Default Saleen warranty & company finances?

There are several articles concerning Saleen and bad financials, even mentioning bankruptcy. Any news on that and what warranty would we have left with Ford if this comes to pass?

No different than what happened in 2009 and 2010.

Worst case: Specific conversion equipment will be on the owner to find replacement parts and cover costs. The untouched Ford equipment is covered for the duration of the Ford warranty program.

Worst worst case: Vehicle can become a lemon buy-back through FMC with a forced hand and legal fees.

Plus side: For 2011-2014 Saleen Mustangs. Only the styling and appearance items are Saleen specific. All performance equipment were supplied by outside manufactures that sell over-the-counter.

Unlike the 2005-2009 Saleen Mustangs... which had a number for Saleen engineered and exclusive items that could not be purchased over-the-counter elsewhere.

There is not much on a White or Yellow Label that cannot be replaced or repaired through alternative means.

Do you know where I can get a list of the parts/manufacture? I also worry that if there is a warranty issue that Ford could just say it was due to the Saleen mods and they need to cover it. Maybe I just worry too much about stuff. I already have a couple of Saleen cosmetic warranty issues that I cannot get them to return calls to my local Ford dealer about.

Saleen's are sold Pre-title, not Post Title. Meaning, the modifications were done prior to the car being sold. At least in CA, this means the Lemon Law applies. However since the '10+ cars were made on a dealership allocation and not a Ford allocation, that may hinder Ford's liability. I would inquire with your State's Attorney office should the need arise.

But lets hope the legacy continues and none of this matters!
