Ford tried to tell me this happened do to abusive driving. They tried not to pay for repair but since I followed Oil change schedule and had all records they had To pay for repair I also would like to note I used Mobil #1 5w-30w oil engine was spotless inside I would Like to say this car has had about $ 15,000 in repairs In the last year transmission was last 2 weeks before warranty expired. My concern is this car considered a lemon. I refuse to take it on long trips wondering what might be next. I wonder how many others have Had this many problems with this car I feel ford should buy this car back for what I paid for it I would like to Have an address were I can send copies of complete Service record to help with this case please contact me
