Its Falling Apart

ReviewJust came from the dealership and it needs new ball joints and seals at 55K highway miles. Estimated cost = $600. Dealer said it was a normal "wear" item. Already had paint (black); 4WD control; oil pan; oil sending unit; and seat bolts replaced under warranty. Have not had trouble with brakes -- yet. Has been in the shop in the last 2 1/2 years more than my 7 previous GM trucks/SUV's were in the last 16 years. Will be my last Ford. I am not putting a dime in thise crate after reading what I may be in for in the near term. Doing research on a new vehicle right now.
Best FeaturesGood looks. Does a fairly good job for what it is -- a compromise vehicle.
Worst FeaturesQuality of build. Less "cheap" parts. Even if items are covered by the waranty, it still wastes my time to get the work done.
