What is your idea of a lot of $$ to get this done? But whatever the case, if
this vehicle is under warranty from FORD, then call Ford customer service
(warranty) line. They will fix you up, last thing they want to do right now
is piss off customers and lose their return business. The people on that
line are warranty specialists, and they will either refund your money or
call the dealer and have the dealer refund your money. I also liked the
other guys idea of sending CERTIFIED letters to both ford and the dealer.
But regardless, anytime you have a problem with a dealer (I dont care who
made the car) then that dealer has to uphold itself to the vehicle
manufacturers whose name they put on their sign. All dealerships are
basically a franchise of the auto manufacturer. They have their guidelines
to follow just like all the fast food restaurants.
