2013 Ford C-MAX 4dr Hatch

141-horsepower 2.0L I4 Hybrid CVT FWD

33000 mi Carpet started to come off in the rear. The carpet is glued to the rear panels in some places, and the glue lost its bond to the plastic panels. Simple fix, just had to re-glue the carpet. 
7000 mi

US $44
Paint defect reported to Ford. Photos taken. Waiting for approval to repair under warranty. 
10000 mi Brought in to complete the paint work, they had the car 17 days (scheduled for 3). Not completed successfully, and I will not be taking it back. DON'T BUY THE TRI-COAT METALLIC WHITE PAINT, it's a nightmare (and expensive) to repair. 
12000 mi Loose trim on handbrake and luggage area cargo tie-downs. 
10000 mi SIgnificant body flex causes the doors to creak almost continuously. The dealer claims to have repaired this by lubricating the door seals, but the problem is not resolved. The doors creak as much as before the repair visit. 
17700 mi

US $331
Metal speaker cover on the top center of the dash rattles constantly because it's loose. Carpet in the cargo area separated from the plastic flaps that fold down when the rear seats are folded flat. The adhesive holding the carpet has separated from the plastic. 
8000 mi Door seal wasn't put in right when the car was built. 
12500 mi Power liftgate does not close all the way on its own. 
30300 mi Door handle tray was loose. Carpet peeled off from cargo area.
