Damm Ford Service Departments!!!!

Well

Here is the story!

My Air bag light keeps flashing when it rains., go figure hey!

Every time I drive to a Ford Service department, it seems to stop, and no error reports show by the time they plug their putah into it!

Well yesterday it did it again., this time I drove to New Oak Ford in Clayton while it was still raining.

Wouldnt you know., they decided to drop everything and help me out on the spot

Not good enough!!!! I expected at least a several week delay!!!!

Congratulation New Oak Ford!

The Veradas airbag & ABS lights come on a fairbit. I've taken it to Mitsu dealers & it's still under warranty but they don't care they aren't interested in fixing it. They have seriously said to me oh there must be a fault in the wiring don't worry they still work & send me on my way.
When we 1st picked it up I told them the climate control didn't work so they took it for a spin & said it did which it didn't 1st service same thing & then on the 3rd time I took it back to them they relised the A/C compressor wasn't in the car & never had been.They fixed it but it still puts out wildly different temps for the front & back seat vents.

sounds hard to believe that there wasn't a compressor installed.

Best wishes

I used t work for a company that bought a brand new Volvo F10 semi trailer, and on its first run to Rockhampton sitting on 115km down a hill the 'cab-tilt' light came on.... driver crapped his pants..

he couldnt hit the brakes, just had to ride it out. in the end it was a faulty light... geez we laughed..


cheers

Tis sad but true I'm afraid to say which is especially ridiculous as Climate is standard on Veradas I could've understanded if it was an option
