Sorry about your car but could have been a rock if they had to actually replace it, which isn't their fault or a build quality issue. If it was just leaking like from a coolant hose they wouldn't replace the whole radiator. And At least its fixed so you can enjoy driving it again.
I would agree that most foci are problem free but with mine I gave Ford a pass with the first coolant issue. (Crank is some plastic piece on the divers side of the engine) Now a crack in the radiator on the bottom right corner.

I know it was hypothetical, but I don't buy it was a rock that cracked it for two reasons. First they fixed it under warranty with no questions asked and second the crack was on a spot that was well protected by the bumper and dust shield.

I appreciate the comment though!
