Ford Motor Complaint - Paint peeling, oil pan rusting, tranny issues
BUFFALO, MINNESOTA -- I am a loyal Ford man and so is my family. Lately my trucks have been worthless and Ford will not stand behind their workmanship. I bought 2 Black f 350 trucks in 2002. Right away i had paint peel on my drivers door on the Ext. cab. Ford painted it and told me that it was just that door and the rest of the truck would be fine. After the warranty was up, my paint started peeling on the passenger door. Ford would not stand behind it so i got rid of the truck. My other 2002 Regular cab showed signs of peeling at 24,695 miles. The whole truck needed to be painted. Because i was passed three years, they would not repair it. After fighting with them for a few months, they said they would paint it but i had to pay $700. What do you do? So they painted it and i paid them $700.
Now the truck has 50,000 miles and the tranny goes out. Ford still will not help me. So Out of my pocket goes $3000.
Now the oil pan has rusted out on my 7.3 diesel engine. I am passed the 5 year 100,000 mile warranty. i asked the dealer if they would call and check with Ford to see if they would help. He said he knew that Ford wouldn't do anything so he wouldn't even bother calling them. They want $2100 to replace the oil pan. This is a joke. It is costing me a fortune to keep this thing running.
I have never had a oil pan rust out on anything in my life. I drive a 1987 ford ranger with everything original and it runs like a top. My dad has a 1986 F150 with all original equipment and it runs awesome to. Why can't they build this stuff better or stand behind the workmanship?
