Maybe someone at Ford could look at the old seal and get an idea what the failure mode was?  Could be a lot of reasons including being damaged while installing.   This cost Ford a lot of money too and they don't want to replace this every 5 months either.   Maybe the third time will take care of it?  Does not seem to be a common issue on this car so far. 

 

Good luck.

The Ford dealership found no cause for the seal going out. I tried to get some help from Ford. The area service manager was of zero help. In fact rather abrupt about telling me that's the way it goes. My dealership did help giving me by some help. I found on line that they had a few 2015 models left. I called the GM and let him know what was happening. I told him what I wanted and he did just that so I now have a new 2015 SEL. I am happy with them but Fords rep is way down on my Christmas list. I really dnidnt want to keep on with the problem :)

I'm curious if you notice a MPG difference between the two CMAX's and anything else. :)

Jus did a four hundred mile road trip that I do quite often. Two thirds freeway at 65 last third two lane at 55. Many high mountain passes on borh. Lots of up and down hill driving. Averaged 43 on yhe 2013 and 43 with the 2015. The new cr not broken in and of cource new tires so I think it will go up ip nd up! :)
