Your trade-in would depreciate in the two month ordering period, so for the value to be lessened is not unusual. I cannot speak on future models, but we are not replacing current model transmissions with a different transmission.

I change cars every 2 to 3 years ,so buying a new car is not a new experience for me.This is the first time that I see the value of my trade in being dropped because of the excessive waiting time for the delivery of a new car.

As for an update on my situation ,I contacted Ford of Canada Customer Relationship Centre and hopefully I'll know in a few days if they will recommend a new car for me.It was kinda funny when they asked me what I wanted from Ford.I simply said "A car that work!".

Seriously,It's been 8 weeks and because I don't trust this car ,this pretty much ruined my vacation.And for most of it ,I had that rolling billboard that they call a loaner.Yeah sure I'm going to go on a road trip with a loaner.Hopefully Ford will either fix this permanently or simply replace my car.And this time I want the manual transmission.
