Dealer recommended a fix (at $89 per axle). I was not happy with the situation since there are so few miles on the car because I was told it is not under warranty. If this is a known problem with Ford, why will they not stand behind it?
Front brakes lock up, replaced brake pads 3 times only to find out the problem was worn out caliper pins, but do to heat caused by the brakes being locked the calipers had to be replaced as well...
