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.

the problem being is it was purchased threw a differant dealer, and they dropped the ball and didnt complete the deal in time as the car sat at the Ford dealer.... I would love to keep it but for the money they want to fix it there is NO WAY im spending anoth 10k to fix this "New Car"..

also MG_MK3 sorry if this thread is in the wrong place but it does apply as yall will be "tuning" your fouci.... o and they CAN tell if the ECU has been tampered with......

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.
