Reliability

RECALL ALERT: More than 83,500 SX and SY Territories had been recalled to fix a fluid leak from the front brake hoses. [3]

RECALL ALERT: Nearly 5000 Territories are afftected with floor mats that stick to the accelerator pedal much like the same problems with many Toyotas including the Prius. [4]

According to Car Survey.org, the average reliability rating for the Ford Territory is 7.25 points out of 10.

Ball joint and front suspension failure

The flawed front suspension design is an evident problem in Series I Territories. With one of the problems, the ball joints wear out excessively to the point of failure. One owner experienced the problem and had the ball joints in his car replaced every 45,000 kilometres (28,000 miles) and they show signs of wear. Another problem is when a front axle from a 2005 model fell off. The owner heard scraping noises and she felt unsafe about driving her Territory. Many owners are frustrated emotionally and financially with their Territories and the whole company.

Safety
