Well my car is still in the shop but it's for a good reason this time. They finally realized that there is a wide spread issue with the hoses blowing up, so they made a NEW hose and 37 of them went out yesterday!!! I will be getting one of those. After those are gone they will be on back order until the 15th of this month or next month (sorry I forget which month).

Wow man thats crazy. I am here at work after JUST picking up my car for the same issue. I had my high pressure hose replaced, it was at the dealer for about a week. I just hope I have one of the "newer" hoses man.

Good lookin, Hunter!

Wow, I didnt realize this was a widespread problem. My car is at the dealership now (has been since last Wednesday). My high pressure hose "was melted" when a tech at my lube center pushed it up into the exhaust or engine??? Anyway thats what the dealership said after I told them that it had been to the lube center the day the hose blew.
NAYBE, once again my delaership is just trying to pull a fast one...

Oh well, they called to tell me that the hose had come in, and that the over the counter cost was $150. And it would take two hours to install. It should be done by the end of the day.

I had spoken to SVT, the guy said he hadn't heard of any new parts, but that they did have a quality assurance problem which they corrected by changing the way the part was installed. go figure.

they said if i knew anyone with the same person to have them call SVT

Well he didn't look hard enough. They got the new one on for me and everything is all good now. I know they didn't lie to me cause my best friend was the one who did it.
