Clutch pedal skeak. Weather stripping on top of windows. Repaced once under warranty a moth ago and same window is jacked up again. A few squeaks. Goofy feeling cluth pedal sometimes. Firmness varies sometimes dosen't come all the way back up. And oem tires wore out way to fast and unevenly (26k mi). Taking it back to dealer to address exsisting issues. Over all very happy.

One more thing. 4 months to the day after I bought it. Went to leave my buddys house and it wouldn't start. Acted like I didn't press the clutch pedal. After a little looking around noticed that the clutch saftey switch had gotten disconected. Extra weird since it had to be unclipped then slid up about an inch to do so. Put it back together and zip tied it in place. No problems since.

Right now when i attempt to start sometimes it likes to take a second like its not sparking or getting fuel. Also when i try to just go into first or any gear its hard to do.

Too many problems to list. Just silly stuff that adds up to a lot of money for a single mother like me. Indicator in shift stuck, passenger door does not lock, key sticks in ignition in cold weather, lights come on randomly indicating problem with car but then flash off again, brakes replaced, a lot of tires gone through because of uneven wear, gas pedal sticks and today the last straw - I was driving to the dealer in a rainstorm to have him look at my gas pedal which stuck yesterday,and my wipers just about flew off of my car. He says there is nothing wrong with my gas pedal - baloney there isn't - and it will cost me $500.00 to replace wiper pivot tomorrow because he didn't have one in stock. This car handles beautifully and has been a pleasure to drive but all of this poor craftsmanship has drained me financially so I will never buy another Ford - this after owning four before this one. The wipers were just the coup de gras for me. Hate to see winter come because this car is horrible driving on snow and ice and has many anomalies in the winter.
