Summary:

Nice but needs some quality improvement

Faults:

Engine fail safe mode sign flashes out several times while driving and the vehicle quits.

The vehicle used to have comfortable and smooth ride first 5K then became rough and jerky.

General Comments:

Dealer performed a computer reprogramming and so far so good!

Regarding the rough ride, dealer checked the suspension components and told me "Every thing is OK" but I am not convinced!!!

Finely, the car is suitable for families with kids but I blame the Ford engineers for the quality!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
