It's not about losing mpg. It's about losing warranty.

That's my thoughts too. They aren't going to find out anything new on the old parts, so save the shipping costs and call it good.

As far as the parts go all you have to do ask to save them otherwise they just get pitched.
Funny how this all works out. I got BS'd buy two different dealers at the start of this recall and was refused by the dealers to perform the recall because I asked for pictures of the parts, Dodge revoked my warrantee due to all this and said I had no right to see the parts. I cant wait to pay this car off and publicly crush it or have a charity drive where anyone can take a swing at it for $1. Probably raise a million at a big Mustang show, then maybe I can buy a car with a better service program.

I'm guessing it was because they wanted samplings of the wear on the parts.

Lord Warlock They kept mine for a day, dropped it off at my appointment time, picked it up next day, they did not provide me a loaner car. it took longer than the 4 hours allotted to do the job, as they got it together and the timing was off so had to redo that part.

So back to my original question, what's the average length of time the car will be down? Have most been given a loaner car?

Also, when does MDS engage for you guys? I have an early '09 build (sept '08), and MDS only engages when above 60 or so..just curious if the programming was different afterwards.
