The head gasket failed requiring a complete rebuild of the 3.8 engine at 79,000 miles.
The AC compressor failed.
An engine mount broke.
The automatic transmission case cracked and had to be replaced.
The radiator blew out and was replaced.
The most expensive car I have ever owned from a repair standpoint. I do not plan to buy another Ford product. I have had other makes: GM, Honda, VW, Toyota, and BMW. Never have I had so many expensive problems with one car. I could not get the zone manager to even call me to discuss several problems. This is AFTER I explained to the Ford dealer that this did not give me much incentive to buy another Ford product.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
