he voided the warranty "trying to tune his"? so with it not reading your nav card, and the sputtering they want to buy it back? And you know it was voided because...

EDIT: why is this in the performance section anyway lol

If they're the ones who made the buyback offer, then they are the ones who dropped the ball - a dealer doesn't do that unless it's something they should have caught.

Settle for nothing less than for what you paid. This should be a straight trade into another vehicle, without having to add anything to the new loan.

Threaten to use a lawyer if you must, but don't settle.

10K is an awfully hefty number.

I agree with scott7278 Take no less than what you paid, or try and work a deal for your paid value towards a new car.

or lawyer up!

The only way I see the dealer or Ford being liable is if the car was sold as a certified used car. Otherwise sold as is in my opinion.
