I had ford put two vehicles on a black list after corporate ordered no more work done to them at a dealership. No factory warranty, no 12/12000 warranty on parts that were replaced. They are both being sold this winter.

Btw, both of these vehicles are 100% stock with extensive service records and are used exactly as advertised.

That's crazy... I'd go bezerk! I doubt I would buy another Ford after that.

I'd buy a Ford with no warranty, before I'd buy a foreign car with a life time warranty

I agree with buy American 100%. I think one of the foreign car makers have more American car parts in them, Toyota specifically although I would not own one myself. I know when I bought a Hyundai a few months back the motors were made in Alabama. I like the button but sometimes unions have to realize when to stop, like at Hostess. I know the workers were being shafted and it's sad but greed runs and ruins everything.

Honestly it all depends on the dealer you take it to. I work as a Diesel Tech at a Ford dealership and I have seen managers and service writers make things go warranty even tho the cars were heavily modified. Just saying, keep a good relationship with your dealer and they will take care of you.

Y buy a sports car if you can't drive it hard. I told him find a new dealer. I track my car and my dealer knows it. Can't hide the racing decals and roll bar
They handle all my warranty claims with no bull****. I only do aero, suspension, and cosmetic mods. I'll do some tuning when my Warranty runs out. For now I love my car

Thanks!

Yes, all 4 hood pins are functional. The hood is tiger racing carbon fiber version & weighs 12 lbs. I didn't trust the factory hood latch with it.

Cool tech, its a bolt in. With a rear strut brace. I love it. Simple to go in & tightens the car up even more

I'll post a link later when I get home. Around $1500, can't remember off the top of my head. You should check with your strip, some require weld in cages
