Thumbs down Warranty Time .... again.....

And so it continues... back to the dealer for some more warranty work, lets hope that they are a lot better thenthe other place. ...

Getting a nice new focus for a loan car so that should be quite a treat to drive tot he country club !

Got a list of about 10+ things that still need to be fixed up on it, so on advice from XRChic i am taking it down to MT and see how they go!

THink i will have to ask they keep it as long as it takes to sort out all the issues, mainly the gearbox/clutch noises and the strange sounds from the exhaust. which the 2 other dealers cant find, along with a multitude of little things like vents and seats and all sorts of stuff

Ahh sometimes i wish i had bought something different might not have had all these issues

Anyone wanna buy a just run in ST170 ?

Chris

Re: Warranty Time .... again.....

Yeap sure, I'll start the bidding at $100!

Hope they sort it all out, imcompetent dealers can make the small things a real headache.

I assume you got a poverty pack slush-o-matic Focus to use? Take me to the country club indeed, James...

Tim!

Re: Warranty Time .... again.....

on buying another car, you would probably find the same warranty issue will exist

Re: Warranty Time .... again.....

LOL Russ ! Mine works... mostly

It could be the same focus ben it was sitting out the front with no petrol in it, had to put some in last nite !

A few things i have noticed different with the two cars :

Firstly when you unlock the cars the indicators stay on for a bit, they dont do that on my car.. and when you flick the indicator it flashes 3 times, never knew they did that as doesnt do that in mine at all.

Mainly you certianly notice the lack of power. Thats pretty noticeable for sure

Re: Warranty Time .... again.....

Apparently its the stone shield which is busted and that is causing the noise... hrmmm i doubt this but anyway... was told its not a warranty item as its damage... bah!... and that i have to pay for this... so my concern is what if this isnt the problem... will i be able to yell at them and get my $$ back.... interesting.. the saga continues
