    The entire infotainment system is slowly crapping the bed. Everyday its a little worse.

    Yesterday the GPS was showing me drive on wrong streets, driving through fields and buildings. It's making me miss the old SYNC system in my 14 ST.

    Other than that, I can't really complain about the car.

    How does a wheel stud come off?

    Seat fix is a $2 dyi..don't think Ford even has a solution. If worried get an extended Ford warranty...they ate very affordable...but do it before oem warranty expires.

    Check the interior for any kind of rattles around trip pieces. A and B pillar trim, dash etc. Easy things to fix when you have a warranty as dealers usually won't give you any hassle, they just replace. I just had my A pillar trim replaced because it rattled ever so when pulling away in first gear. I'm sure the Mountune RMM exasperated the vibration but one of the clips was also broke.

    2 PTU seals, seat fix, and some rattles.
    If you buy one, drive it hard. Because thrills like these don’t happen often.

    Yes, plus one on the leaks! Take the undertray off and take a look under the car yourself. If you find any leaks take photos and bring them to the dealer. You never know if the regular old oil change tech will see the small leaks or know where to look.

    I just bought an 8yr/100k ESP so I dont have to worry. I had them handle any TSBs that were posted but I dont have any real concerns at the moment.
