custom built. It should get even better with time.

    Burgundy Velvet. When it is dark or cloudy it takes on a really dark almost brownish look. When it is sunny, it is a deep burgundy and stunning.

    Side note, the wife found a few stains and a tear in the middle row seats, so the deaership is already looking to replace those, and they forgot to install the roof rail cross bars as well as splash guards, so i get to drive another 250 miles to get all of the taken care of next Saturday.

    You aren't doing a good enough job, I was getting 10-11 MPG in my '15 GT.
     
     
    Congrats on the purchase, BTW!

    I would of pushed for the dealership to take a few thousand dollars off the vehicle price, for them taking it for a joy ride, along with the other issues you found with the vehicle.

    Saturday I will be raising a stink to get it taken care of. I am going to make sure they understand that i am not happy with the thought of the test drive or the issues. I actually was able to speak to the owner of the dealership and will be talking to and trying to work with him as well.

    I am not a mustang fan. I test drove one a while back and didnt like the feeling at all.

    Also, new pictures going into the OP.

    part time 4-wheel drive or All-wheel drive ?
     
    Dual heat & cooling driver/ passenger is what I call a marriage saver on long trips
     
    if the bear was any bigger you'll have to add a sunroof

    Sunroof is over the driver/passenger lol. Moon roof over center seats... the bear is on his own.

    It is part time 4wd. I can set it to be full time, but it mostly runs front wheel only unless I fully engage the throttle, then all 4 lock in right away and it just goes.

    That is exactly what I was thinking when I saw the title. Random fact Devo started in the 1960’s after the Kent State shooting though they are thought of as an 80’s band.

    I really love the color that you got! I've always been a big fan of that metallic maroon red on cars. It's almost got a purple tint to it too. Congrats on the new car and I hope it serves you well for many, many miles!
