View Full Version : 2003 Black Cobra *With Ford Warranty*

11-29-2008, 09:55 PM
Well it's time to sell my car, I've owned it for a year and one month. Bought it with 37-38,000 miles and it currently sits at 40,600. I honestly bought the car and was living in North Carolina, but ended up moving back to Louisiana to finish up school. So the car was bought from a Ford Dealership in Michigan shipped to Winston Salem, NC then shipped again to Baton Rouge, LA. So since I've owned the car it hasn't been driven any long distances. I may have only put a few miles on the car, but I have changed the oil every 2-3 months with Royal Purple or Mobil fully synthetic oil. I had the oasis report from the dealership which stated the car had the "tick" but was fixed under warranty. Also when I received the car it had a leak from the rear end which I got fixed under the warranty also. While in North Carolina I had the car detailed (swirls removed) by a SVTP member (Getblown2k3), he can attest to the condition of the car. Also Screamin Cobra can attest to the cars quality and overall condition(sees the car very often).

**The warranty information will be posted as soon as I get the papers out of the bank. But if i remember correctly the car does have 2 more years of full warranty coverage. So if anything goes wrong, your covered.

Just got the Warranty information
-Ford Extended Extra Care Warranty
-Ends on 10/2/2010 or 74,539

-Oil changed 6 times (2-3 month spans) Oil was not near being dirty when changed each time but I did it due to it running daily.
-Air filter recharged a month ago
-Interior has been taken car with 303 Aerospace, Lexol products
-Exterior has been washed I'd say twice a month with 2 bucket method and Foam gun.
-Wheels were bought used from a local mustang owner(have some curbage not much) Wheels were clay barred and treated with sealant every wash
-I have the pulley cover and it will come with the car.
-Steering creaks, which is widely known, but I have not heard many good things about the local Ford Dealership so I hesitate to bring it to them to repair. If buyer requests, I will let them inspect it or find another local dealer to fix the problem.
-I am having the car professionally detailed again here in Louisiana by a detailer from Autopia.org.(December 6th)

Price: $21,000
