Not to impressed with my '12 so far

Been to shop twice so far, bought in march, and only has 2500 miles on it.

First time went to shop, as i had the in 50 miles your speed will be limited to 50 mph due to exhaust fluid malfunction.

Second time to shop, tranny is shifting poorly, and getting a slight clicking from the steering column when turning the wheel to the right.

Three other things really bothering me on the truck:
-small paint flaw on driver side (big glob of metallic)
-rattle coming from driver side a-pillar somewhere
-spots on rear bumper (appears something has chipped or eaten thru chrome finish already)
-clicking noise in steering column still there, dealership said its normal??

I have owned alot of fords, and this one seems to be the worst when it comes to fit/finish and new vehicle issues. Maybe i just got one that was built on friday before a holiday/long weekend, but seems like ford is slipping a bit.

Anyone else, or is it just me?

Just had the exhaust fluid error today myself, 740 miles on the truck. It cleared itself within 25 miles. Other than that I have no complaints. Fit and finish seems to be exceptional on my truck and it is much nicer to drive than my 06 was.

Mine has a few paint flaws too - trash in the paint.
Mine has a big dent in the roof and another one in the bed. Don't know yet if dealer will fix.
Passenger side window trim has a big hump in it.
Otherwise, it seems like a good truck.
No Def issues (knock on wood.)
Tranny does clunk when putting it in gear IF I don't give it time to boot up. Let the bing bongs finish and no clunk.

Did have one tank of fuel where the mileage plummeted to 10-11mpg, but the next one it was back to it's normal 16mpg.
I don't care for the elocker (open diff.) Truck has too much power for 1 wheel drive, especially on the street. A Truetrac is on order and should resolve this.

Overall, seems ok. Then again, only 3kmi on it so far. Time will tell.
