Why so many problems with 2011 Mustang

Having a list of problems with my 2011 mustang v6 prem. When I pick up the car new after leaving the dealer my power seat failed started making noise then stop working. Not a problem with the dealer they fixed it, new seat track. Then I started having problems with automatic trans, until they finally solved the problem as bad relays in the trans. After that the leather on seats started to wear, they had to replace the leather top and bottom. When my battery started leaking acid on the garage floor I got really concerned. They had to replace the battery and cable. Just last weekend the power seat failed on the passenger side and the hill decline button on the trans stop working. I also had a noise in the rear end that sounded like a bad bearing but told me my tires are the problem. I do not think I should be having this many problems with just 28835 miles on the car. Anybody else having this many problems?

I have two Mustangs. A 2011 and a 2012. Yes I have a few minor problems with both. But you cant buy a perfect car. When I look at all the good qualities, I soon realize that I can live with the imperfections. Maybe the OP got a lemon. In that case, I sympathise. But all in all , the Mustangs that are built as late, are as good as it gets.
And this is coming from an old school, they don't build them like they used to veteran.
So, OP, if your car is not what you wanted, it is only a car, move on, to something else. It isn't the end of the world. Ive owned quite a few cars in my day. And spent plenty of time and money and time on all of them and in the end, they are only cars.
Anyways, enough preaching. So either enjoy it, or get rid of it.After all, it probably wont be the last car that you own. :smartas

I had a bama tune. After they rebuilt my engine they did a dyno to check the tune and everything was good. My car was just one of the ones that was built in the time that others were who had that problem.
