At 800 miles, the front rotors warped. They had to be remachined. At 13,000 miles the front rotors warped again. The dealer and Ford Motor Company refused to fix the problem. At 55 miles an hour the steering wheel shakes. When you make a turn the steering wheel shakes more. At highway driving, when you make a turn or change lanes, the steering is hard to control.

Was having problem with the brakes. Took vehicle to dealer & told that rotors & pads were worn excessively. They needed replacing. Passenger front was worse. The other 3 were warped.
