So the ignition cylinder locked up on my car today. Apparently after reading through some of the threads on this, it is a common problem on the 1st gen's. The Ford dealership in my town will replace it for $200. If you want it fixed cheaper you can buy this: -- Part # - SW6285 -- $76.79 and fix it yourself. Or if you want it cheaper than that and if you have roadside assistance on your policy, you can have a locksmith do it(the locksmith that I am using is charging me $95) and have you insurance reimburse you.

So I am having it fixed for free, the best part is that I don't have to wait to get the rockauto part in the mail.
