Ford Motor Complaint - Brakes again? - 2000 Cougar
NEW YORK -- I just feel ripped off and I was told no one can do anything for me...Well that's not good enough. I had my brakes done in July at Pep Boys. The brakes kept squeeking and I went back to a ford dealership to have them check it out. The said all 4 rotors were bad. So I had all 4 rotors replaced in September of 2003. Then in the end of April I had my rear brakes done with just a cutting of the rotors. Everything was fine. Then about two weeks ago I took my car to Ford just for an oil change. They told me my tires were shot and to replace all 4 tires. So, I had all 4 tires replaced. The day I got the car back and started to drive, I thought they didn't balance the tires correctly because the steering wheel was violently shaking. So, I went back to the tire place. They told me it was my front rotors or brakes and to go back to ford. So, I took my car to ford and low and behold it was my front brakes. They told me the front rotors were too low to be cut and I need new front rotors along with new front brake pads. I wouldn't care if I hadn't spent almost $900 in September on the same thing. There is no way rotors should go that fast. When I told Ford this they said the reason the rotors went so fast was because of the aftermarket brake pads that were used at Pep Boys. Well didn't the other ford dealership know this in September when they replaced the front rotors and not the brake pads? Well now I'm paying twice for fords mistake. When I called Ford motor company they said their is nothing they can do for me but place a complaint against the dealership...well thanks a lot I'm sure they will be calling me to settle this...Yeah right.....I honestly think this is fords fault and they should take care of it.
