So far, it seems the car is solid, the issue here is incompetent mechanics who cannot fix the issue, they are simply patching the problem. An alignment is not a fix for issues like these, most people believe if the car is not driving properly, do an alignment. If you request an alignment, that is what you are going to get. I would get either the steering replaced or take it to a dealership that actually knows what they are doing.

My car has been solid from day one, I recently updated the MFT to 3.5.1 and it has been excellent.
I am glad you enjoyed reading it, it is a long saga unfortunately.

No one is willing to touch the steering rack since it has already been replaced-Especially since it "drives normal" now. I will NOT go back to Bay Ridge Ford (the ones who installed it) AGAIN.

fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice, shame on me.
