At 45,000 miles the ball joints and wheel bearings went bad, as did the sensor that reads the fuel level. As I would drive down the road the fuel indicator would go from full to empty, and in between. I never knew just how much fuel I had. At 65,000 miles the alternator, windshield wiper motor and thermostat went bad. The check engine indicator comes on whenever feels like it. On a good week it comes on once. The vehicle hesitates horribly when the accelerator pedal is pushed.
My previous Ford took a serious beating, through mudding, and general burnouts, and I never had a serious problem with it. After owning a Chevy SUV, I will never buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
