My biggest gripe with this vehicle is the performance of the AccuTrack stability control. This will activate randomly when in right hand sweeping corners - without braking, or excessive speed. The result is that the car lurches to the left as stability control kicks in - very alarming when it occurs. I solve this by disabling the AccuTrack when on long journeys (achieved by pressing the dash button for one second). I understand that this problem will be fixed by loading "de-sensitised" software and a modified gyroscope sensor. Ford will advise once the fix is available.
I am one of four Territory drivers based in Napier, NZ who are complaining of this problem.
Since taking delivery of the vehicle in March 2005, I have driven 40,000km and find it a comfortable vehicle to travel the long journeys that I take.
The fuel consumption on 91 octane is around 14 litres / 100 km. I suppose that's the price you pay for driving a heavy and large vehicle.
