Several minor paint flaws; the dealership is getting right on those under warranty. The rear passenger side door was hung visibly too high and misaligned. Ditto on dealership/warranty repair there. Makes one wish the Wayne plant had quality control to match the Hermosillo plant that built my rock-solid Escort.

No other problems of note, if you don't count the strange behavior SYNC has when shuffling "artist" and "genre"-based play requests. Since SYNC was programmed by Microsoft and not Apple, what else would you expect?

Update: Just got off the phone with the dealer. My service rep says the car won't be finished until July 6th because they're waiting for a new center stack dash panel needed to fix a hair in the paint surface of the original. He also told me that the body paint warranty cost that Ford has to eat is $4,300! "I guess that one slipped through at the paint line QC check." I guess!! There goes Ford's profit on three or so Foci!
