That's why the resale values of these 'supposed' $30k cars is $18k. I'd also be willing to bet that you paid nowhere near $30k, for the car you're referring to.

Go look at your documentation. As others said, by the time you are done with all the taxes fees and finance, you are very close to that figure. And if you take into account the interest paid over time, in some cases it could be more.

Anyway the point is this. While I appreciate everything my CSM has done for me thus far, I am now worried that this will happen again. There have been many issues/complaints about the DCT on this car. I won't even go into the issues with the MFT and other gadgetry.

What is Ford doing to address these in a timely manner.....
