If I could go back and change it, I would. There is absolutely no excuse to have these kind of issues with a brand new car. What good are all these fancy options if they don't work? I work hard for my paychecks. Spending money on something that isn't anywhere near what's being promised...pisses me off.

For the record, I've owned a couple Fords with no issues.

Oh man, that's unfortunate. I'm happy to report, at least as of now, that I am not having any of the issues that you are reporting. My doors don't rattle at all, even at very high volumes. My A/C is fine and MFT hasn't crashed once. I even connected my Cowon MP3 player to it and it indexed all of my music and I was good to go, album art (that I already tagged in my MP3 player) and all.

Now, I've had the car all of 12 hours, so I'm not saying any of these issues won't arise. But I'm very happy so far! The car drives great and sounds great.

Good luck to you, hopefully your issues get resolved.
