It should have never left the factory like that, because you'd think Quality Control might have caught an issue like that. Keep the pressure on Ford.

I had the front struts replaced under warranty because my car would not go into race mode. Picked up the car and the back plate was rubbing on the rotor and the hub had two marks in it. Looks like Ford service took a crowbar to it. I took the car back and they admitted to the marks, but said ?it?s standard and causes no structural damage.? Am I being too picky?

I would make them replace the wheel. That's not acceptable in my book. There are so many ways to get a wheel off that is stuck without using a prybar...geez.

Whenever I have a stuck wheel, I just hit it with another wheel or a 2x4. For example, I changed a flat one time for someone and the flat wheel was stuck. I hit the flat with the donut to break the flat free from the hub.

I would make them replace the rotor. Still rediculous that they couldn't find a better way to remove a stuck wheel...

Yeah, I may end up filling a separate BBB case with the dealer. My BBB corporate agent has filed my paint issues with Ford. They have 14 days to respond to my request for another RS.
