With a 2012 you're well beyond the time any state "Lemon Laws" could result in a buyback.At what point does ford start entertaining the idea of buying back a vehicle? I am on my third clutch for my focus and it is starting to do everything the first two did that caused them to get replaced. At any point will ford work with me to put me in another vehicle? I am even willing to stay ford...(escape or fusion). But the constant hit or miss trips to the dealer to get it diagnosed and replaced is wearing me thin and just wanted to know if anyone has ever had to or been able to have the car bought back?
So, will Ford buy back your car? Almost certainly not.
If you've been a good customer, your dealer might be sympathetic, but they aren't going to be very enthused about putting a troublesome car on their used car lot, so don't expect miracles. And be aware the resale value on these cars is not great even when working properly.
If you really want to get rid of the car, wait until it's bad enough to take advantage of the extended warranty on the clutch and seals (if that's in fact the problem). After it's fixed, trade it or sell it before it has a chance to turn on you again.
