Re: 9 New Nameplates by 2023
Ford needs to get the basic's wright first, the Continental I order had a hood that was way out of whack, trunk lid was the same just not as bad and the back doors on the drivers side was not adjusted correctly it was into far. The hood's driver edge at the top did not line up with the metal trim that runs along the side of the front windshield pillar. The hood did not line up with the fenders top edges too. The car had allot of rattles and creaks something a new car should not have. It was a real let down it looked like nobody put any effort into making the car wright. I love the Continental was going try to order a 2019 but if the quality is this bad I think I may pass. I went around the dealer lot and the MKZ, Expedition and Navigator had what appeared to be the best quality no wavy door and side sheet metal like the F150's. The 2019 MKC's hoods where hit and miss, mostly a miss with gaps so big on one side were the hood meets the top edge of the front grill usually the drivers side with gaps that looked like something from the 80's. Maybe Ford should not have made the Continental in a Mustang plant. Flat rock has always been hit and miss on Quality. I would know having owned several Mustangs from that factory. Even the F150's had allot of quality issues the front windshield pillar inside interior plastic trim pieces are warped that have the grab handles. Looking from the outside in of the front windows you could see the side pillars interior metal post and the window glue. Which should have been out of sight and covered up by the black border around the front windshield. Really disappointing I hope one of you insiders that work for Ford gets them to take notice of these quality issues. What I think is killing the Lincoln Continental is the bad quality the plant is putting out. I did not expect my Lincoln to have the same Quality of a Mustang. I expect it to be better on lining up the panels and get better gaps too. It would be nice if the Mustangs got more care too so the Continental would also. Sorry for the long rant I just want Ford to do better. I got pictures if any of you insiders want to get this to the wright people to fix these things. Sorry for the rant was really looking forward to my new Lincoln, now I'm back to square one and do not know what I want now.
