We have had a couple mornings down around 30F, we'll see how things go once it gets down to -20F this winter. Might have to leave the car out one of those nights and see how it goes.

3 months, 4k, No problems! I've spent more on cosmetic mods and tweaks of personal nature than gas. I grew up driving a '69 Mach I and I'm thinking I like this '12 FoFo at least as much.
I think my wife regrets how well it corners...<G>

Now that cold weather has returned, can verify that update has corrected problem.

As of tomorrow evening I will have owned my 2012 FF SE sedan for one month and I can honestly say that I've had absolutely no problems with it. It just hit 1K today. I was kind of worried about it after reading some of the horror stories posted on this site, but so far it's been a blast to drive. The gas mileage is great too!

Hopefully I'm not jinxing myself...

Going on 5 months with 3600 miles. Runs good and rides great. Has even shown 40 mpg on the screen. I'm happy with my first Ford.
