Hi,
Iv joined on here to find out more about the ST before i buy one, having looked at the buyers guide it seems there not without there problems, a list of 'common problems' seems to concern me, are they that bad?
Im thinking of buying an 08 facelifted ST3, have ford addressed any of the problems on the new one?

Any 08 on owners had many problems?

My 08's clutch is slipping, although that's because it's remapped. A number of people have had alternator failure around 30-40k and a couple of bods have had driveshaft issues. I think they are the main problems.

Apart from the above, what a perfect car!
