It's one thing to engage social media; it's an entirely different to actually follow through with a TSB and/or ensure clear communication to the dealer network that owners rely upon.
The way I look at it, is if they don't follow up and through with a proven fix (after a bit of driving) then our responsibility as owners is to seek legal council and make this a Class action suit... I doubt Ford wants that much Negative Attention for their best selling vehicle.

I put 100 hard miles on the car today, and things are still sounding solid and tight. Hit every kind of road there was; highway, backroad, 2-lane road, smooth pavement, rough pavement, etc. Drove great.
Sweet dude, keep on it and let us know... so far so good...
