honestly mate save your self the hastle. Buy german or japanese. All the faults you have listed are common not to mention a few more. I would buy a bicycle before a ford again! egr,dmf,dpf,injector failure,injector coding,injector pump contamination all things that you will come across in ownership but can be difficult to spot on a test drive and from simply looking at the car, many of them become apparent through ownership and everyday driving. Stay clear is my advice.

Yeah he really is fun.Just because he got a bud one doesn't mean you will.It is a bit scary when you buy a new car,reading lots of good and bad things about them means you just put yourself off instead of going for it.
