My neighbour works as a service manager at a Ford dealer and says they get heaps of AUs in for warranty work on IRS diffs. Not sure exactly how many is "heaps" but it must be a significant amount. He says also that other common warranty problems include leaking coolant (usually faulty water pump), premature failure of aircon compressors and noisy front suspension.
He used to work at a Nissan dealer before Ford and reckons there were heaps less problems with them. He is not really a "car" person in the sense like we are here, it's just a job to him, so I don't really see him being biased for or against any particular brand of car. He drives an old Sigma.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
