Every since i brought this car I have had nothing but problems. From having to replace the engine, to the ignition, then starter, now my steering wheel has come off. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER FORD MODEL CAR AGAIN. THIS HAS BEEN THE WORST EXPERIENCE EVER AND I HAVE ONLY HAD THE CAR FOR A YEAR. (I brought it from a dealer).
