On a side note, did you have hood damage and if so did they fix it or is Ford sending you a new hood?
    @Steve Are you waiting for the same part too? Good luck my friend and yes I'm getting a new hood but I haven't heard any issues about that part - Do you have any info?

    I'm pretty sure it was Ford Customer Service who I called - I do have a rental through the insurance company but after 4 months I'm not sure how much longer that will last...

    I would argue that if the other party is at fault they owe you a car until your's is fixed.

    @tweekzilla , I have always thought this car had a tight engine bay, hard to work on. I guess it's very true. Well since last year was such a mess here's to a better new year. Hope you get every compensation and then some.

    This royally sucks for anybody having to wait that long for parts on a 1st year run vehicle.

    Don't you think the repair shop would eventually charge some sort of storage fee to have your vehicle in their shop for over 4 months? Ouch!

    I would seriously doubt your RS is stuck up on that lift for 4 months. They have other vehicles to work on. Do you think they push it outside each day and bring it back in? That's what they typically do around here.

    Very tight engine bay, I couldn't even reach the battery neutral to help jump start another car!

    This.

    I remember when they started manufacturing they were talking about how it's difficult to stuff the 2.3 into the engine bay.

    That's correct. There's a negative terminal cable bolted to the firewall right next to the battery.
