Found one somewhat local and may be checking it out tomorrow. I've done some quick searches but hoping somebody can chime in with any concerns I should be aware of with a 2016 SHO, anything to look for in terms of replaced parts, leaks, vibrations, etc. Have had a 98 since 2000 and though still running and having recently been to FPS, it's not in the best shape and still needs considerable TLC in the form of large sums of money if I intend on trying to get to classic status . . .

Thanks

Same issues as 2013 and up....if it has rear window shade make sure it works, test every single heat and cooling setting (blend doors like to go bad), check underside of motor and trans if you can for leaky fluids. Just typical used car stuff.

What @ridered74 said. Also just like other used cars the higher the mileage the more larger potentially costly repairs may crop up. I might add the biggest danger, if you plan to modify it, it can empty your wallet about a fast as it can do a 1/4 mile :burnout:

I have a 2016 sho. I love the car. Only issue is at 60000 miles I had the steering rack replaced. Which was 2800 dollars.

I bought a 2016 at the end of May after my 2014 got totaled, Both cars were always great and I had no repair cost on either one. I do understand your worry when buying a used car as the wonder what could be wrong or starting to go bad. I think it's a reasonable concern that everyone has at the time of buying any vehicle. Also on a positive note, I am an auto mechanic for a living and I rarely see problems with Fords vs other makes and models.

Thanks for the feedback! My son tells me that there were significant improvements and issues resolved for the 2016 model year SHO. Can anybody elaborate on this? Just so happens that now a 2015 has come up on the radar for sale. They both look so nice - I WANT 'EM BOTH!!! LOL

They did engine improvements. In the 2016 they started using some of the engine components that they used on the 3.5 raptor truck. Stronger components.

The biggest improvement for 2016 over the 2015 is the Sync 3 replaced My Ford Touch. For that reason alone I would go for a 2016 or newer.

Please tell me how it's only $250. I have a 2014 and every where I have read is that it's like $1000 just for the hard wear.
If you are serious, send me a PM and I can go through all the link/sites. I just helped someone else and they scored the APIM and Screen for $65. These are the most expensive parts. I think I paid $125 including shipping. Add an adapter harness, USB Hub and a GPS antenna and you are in business.

I thought it had to be programmed to the car, I have a 2015 with factory navigation
I would love to have CarPlay where it looked it was $1300-$1500 and they say it comes programmed to my PIN number

In order to have all of the options that match your vehicle you either have to find one that matches or "program" it. It is easy to fo with ForScan which a lot of people have anyways. It is a simple adapter and a free software (you can pay for the lifetime or keep renewing your free 2 months). Both of mine were fully loaded 2015 with navigation. I installed Sync3 from a 2019 fully loaded and it powered right up. Only issue I have had is the cheapy GPS antenna I bought doesn't always work but, I rarely use the factory Navigation since I have Android Auto.
