mad Was this guy rejected from a test drive?

OK THIS PISSED ME OFF. I got this from an email a good friend sent to me. Basically i think the guy in the email that they are talking about is loser that prob was rejected from a test drive and made all the crap up as a "revenge" thing. I have asked my mate to get the details of which dealer and such that this guy went to. Now I just have to ask that no one else has heard of this kind of problem have they?? So please DO NOT bag me for it i am also still furious about this.

Hey fella's, don't want to cause arguments, but I think you will be
interested in this.

BLANKS's work colleague, one of the financial planners at the bank, went to his local Ford Dealer wanting to buy the brand new XR6 Turbo. Basically walked in off the street and said he wanted to buy one. The dealer flat out said, "No you don't, I will not sell you one". Stunned he said "Why not", the dealer said the Turbo is faulty and will die within 6000 kms. Obviously the reason why the dealer warned him away from buying it is because Ford has
to fix it under warranty and that means its costing them money. I don't know if its a wide spread thing if all car dealers are warning against buying the turbo, but it was certainly the case at where ever this bloke went to.Have any of you guys heard of problems with the Turbo. Just seems funny that one of the reasons why it won car of the year is the same reason why some dealers don't want to sell it anymore!

It wont cost the dealer money. It'll cost Ford money. Sounds like a bit of a knob.

Thats a load of rubbish. The Turbo design is one of the best out their, and stringent testing is done on every engine. I think the Ford dealer is having a go.
