Suss, you mean well but too many words man. I can see where allyy is coming from, my shudder issue developed after several hundred miles. No test drive would've revealed it and once it was revealed I was stuck with the car.
Most of you persist that this is strictly a Perception issue. It's not in every case. Allyy may have a real issue that Ford is continually failing to fix. Though it's clear after the latest update that he's in the small minority now.
