Never buy a piece of sh*t f*cking FORD. I drive 4 miles daily. 66,000 miles total all maint. done on time.right after the warranty expired: 1. Wheel bearings went out. 2. Back hatch cracked (very noticable and ugly) 3. Front AWD Transfer case is leaking 3. 2 Alternators 4. CD player will not eject the CDs

Until us lazy ass American workers can build a car the right way or at least fix our own f*ck ups, I say let those OVERPAID lazy fat f*ck bastards starve. We don't need to bail a DAMN one of them out. This is pretty Goddamn rediculoous. I am an American. I know what we are capable of and yet we are too lazy and overweight to do anything right. I think out work ethic is sh*t.

This was originally a $40,000+ SUV. And for What? It is American scrap metal. And working for a steel mill for 10 + years, I know how worthless scrap metal is.


Update from Jun 28, 2009: UPDATE>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Check out this Great sh*t from the terrible FORD MOTOR COMPANY. I took this piece of sh*t to the dealership for repairs. Mainly for the:

1. leaking transfer case 2. bad wheel bearings.

They... 1. Took the car in for a mandatory $70+ dignostic fee. (even after i TOLD them what NEEDED TO BE REPAIRED). 2. They charged me the $70 fee & after inspection told me that I was right about what NEEDED TO BE REPAIRED 3. They kept it for a day and fixed the leaking transfer case seal and (without calling me) ADDED An OIL PAN SEAL. Afterwards charged me $500.00 for the seals and did'nt they touch the Wheel Bearings. 4. Afterwards they told me the Wheel Bearings were Going to $900+ parts and labor.

So After paying for the repairs that I did not ask for The woman giving me my change threw it at me. So i asked her is that how she treats a quick $500 customer? She gave me this stupid look and said "you know i did'nt mean to do that". So i threw all of her books off of her desk and told her i did'nt mean to do that either and walked out.

I WLL NEVER BUY A FORD EVER AGAIN. And if YOU do then you are asking for these same problems. Now that the other 2 of the BIG 3 American Auto makers have declined FORD has already started plans on how to PROFIT HUGE of of it. This mean major league SCREWING the customers becuse of the trust issues with GM and Crysler. Trust me I am a student of business, no matter how MUCH you spend, they will in some form do this to you SFTER you buy the PRODUCT.

Even if you have the money to pay for EVERY repair, Still, is it worth it for the hassle, rude customer service, and crooked way of business? If I was well off and could afford any (or) every repair on my car, just the time spent on the uneducated, lazy and BAD work ethic hires at the company's service department all the way to the design/engineers that made me take it the the the first place is enough of a hint for me. Make them improve their business to you! You have other options. Go to a dealer that is also competing for customers like me.Even if you don't like buying foriegn cars, YOU HAVE TO MAKE OUR AMERICAN CAR COMPANIES DO BETTER. Don't just hand your money over.
