Hi, the car has only 10000ks on the clock. NZ new looks mint and according to the car dealer has been recalled. The car has had 4 owners, the 1st for 33mths, the 2nd and 3rd for 2mths each and the 4th for the remainder. Should I be concerned by number of owners?

I’d stay away if the car is modded or if it doesn’t have an active warranty. My 2016 ended up needing a new engine (luckily I extended the warranty). It also has some other minor problems which were all covered under warranty.

Head gasket recall was done 2 years before the engine blew. Ford told me it spun a rod bearing, luckily warranty got me a new long block (36 days of no RS). I did oil changes at the dealer every 3-4k. Maintained it religiously but definitely used it
