Wow, very weak on the rental car.

Even worse on the clutch. Hope to hell I don't encounter anything like this. Let us know what happens.

Oh man that sucks your clutch/trans is having issues. I know I'd be really pissed if I had my car less then a month and it started having problems.

There is no way in hell I'd be paying for a loaner car. Are you a pushover? If my dealer ever told me I had to pay for a loaner the ***** would hit the fan.

You Should contact FORD now about the loaner man. That is bad business and will not float. As for tranny.....What happened? I mean whats wrong? Symptoms? This dealer and you must be at odds over whats up. Hope you get things worked out.

No im not a pushover >.< i contacted 2 dealers and both said a loaner isnt covered under warranty. And their insurance wont cover it. I called ford and they said the same thing but also escalated it to see if they cant help me out. The service tech said its most likely going to be a warranty issue and the service manager said if he pulls it apart and my clutch is burnt they wont cover it because its a wear item! I called bullcrap on them for that cuz i have been ok on the car and i only have 1900 miles!

You need to tell them if there is a problem with the clutch not disengaging you are going to have some burn on the clutch material..Dont let them screw you ,,I had a rnger with that problem and the springs (fingers) a couple was broke and it also burnt the clutch a little,,they probably know that and going to try to make you pay for the clutch..

Yeah a friend was telling me about that too. Im going to say something if they dont fix it. And they drove it 250miles to me from another state. So when i bought it it already had 250 miles on it. Who says whoever drove it didnt eff it up?!

That is interesting, that they had someone drive it too you. Maybe I am too limited in car sales, but the friends I have that work at car maxx, even they don't do that, the cars get put on trucks and brought from one to another.

Glad to see things are working out for you though!
