My dealer put it on the computer and said there is nothing wrong, naturally, the technicican felt what i was talking about and said "well wait and see what happens" WHAT THE #$%^!!!! Brand new car, spent $22,000 !!! The dealership wouldnt even take it back and it only had a lil over 1,200 miles!! SOLOMON FORD of Brownsville PA, are terrible. I bought a 2010 focus off of them and had no problems, i carried that mind set over to the new 2012,boy was i wrong. Just changed the oil today, guess what? YUP oil leaking out of the bell housing!!! yup MAIN SEAL in the tranny or motor , Thanks FORD!!! I hope they dont screw up the Ford ranger, oops rumor has it they already did. With GM AND Dodge now O'bamo Motors Inc., and ford building junk, toyota the recall king, whats a blue collar american workers supposed to depend on in this country? Certainlly not any of the american car companies.
So.... is it the dealer you are mad at? The manufacturer? You seem so rational and calm, I can't believe anyone hasn't bent over backwards to make you feel better? Since you can diagnose your rear main seal without being able to see it - maybe give a shot figuring out your transmission woes. Let us know what you find. While you are at it, get your hands on this computer technican thing too. I know a few shop owners that would love to fire all these "technicans" and replace them with computers.
When discussing matters of vex, be prepared to be treated as the vexer.
