The dealership had installed an aftermarket rear spoiler on the vehicle without disclosing this information. After having problems with the third brake light in the spoiler in learned it was not a factory part. The dealership stated to me that it was factory. I was not able to get the part replaced until I called Ford directly and threatened to sue the dealership for fraud.
