Miss it but good thing I traded it in...

I traded mine in awhile back for an AWD Escape. Iím in the Fort Drum area. I remember Fuccillo had a couple 2017 Escapes with the 1.5 dropped for cylinder issues. They were on the lift waiting for new engines.

It's a d-mn shame on Ford at how many still nice cars are going to be lying around like that in the future................things like the attitude they have about it now are why I'm done with Ford pretty much for good. The dropping of true cars is simply part of how they plan on dealing with the issues and that tells you you are getting stiffed again on the other end too. I'd bet anyone buying one in the last couple years will not be getting the normal lifespan expectancy of spare parts at all, you will be lucky to see 5 years of parts before NLA there. The last people will be getting excuses like 'we'd give you a new clutch or trans but we're fresh out of them'.

With the forward looking in this country now limited to the next tweet, I'm thinking the next fuel crisis is only minutes away..........that'll rock their world.

yeah I wouldn't buy a Ford product again I actually have to take my Fiesta ST in next week to hopefully start the process of some paint work.
I have paint peeling off on the hatch. Many people are having paint bubble corrosion issues.

Wow, like you mentioned must be the corrosion issues is weather related via your area, saltwater. I've worked in a Ford b/s since '02 & find the factory paint is fairly good. Yea I can & have done better then the factory, but we had to match the factory standards. My oldest daughters Mustang is stored at my house to cut down on the all the saltwater from the ocean, since she lives right on the ocean, btw she's been driving a old Volvo which actually works great. She doesn't want to drive a Jeep as I mentioned, thats what I have living there.

Nope it's all over the country some of these cars are only a year old.
I'm not going to post other people pictures on this site, because they are not mine but they are all over the Fiesta ST site.
Some of these cars are literally eating themselves from the inside out. A couple of people actually got Ford to buy back the car through lawyers.
One guy in particular is getting screwed over right now they repainted his hood and the color match is 10 shades of orange off.
The pictures I posted are my peeling paint.
It has 9,000 miles and lives in a garage. Never been through a car washing machine, never been touched by a pressure washer.

The worst definitely seems to come from the cars that are assembled in Mexico.
