    This has been a fantastic vehicle - have hardly put any maintenance money into it other than oil changes and the like. Will have to replace front wheel bearing now at 127K miles - that's it. Curious as to the liftgate crack as it also happened to me. Is Ford picking up the the cost to replace?

    I developed a crack to the right side of the emblem the spans from top to bottom of the liftgate plastic molding. It is garage kept and out of weather most of the time.
