Don't feel lonely, there, "bfmp"....GM and Chrysler do the same kind of poop.

Don't own a Ford, but I've worked on quite a few.

Re: very poor factory workmanship

This doesn't sound too good!!
I'm planning on trading my 2000 Outback for a Territory???
Are most people happy with their purchase?
Any tips / advice for someone about to buy?

Re: very poor factory workmanship

On the verbal description it sounds bad, but nothing like mine, the finish is all fine and no gaps or problems. However the description is not very detailed and no pictures so I am not sure how to comment.

Every Territory I have seen or been in while buying mine has not had any of the briefly described problems.

Re: very poor factory workmanship

I hate to say that while those things aren't very appealing to you (or me), most people don't notice....all the car makers do that kind of stuff these days.....not much pride in what they make. It's become a normal thing and they have forced us to accept it as such.
