And I'd go as far as to say, as much as it hurts me to say it - It's by far the worst put together and engineered car I've ever owned or driven and a disgrace to Ford.
There has been a few people on this forum with "Lemons" and I'd say this case is the worst I've heard. It's appaling especially for those who have forked out big bucks for premium models to endure this!! If BHTE50 is sworn off Fords for life I wouldn't blame him, I would be too. As a wanna be BA XR owner I'm a bit concerned about these issues to the extent where I'm considering alternatives (and not Holden either) if I'm ever in a position to lash out on a newie.
Having said that my AU XR6 has been fantastic so far after an ED Ghia that fell apart after 150,000k's and an EA Ghia that was the biggest piece of crap I've ever owned.
BHTE50, good luck and when you get rid of the car how about "outing" the bodgie dealer you'd been dealing with?? Be interested to know what you get as a replacement.
