UPDATE
Finally got the GT home. Brake line replace. I actually crawled under to verify. Covered under warranty. Thanks to all the encouraging comments. Its a little unsettling spending that kinda of money and have serious problem on your maiden voyage!

Charlie, sounds like you got a good service center there. When I went to get ours last night, no one was even sure it was done. lol

Stayed tuned!

Glad to hear your problem got resolved. Yes I'm fortunate that Al Packer's Techs were able to turn it around quickly. I actually saw them driving my RV the day after I took it to them. The rear didn't fail until after I picked it up. I noticed a different sound in the transmission. They were trying to find it and as usual, it didn't show up. They tested it every way possible and it didn't make the noise. I picked it up after work, hooked my car to the hitch and was heading home. Got about 6 miles away and all went to pieces with a loud bang and the rear was shearing off teeth. Fortunately there was a turn lane for me to coast into. Called Ford and they had it towed back to Packer Ford and they took care of it from there. Their communication was great and they apologized numerous times and did a free oil change for not finding the cause. The only problem was there wasn't anything to go on, unless they would have started taking the thing apart. I noticed a whining noise in the transmission, not severe, but it wasn't something I heard before. Once the rear failed and was replaced the noise in transmission was gone and it's quieter than the day we picked it up from the dealership where we bought it.
