I 100% agree with you!!!! My very first brand new car purchase was awful I traded in my other car because I wanted safe and reliable(wish I didn't) and that's something I didn't get. Understand if I bought a used car all these problems. Will never ever be a repeat ford buyer.....

Hey everyone,

Just a reminder that I'm the new representative for Ford Customer Service on the board. Please keep in mind that I can lend a hand by escalating to the Customer Service Managers for your area. For those who haven't already, please send me a PM with your VIN, contact information, mileage (estimates are ok) and your preferred servicing dealer.

For my friends in Canada, I recommend calling the Ford of Canada Customer Relationship Center at 800.565.3673 for further assistance.

Have a great weekend,
-Crystal

I know no one wants to ever threaten anything especially dealing with legal stuff. We just wanted fare and safe and if a ford machanic will not put his own family in it why would I... That goes for any of us I'm sure. Most of us don't have 25,000 in the bank so when I spend that much I expect the most out of my car and the ppl that make it

B-lou, although you were ganged up on earlier, the moderators are trying their best. Let's just keep this thread productive

I feel that this thread is here for those who actively need help. I could write a book on how badly Ford handled my case and share it again and again here, but I already posted my horror story once in another thread. No need to keep bringing it up. Let's you and me help some people when they need it

And if not on here(I'm sure I will get booted off lol) but I will keep telling ppl all about my story over and over as word of mouth is the best way to get the message out there. Thanks for reading

OK guys..... still completely off topic. Sonic I love the car but it's not the place to prove a point.

Lou, we appreciate the input. Sorry you had to go as far as lawyering up but that should not have to be the first solution for everyone.

^^ hopefully for most it won't have to come to that, but the option is there.... and yes you are correct.

Sorry B-lou, but, just to be straight here I have never encountered any problem whatsoever with Ford or associated service managers.
When I first purchased my Focus I had issues with the transmission. The problem was looked into and rectified to my satisfaction.
My dealer, All American Ford, is a highly respected organization.

While I don't discount the fact that there are some bad egg dealers/service departments, as my father had a horrible experience with one, does that mean we should "throw the baby out with the bath water"? NO. Take your business elsewhere. Never buy from that dealer and tell your friends not to as well. But don't blame bad service on the car. That's right along the same lines as the gun killed the dude, not the dirtbag holding it. Doesn't make any sense.

Do all cars have issues, YES. Anyone remember Toyota gas pedal/floor mats? Or dodge's reoccurring transmition issues? Or small interior pieces on chevy's just falling off? Or the right tail light on the Prius constantly going out? The list goes on and on.

While I am empathetic with the issues a fringe group of people are experiencing, and I dont doubt (most of) their legitimacy; does that mean ALL Fords are going to go to the crapper? NO.

You may notice, the people who are making the most noise(b-Lou and the like) have only posted a hand full of times, and have been members of this forum for a short time. While the people who are not having issues and love their Focus', people who you might consider "fanatics" have been on this forum for years and have hundreds even thousands of posts.

If you don't like your Ford, sell it, if you havnt already. And don't look back. Don't treat people like idiots who can't do their own research and figure out for themselves if they want to buy a focus.

Thank you for sharing your experience. Let's leave it at that.
