Seat belt never stays connected ( pops out) all speeds. (5 yrs) I asked dealer about fixing he said my warranty expired buy a new one (Ford does not care about safety after warranty date) the airbag light will stay on for a week then off for a month then repeat ( 5 yrs) door ajar light has never turned off (maybe it will burn out so I don't see it anymore) tailgate latch replaced 3 times ( dang that cheap plastic) front end realigned numerous times (anti nascar, always turns right) engine shudders bad few times a year(bad gas maybe once, others probably not) coil pack replaced twice (im still under 60,000 miles) rear window leaks also :)
