Lemon, junk, stay away
When I first purchased the car, it hesitated to start during the first week. I don't remember the explanation the dealer gave me. Something about it adjusting to something. This was my first new car and I was pretty naive.
This problem has reappeared over the years, mainly when the weather is warmer. It runs sluggishly, then after several miles it seems to be fine. Strangely this never happens in the winter.
The thing is, this happened even when the car was very new. I always took it in, but the dealership would say they couldn't find anything, and since it continued to run I didn't worry.
After the warranty ran out, it seemed like I had to have a repair quarterly. Literally. The month it was paid off and the warranty was over, it just started to fall apart. I've taken it in 3 times this year and it's only June.
This car is a piece of junk. I used to think the bad reputation Ford has was unfair, but now I know. Stay away from Ford.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
