There was a noise in the front end when we bought the car used at 55,000. After taking it to two shops they replaced the stabilizer bars and struts. This was $850! the noise was still there and it had to go back. They said they contacted Ford and were told to do it again. This fixed the noise.
The regulater in the rear door was replaced twice and the drivers side once. Each occurence costs $225.
There is an oil smell in the cabin when the climate control is on. There is no evidence of oil leak and the source is unknown.
The brake job was at a higher cost than expected. $360 and no rotors had to be replaced.
You take it in for an oil change at a fast oil change place and they don't have the correct filter as it is about $10 just for the filter. We take our own in (for an additional fee).
The rear defroster has quit and it requires a glass replacement to fix. The quoted price is $1200.
The rear view mirror became loose and needed to be tightened. This used to be simple with only an alen wrench. Well on this car all the climate control and other scensors are located there so it was taken to a shop. The rivets were wore out and the replacement was over $400. We glued it with some JB weld. This costs $85.
The stereo ate a CD and it shattered in the stereo which has a 6 disk changer built in. The dealer took it out and sent it off. It needed to be cleaned out and reset. This costs $425.
