Hate to be the one to bring this up. But as an owner of a 14" ST with 26k miles, I gotta say I'm pretty disappointed. Not that the car does not perform well, but I have had to take it to the dealer several times for repairs... Items replaced on my ST so far... Fuel tank, fuel inlet tube, left side CV axle, sound symposer, both door pillar speakers, clutch return spring, driver mirror motor, rear seat mounting brackets, one rear hatch shock, and had to have rear right bodyside fender well refinished due to overspray from factory causing an unsettled defect in the finish which in turn "broke" off and exposed the bare metal creating a possible "rust situation". Sigh... I am a Ford employee, and I am treated well there, so as long as I am under warranty I will continue to stand by my companies products, but any issues after warranty are going to hinder my faith in the quality of Ford vehicles... And for the record... I am not at all connected with quality control at Ford, I am material handling and am only responsible for moving shit from point A to point B!
