Well folks here is more of the sad story. I now know why the Ford oval is Blue, it is us holding our breath for them to take ownership of and to fix an issue!
After 40 continuous days in the shop I picked up the car on 2/25 and two days latter with just an additional 150 miles driven the Cross Traffic Fault error came on again. Yet another photo to document the event, another call to my local service manager, another call to my assigned Ford CRM and another PM to Ashley.
Lot's of communication happened that I did not list on the forum, giving Ford every opportunity to do the right thing so don't flame me for a rant.
Today Ford called telling me it has denied my claim for re-purchase. Says it does not meet the standards of the Maryland Lemon law as it is not a primary system that is having an issue. It seems it was lost in translation that the car has a safety issue (hesitates/stalls) that is imbedded when the error message the car shows up each time a safety report to the NTSHA is forthcoming maybe they will hear me then. I guess having a vehicle out of service for 6 weeks in the first 6 months of ownership does not warranty a re-purchase.
On top of this "good news" the car is now total cluster. Since basically the whole front end needed to be disassembled (service report of what they did is two pages long) to replace the engine compartment wiring harness now the brakes and steering both operate differently then when I dropped it off and this is in addition to the primary problem not being addressed.
1. The brakes have no feel (very hard) to them re-gen brakes then nosedive braking. No smooth transition from re-gen to standard brakes to complete smooth stop as it was before the vehicle was disassembled.
2.The steering now feels like you are using a video game steering wheel controller auto-centering the wheel (yes I have lane keeping off). Turn the wheel right or left the wheel wants to go back to center.
3. The engine wiring harness is not installed properly with at least three of the harness standoffs not put back into the holders. So the harness is free to move about.
4. Since both the fender liners had to be removed as well, when they were reinstalled the fasteners installed on both sides do not match.
5. Who knows what else as I cannot see hidden areas they might have worked in.
Now that both the brakes and steering are involved they simply get one chance to make it right.
I immediately contacted the local dealer with all these issues. Since the dealer cannot take action without the direction of an FSE I am now in limbo as they determine the next steps.
I already reached out to BBB and they have opened a case fro me. I will be looking for the best local Lemon law lawyer to come at Ford from this direction as well.
So all I can say is if your car has gremlins no matter how well it is documented you are clearly on your own.
Perhaps a 30 year hiatus from Ford products was still was not long enough.
