2000 mi   Both rear shocks leaked oil. A Ford engineer I talked to said that examination of the first set showed that paint on the shaft had damaged the seal of the shock. Door edge trim peeling off. Starter Bendix was over-lubricated: appeared to be an oil leak when grease melted & dripped from engine bellhousing. Disassembled, cleaned, reassembled.

25000   Rear shocks were leaking. 
Ford Fiesta in Ontario, Canada
Jun 2010 - Mar 2011
  The grounding wire was too short. When the car was started at the dealership a second time, the engine stumbled and the 'check engine' light appeared and remained solid. As it turns out, a longer grounding wire resolved the problem. 
3400 mi   Fuel gauge is defective and could not be repaired after replacing the fuel sender unit and updating the car's software. A new instrument cluster has been ordered to attempt, yet again, a fix to the problem. The fuel gauge never showed the correct volume of fuel in the gas tank. After replacing the fuel sensor without success at an earlier date, the dealer replaced the entire instrument cluster. Finally and thankfully, this fixed the problem!
