I recently moved from Parma Ohio to Glendale Arizona over the last week, I drove my car with no problems at all. I noticed a little rattling noise which kind of sounded to me like a loose heat shield. I took it to a dealer by me which told me my whole exhaust system needs to be replaced converter,muffler hardware etc... due to corrosion. They said the work will be covered under the bumper to bumper warranty which is still good on my car since it only has 23,000 miles and it's an 04. A week goes by and the dealership calls to tell me that the parts have arrived but Ford will not pay for the repairs since the corrosion is "NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR". My car is 2 years old and the whole exhaust needs to be replaced what a bunch of crap. I called SVT which I think the guys over there just seem to be total pricks, they agree with the dealer in this case. Ford customer service said some big head inspector from Ford will inspect my car and determine if it's indeed a material defect. The dealer wants $1100.00 for the repairs on my car. So the moral is bumper to bumper means nothing! It really seems to be up to the dealer as to what will be covered. THIS IS MY LAST AMERICAN CAR........ If they can't make an exhaust system last more than 2 years then DONT SELL THE CARS IN COLD CLIMATES. CRAP, CRAP.
