May be old news, but I just read there is another recall on the Sport? Wrong front control arms installed, "Affected vehicles may exhibit stability issues when the roof is loaded to the max...".

Hate to hear that. I searched and found this article on CNET. They are not complimentary to Ford regarding recalls. There is a silver lining in this dark cloud-- only 106 vehicles affected. 2021 Ford Bronco Sport recalled for the second time (msn.com)

Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Stratus
Man I almost bought a Stratus back in 1994 but the dealership valet parked my car and wouldn’t give it back when I was ready to leave. I will never buy a car from them. Ended up buying a Camaro instead.
Edit: Nope sorry it wasn’t a Stratus it was the Avenger.

Yep the Avenger replaced the Stratus, basically the same car just a different name. I still get the employee discount and will not buy another one of their products. They produce fast products but everything else about the vehicles is cheap, but thats just my opinion.

This about recalls and tsb's
Technical service bulletins.

The more i looked at vehicles and researched issues
The more i found EVERY manufacturer has issues.
New vehicles, less new, sorta new, little older, more older, and old.

That said, previous to these resolvable issues was already interested in research and pricing
Fords extended warranty
Premium care.

Anyone else got pricing?
For how many miles?

It’s been a while since I bought a brand new ford. But back in 2000 when I bought my first F250 I got an extended warranty for $1200 for 5 years and 100k miles. Now I don’t know if it was a Ford thing or a dealership thing but if at the end of the warranty if you didn’t use it you got your money back. It was nice getting a $1200 check after 5 years.

Yeah, that's the one to which I was referring. Not very many vehicles, but a big mistake. When I do risk assessments I look at the impact and the likelihood. This reminds me of a small likelihood (number of vehicles), but big impact. Bummer.
