    Yep. I hate it. Leaves too large of a gap between you and the car in front on you, which allows other cars to jump in that gap, which causes your car to slow down abruptly to maintain the separation distance, etc etc.

    I just wish it didn’t have to remind me that it’s off every time, or mostly every time, that I turn on cruise.

    Our UK spec RHD cars do not show oil pressure or temperature. The list of options for the digi dash gauges is different to the USA ones. Really quite poor.

    Adaptive cruise. Smoothly following a car round a corner, the Mustang sees a bus by the side of the road and brakes hard to stay behind the stationary bus.

    Automatic steering. Great fun but scary. Car tells me off for taking my hand off the wheel. Then accuses me of nodding off.

    The lack of oil temp in this type of car really is a miss. Don't have it (at least in Sweden) either.

    #Alignment issues on panels
    #Framing around the windows uneven/ not sitting correctly
    #I have dirt under the paint in some places
    #Imperfections on metal work(looks like small dents)
    #Car was delivered with a paint chip on the passenger side front fender and also on the front passenger door
    #Some rattle from the interior
    #Armrest on the driver door squeking
    #Seat belt "lock/holder" squeaking on driver side
    #Ticking noise from the engine area
    #Clonking noise when putting the car in reverse and slowly starting to back up

    Car has been at the shop for almost three weeks and I have been driving it for 4w........ will retrieve it on monday. The have only taken care of the engine ticking(not sure if solved) and the paint chips.

    No I don't have any luck with any of my cars. Other none Ford related issues with the car we don't have to talk about here. But I have almost had it. Some cars are prone to having issues no matter what from start to beginning.

    That either sounds like a Tesla nightmare, or perhaps too much time down the pub...

    I'm a 16 owner and i'm noticing 18 owners are having issues with these cars that shouldn't be happening. Its shocking. A refresh of an already good platform is suppose to make the car better not worst..particularly the mt-82...I've seen multiple examples of cars that are sitting at the dealer for 30 days plus awaiting back ordered fragile shift forks that will likely break again...Glad i stuck with my 16 Auto of which i haven't had a single issue with!

    Reflected sunlight glare onto the digital dash or reflecting off the metallic surfaces of the steering wheel spokes. Along the same lines, the remote garage door control on the visor. I drive into the setting sun when trying to operate my garage door - which makes me lift the sun visor to operate the control. My Mazda has the garage door controls on the mirror - which I find much more practical.
    Most of this could be solved by moving out of the desert! :rolleyes:

    Mine has no quirks, Everything works as it should at 17000 klicks, and perfectly...There are however, a few things I just plain dislike about it, but thats my fault for not paying attention when i bought it. Dislike....@!%#@ radio buttons on wrong side from my 16,and every other ford in the family! #$%@$% useless paddles i can't use when turning the steering wheel more than 1/4 turn. Next one needs button on shifter or no more auto for me. And wife hates glare off passenger side dash from sun, it can be bad yup, but duct tape fixed that...
    Guess i shoulda paid more attention on test drive instead of just driving crap outa it..:)

    I thought Euro spec cars usually have more, not less options.

    Someone put felt on the recess of his non digital IC to reduce glare.

    I tried putting some dark fabric in there and I could tell it would make a HUGE difference. But it seems like it would require a bit of work to cleanly line the plastic around the IC. With a non reflective material.

    I hope it appears with one of the many software updates. Although I suspect you might not have a Mustang by then Mazman if you don't find the love soon.


    PS You shouldn't have let them win last night, the whole world was rooting for Sweden

    Seems like you are sensationalizing a bit. AFAIK, only one person on this forum has had a problem with shift forks, and he was ham-fisting his shifter. My MT82 is great.

    An odd rattle noise driving after a cold start (usually only in the mornings and not when leaving work after it's been sitting 8 hours), but goes away after a few minutes.

    I wish Ford had fitted front parking sensors.
