I don't know why we're arguing about the price of this car for 2 pages. Yes, his $25k+ car has $18k resale value. That doesn't change the price he paid. The fact is he bought a new car that shifts into neutral while in-motion. If this were to happen while trying to pass someone or making a left-hand turn, someone could get hurt. It doesn't matter if it's a Focus or a BMW or a Geo Metro.

It shouldn't happen.
