Windshield wipers failed to work. Cost nearly $500 for the repair of a defect in the wiper system.
Rear window unexpectedly broke due to cold weather, so another $250 for replacement of the defective window glass.
Engine light always on. Dealer claims it is a normal problem due to a defective gas cap. This after replacement and over $100 later.
Coolant leak due to a very poor design of the cooling system (running a tube through the manifold system). That was another $525 to fix.
Front spring broke while driving with absolutely no indication anything was wrong. Don't have cost for the spring fix, as I don't know what the total extent of damage is, or how much it will cost.
This is THE worst vehicle I have EVER had. There are many little things wrong with it that just annoy the heck out of me as well. I have always stayed away from Ford, but thought this one looked like it might be a good vehicle. Boy was I wrong. Due to the local dealer being downright rude and a bit nasty, I will NEVER, EVER buy another Ford of any kind again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
