Review
We're 3 months from end of 3 year lease and want to return it now; 38000 mi, leased at 15000/year. Broke again last week. $2 spark plug, $167 fix; took vehicle into leasing dealership every scheduled maintainence. Ford replaced entire transmission; leaving a parking lot, transmission died. mechanics found lots of "ground up metal"; they've replaced steering column twice, most of the front suspension twice, plus an innumerable HOST of "minor" problems (rear heater control died, mechanic said "due to some bare wires"). The rear window has a low frequency rattle; the steering now has a dead spot after they "fixed" it twice. After 35 years, I've bought my last Ford.
Favorite Features
Double sliding power doors, except half the time when you pull on the handle they refuse to move.
Suggested Improvements
Start from scratch, fire every Ford engineer and replace with either with Honda or Toyota engineers, or with BMW / Mercedes engineers.
