Unfortunately, I am going to have to find another dealer. Trust is gone. I have a call in to the Ford HQ Rep Mario yesterday and just left another message. We have a scheduled call tomorrow, so either way is fine.

Good luck, man. I have yet to find a Ford dealer worth a damn. They all seem to be crooked, or incompetent, or both.

Well......After my conversation with Ford, I will take the car back to Midway Ford since they are 5 minutes away from my office. Conclusion, South Miami Ford Dealerships are the worst. IMHO, why waste my valuable time driving all over the place. The dealer WILL fix my car under warranty. Maybe I am spoiled by Lexus, but they do at least have loaner cars lol.

UPDATE:

I spoke to the Gus Machado Ford a few moments ago... and they were apologetic about the incident and to be fair I will give them the chance. MY stomach cannot stand going back to Midway Ford.
