For a vehicle we mainly drive to and from work and Costco, this so called top of the line gas guzzling beast should not have these kinds of problems at 77,000 miles. Ford should be ashamed. Instead, there is nothing they can do because it's "out of warranty" and they're "sorry you feel" like you were ripped off. No they are not sorry!
None to speak of. Crappy cheap plastic parts scuffs easily and badly. Seat leather is cheap too and only partially wraps around. Air bag cover plate in front of front passenger seat never fit properly. Fit and finish poor. Brakes wheeze. No rain sensing wipers. Only 1 auto up/down window? In fact too many cheap plastic parts.
10 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty like most cheap Korean cars. Hybrid anyone? 11.5 mpg average sucks.
