Nov 2009 - Mar 2015
Mar 2010 US $804 Car had a jerk forward around 12mph when decelerating 10% of time. Ford hotline said normal when hybrid battery overcharged. Second repair trip found cracked ABS ring on rt front wheel that sent erroneous signal confusing system, causing jerk. Rattle in front end was worn/damaged bushings and extensions of stabilizer bar links Despite reputation that hybrids have long brake pad life due to regenerative braking, my pads were completely worn and rotors also had to be replaced at 33k

Jul 2009 US $600 Engine system coolant pump replaced. Not under warranty. Service soon light coming on occasionally for a month with increasing frequency. Light continued to come on 3x weekly after repair. 
Aug 2009   Navigation system not working intermittently. Screen dimming, flipping through pages randomly, turning on and off on own,sound not loud enough. Via phone dealer says it sounds like the control head, entire unit needs replaced. We did not fix. Est $500. 
Dec 2009   Ongoing problem with check engine light. Replaced engine system coolant pump x2 and light still coming on. System reset as well. Found out that the door to the hybrid battery in this system was not working properly. Not urgent, delaying repair $$$ 
Apr 2010   Door to hybrid battery compartment replaced. Service soon light kept coming on 3x/week. Had previously replaced pump twice only to find out it was this door instead. 
Aug 2010   12v battery going dead when ignition turned on but car not running for 30min, happened mulitiple times. Dealer said battery fine, replaced anyway and problem stopped. Believe damage to battery is due to Nav CD player malfunction. Nav system on fritz, going on and off on own, trying to eject cd continuiously but unsuccessfully, did not fix due to cost, repaired on own quite successfully by hitting the dashboard just above the Nav system with fist. Works great!! 
Sep 2012   Windsheild wipers detached from the frame and needed to be welded into place.
