Luckily the seats are 100% leather!

You may be free of the issues, but I suggest you don't let your guard down. Not sure what the lemon law rules are in your state, in Florida it's 2 years from purchase date.

No fabric on the side seat bottoms like the stock ones?

Are your door panels all leather (near the grab handles)?

All leather. On both.

Oh man, that interior is NICE!

I am jealous, wish that was available when I bought mine.

I also hope you don't have the problems others have had because it's a sweet ride when it's working right.

Btw, you're going to hate cleaning those wheels, I certainly dread cleaning mine. A wheel brush helps a lot but it's still a royal pita.

Nice, I hate the cloth in mine, really cheap compared to the rest of the interior being leather, leather wrapped steering wheel but door inserts are lint grabbing cloth that won't hold up too well either.

I'm with you on that. That seems crazy to me.

Judging by your avatar you have the wheels that came on the 2012, the 13's are different and are indeed a PITA to clean. I just cleaned my car today and did the wheels. I use Adam's wheel cleaner and a Mother's wheel brush, works well but brake dust and dirt accumulates quite quickly on these wheels. I also use Adam's Quick Sealant to aid in keeping them clean. I really wish I got the 18" 5 spoke wheels now after the fact, they are a breeze to clean by the looks of it.

I am glad you have that warm and fuzzy feeling, I do not with Ford and there are two Ford's in my garage, not sure if I'll be a repeat customer or if I'll will keep mine in the long term. Sorry, don't want to rain on your parade or anything, it's a nice car aside from the issues I am having.
