Would not recommend anyone buy one; maybe that's why they changed the name of it
Rear brakes due to recall - changed.
Air compressor for A/C had to be changed 5/2010.
Surging forward while my foot is on the brake.
Connector melted in headlights.
Water holding in the frame of the door due to weep hole clogged.
I really loved my car when we bought it new in Aug 06. Leather, sunroof, 6 disk changer, really nice features including the safety ratings, which were the best by far.
Very disappointed that after 4 years, the A/C compressor had to be changed. Living in south LA, we need A/C. $1400 later, I have A/C. Not covered. However, I found out at least 4 or 5 other models, just like mine, had the same problem and only one was given "assistance". She was elderly, so maybe that's why?
Now the car surges when I put my foot on the brake, whether to go forward or in reverse. Technician says the idle needs cleaning for $100, or can be replaced for $600, and the jerking when coming out of park is due to a rubber lining or seal on the motor mount, being worn. None under warranty, 61k. Is this a manufacturing defect???
I LOVE my dealership. However, I will NEVER buy Ford again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
