It's pretty ridiculous for a 4 year old car to incur over FIVE THOUSAND dollars of costs just to keep the vehicle running. Needless to say, this will be my last Ford product. Ever. I'm also in my 30's and drive the car like an adult and take care of problems (which should be obvious from the above).
And the dealership had indicated that my brakes will need attention at my next oil change. So you can add $200 or so to the above.
