With the oncoming traffic clearly a dangerous situation. This is an unsatisfactory situation and I am amazed that Ford is letting these come out of factory like this. Trip to the dealer coming but going to need a definitive solution to this.
Hi gpinnell,

Welcome to the forum! Scheduling an appointment with the dealer is the perfect first step. Please PM me your info as well (VIN, contact information, mileage, & servicing dealer name/state) and I'll help.

I look forward to hearing from you.
