I bought a very well equipped SEL back in May 2012.
The transmission is rough, the mileage is a disappointment and the Sync Info-tainment system flakes out at least 3-5 time a week.
I have had it to two different Ford dealers with only a slight improvement with the transmission, and took a small hit in mileage to improve the shifting.
It has been almost 20 years since I bought a Ford, and it will be another 20 before I buy another one.
Sound system sounds great.
Good looking car, a significant upgrade to the previous model.
