Ford Motor Complaint - Class action suit, all nylon - composite intake manifold
CALIFORNIA -- I have a low mileage 1997 cougar. The reason I have low mileage is because I always have had a second vehicle which right now is a 2005 Ranger. I have low mileage, but if you add them together they have average mileage. ford Motor is criticizing me for having a low mileage vehicle which I have always had maintained by the dealer following the maintenance book. I have no problems with the dealer except I was never told that this manifold could be replace with 7 years of the purchase date pursuant to a United States District Court decision based on corporate attorneys and an arbitrator (case C-03-2628 CW). Because of wanting a reliable car, I had $1,220 worth of work on 9/27/2007. On 9/30/2007, after only driving the car about forty miles for a trip, the low fluid lamp came, unfortunately I could not pull off the road because it was a levee road. I finally got to a marina just before the engine boiled. I had the car towed about 40 miles to my dealer. It costs $1400 dollars to fix the manifold. ford knew about the problem some years before,but did not do anything until a class action suit was filed. The suit on-line document say the Ford Company was to notify owners. ford customer service twice told me that it was the courts responsibility and they placed the notice in Parade and USA, which I don't read.
They, Ford Motor will not do anything, but kiss me off. Not even a "I'm sorry you are having that problem". No more ford products for me after buying about 14 in my lifetime.
Anybody, but Ford...
