Ford Transit Connect Problem

Didn't take long ...owned it for 3 months and on a rainy day I looked in my rear-view mirror and saw them side strips on the back sliding doors flapping in the wind. Since they were half-off I just pulled them off. Drove the dealership and also pointed out that there is a problem with rubber trim on all windows, appearing to fade and there is a baked on sealer stain on them causing more discoloration. WHAT? Ford didn't call back after this complaint yet...and I went to another dealership that put the side rubbers on ..only to have them fall off an hour later.
Now a new problem -- the spring and rubber washer that are on the door itself which pertrude and affect the ability to shut the side doors -- rotted and fell off along with the spring...again, on another rainy day.
And I thought my 2000 windstar was bad -- not so;...in fact it's a luxury mobile compared to the transits cheap plastic investments. WILL be complaining to FMCompany very soon on this lemon.
