Am I not allowed to move because of my ford warranty. thats BS. Ford is Ford Motor Company, not an individual dealership. The company should respect its brand and honor their cars as a whole company, not just a dealership in bum Idaho. Im not driving 5 hours to get something fixed that should have been replaced when I got the car in may.
Buying a "Certified Pre-owned" car gets you a warranty, yes, but it's not much more than a powertrain warranty ... the dealership runs the VIN # on Ford's website and then they punch it the part # and the site tells them if it's covered or not.

I was a Service Advisor for over 9 years ... I've done the above procedure thousands of times ...

And the warranty is good at any dealer, if it's a Ford warranty, but like I said, the Certified warranty is very limited in what it covers ...
