I've got all sorts of fit and finish issues with mine:

1) hood-to-headlight gap inconsistent - the hood actually sits on the headlight on one side (there's no gap at all).

2) trunk lid not centered - though in Ford's defense, the vast majority I've seen look like that so I blend in with everyone else.

3) rear passenger door sticks out where it meets the c-pillar window causing an unsightly gap. Also the glossy black trim panels between the passenger front and rear doors don't align at the top - looks sloppy.

4) forward top dash panel isn't flush with the drivers-side a-pillar cover - there's a hole there.

On the plus side - no leaks anywhere. Which is why I don't really want my dealer messing with the trunk or the rear passenger door alignment.
