: the contact stated the rear window leaked when it rained causing the rear seat to become wet. The interior lights and the brake lights failed to turn off when the ignition was turned off. Also, there was a humming noise coming from the rear end as the vehicle traveled 10 mph. The rear end was replaced 1 years ago including the suspension, rear axle, chassis, rings, pins and rear differential. The service dealer and manufacturer were notified.

I have had the rear sliding window assembly replaced by the dealer 3 times. I am now experiencing this problem again for the 4th time. I'm hoping NHTSA will investigate this defect with Ford Motor Company and find a final fix.
