The reservoir cracked and leaked anti freeze every time I parked, had to keep filling. I replaced it and it cracked again after about a year. I still have this problem. I took it off and patched it up. let's see how long that will last.

It's just a small leak but it still makes a mess. I feel Ford should take care of this issue. If I don't keep adding anti-freeze I can blow the heads or event the entire engine. Anti freeze is not cheap.

When I went to get the reservoir from the auto store, Ford shipped the wrong one twice. I also found out that the resevoir is notorious for cracking on the bottom on this model car.
