A total LEMON
I have replaced the rotors twice.
I have replaced a $300+ sensor relay chip.
The tensioner seized on the highway and snapped my drive belt causing my car to overheat.
The overflow tank for anti-freeze/coolant fluid split open and I lost most of my coolant.
A switch had to be replaced in the transmission when the car started to shift hard into gear.
The air conditioning compressor is shot.
The cigarette lighter fuse blows regularly.
The brake light comes on regularly even though I have the proper amount of brake fluid in the car.
The car starts to shake at higher speeds (110 km+). I have had two wheel balancing and two wheel alignments and it still does it.
The brakes still squeak even though the brakes in the front have been replaced twice and in the back once.
The front wheel hub assemblies have been replaced once and are on the way out again.
The car has refused to start on a number of occasions because of the fuel pump switch.
My power steering pump is on its way out.
My temperature gauge read hot then drops to cold on a regular basis.
My airbag light stays on for quite a while.
My trunk leaks and now smells mouldy.
My car won`t engage into gear as of this morning. The gear shifter just slides from park to first gear.
When the car actually runs, it handles very well.
However I now understand why people talk about Fords being a "fix or repair daily" and "found on road dead" kind of car.
I will never by another ford as long as I live!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
