Well, I just rolled 36,200 no more warranty :-(

so far only a passenger side window died, they replaced the switch...
oil changes, tire rotattions and last oil change I put a new air filter in...
I had to replace a tire (road hazard-long story not covered)

but factory oem conti's still good & running smooth.

knock on wood... planning on going to 200K

my old Civic hybrid is going strong at 200K ( in daughter's hands)
let's see if a Ford can do the same

next oil change due end of May

I'm coming pretty close to the 36K mark myself. I have a few rattles and small things that I want get taken care of before then. Does anybody have any advice on some things to look out for (that may not be obvious at first glance), that would be important to find before the warranty runs up?

Bought mine with 38 on it. Why not get the extended warranty? I did since I'm putting a lot of miles on it.

The big one is the Powertrain, jury is out on the DCT reliability. Judging by all the problems I'm having at 2K miles along with others that have posted similar or worse issues, I would say the 5/60 is going to be a big, what if...for a lot of people.

I am at 8600 miles so I have a long way to go. I know the B2B is 36K but isn't the power train warranty 60K?

The powertrain warranty is 5yr/50K miles I believe (might be 60K). Either way, the transmission is still under warranty even though other things aren't.
