I get a knocking sound leaving my driveway that I've dealt with since about 3000 miles. I added sway bars thinking it would help but all I did was give the dealer shmucks something to blame.
I think the biggest difference between the domestic crowd and imports is that if you buy a domestic, you pretty much spend most of your time and $$ fixing the weaknesses, and replacing OEM parts as opposed to imports that are over engineered, it becomes paninfully obvious that ford's engineering team only focuses on the bottom line instead of the execution of a proper car. Don't get me started on the ineptitude of the dealership network. Ford should be ashamed.
