Newsflash: This post was from 2009. I bought mine in November of 2009. It's fine on 700 mile trips.

And yes, I did get the Sport package, long before there was an F-Sport model.

Man, that p*sses me off. I was complaining about noises from the steering column the first year of ownership. Now that I have 167k on the car, it's starting to make crackling noises. Time to take it...

I would not buy the extended warranty.

My 3rd Gen has basically had routine service, three sets of tires (about to buy the 4th!), a new battery, and not much else. I have 165k miles on mine.

I'd say none of these things, except possibly the front brakes and the OEM tires (mine were Dunlops, and I swapped them out at 44k miles). They should give you the thickness of the pads in mm...

I didn't have to do front brake pads until nearly 90k miles.

It's a timing CHAIN, not belt. Supposed to last the life of the car.

Decently Rated Liftgate Struts?

So, the left strut on my hatch is starting to weep a bit, and the hatch is no longer opening to its fullest arc without a little encouragement.

I know that Sewell is no longer the go-to option...

I tow occasionally, and I had mine done at 92k. My car now has nearly 150k on it, so I think 50k is early, unless you do a lot of towing.

FYI, I paid nearly $800 for that service.
