Understand about the tire noise which sounds like a bad bearing. I got this car because it was a much better, quieter ride than the imports(Honda, Toyota). That lasted about 14,000mi. till those Pirelli P Zero Nero's started making noise. Have 20,000mi now and they just keep getting louder. Rotating tires and keeping correct pressure does not help.

Other than that, car is still a pleasure to drive.

First time I heard the P-zero referred to as a starter tire. It is reputed to be a quality tire. What do you suggest is a longer life/higher quality all season?

I agree that it is a quality tire. They are very sticky when new, but since those tires are made with relatively soft rubber (which is why they are nice and sticky,) I only get 9K to 14K miles out of a set, depending on how much canyon driving I do. (That's why I congratulated you.)

I'm not suggesting any tire to anyone. Everybody drives differently and has different needs. The Hankooks I replaced my Pirelli's with only have a 200 treadwear rating, so they'll need replacing soon too. Tires with higher treadware ratings, like 500, will be more expensive, but might be a better value.

I have not yet tried Michelin SuperSports, but it sounds like a lot of people on this forum like them a lot.

Let's see. New ring and pinion and related bearings (problems are back but haven't gone to the dealer yet), lower control arms replaced, shaky driver side rear view mirror (dealer claims ford won't warranty the fix), random rattles in the passenger door that I fixed, passenger seat pleats are coming up.
Car is a blast to drive. Sounds amazing and I still get lots of compliments. All these issues, small and large, on top of having to debate with the dealer every time I've gone in will probably keep me from buying another ford; at least as a daily driver.

I wonder if the leaky battery was cause or symptom for all your electrical problems...if the car was running on too low of voltage and stressing or constantly resetting the computers. Electrical problems are the worst.

Your service manager is in the best position to look into this for you, JRizzo. He will be able to provide available options and/or coverage for any work needed.
