Doesn't your insurance cover the loaner for you? I'm pretty sure that's how it worked out for me.

Getting a rental/loaner under 25 years of age is usually an exception and not the rule. It's commonplace around here; you'll notice insurance rates drop dramatically once you hit 25.

I'm frankly really surprised you blew your motor. Nothing you had on that car could realistically have caused it, and definitely not anything Ford could say, according to the MMWA law.

Hey, it sucks that your motor grenaded. but at least its getting fixed. I'm sure the rental thing will work out as well/

don't let Juicedz get you are riled up. The best way through this is to stay calm. It pains me to see all the crazy, paniced hatred towards Ford when things are less than perfect, but hey, thats what warranties are for.

i hope it all works out for you.

That sucks about your car. It'll be fine, they'll have it back to you soon enough.

On the fact of a loaner, I've had two and I'm still not 25. Insurance will cover it (sometimes even if you don't pay for rental car coverage like me). I just called my insurance company and asked them the first time and they agreed at no charge. The second the body shop wanted my business so they gave me one for free as well.

Luckily I will be provided a loaner from Ford this Wednesday. The other two incidents were with a different car and different body shops.

Let us know. I like your red Sparco's.
