Stop Sales

I created a thread in the General forum, about my negative experiences with a dealership here.

I figure I'll mention a portion here.

Has anyone else experienced, or is anyone else aware of a Ford mandated stop sales order for the Ecoboost to come down the line recently? I am being told that the recall for the fuel tank/lines etc has been changed to not allow sales / delivery.

I find nothing other than the recall from May.

I have not heard of a stop sales order. I can imagine they probably want to fix any that haven't already been sold though.

Even when dealing with a manufacturing issue, no reason for a dealer to be nasty. That only serves to create a negative experience that drives away customers.

Having worked at a Ford dealership, my suggestion would be to calmly voice your negative experience and concern to a manager and let them handle it. If they do not, go to a different dealer.

I tactfully emailed the salesman and the owners. As of yet...no response. Another dealer is not an option as this is the only ecoboost in a 200 mile radius and we've already searched for a week. I won't settle and buy what I don't want. They offered me a V6 instead. I have a V6. I'm just going to keep my 2014, and not do business with them. There should be more and better options in the spring.

So I've seen the actual communication from FORD on 5/26 and no affected vehicles should be Demoed / Driven / or Sold. If would be q violation of Federal law and the dealership would be subject to a $7000 fine. Nice - dated 5/26 - They told me one day prior to delivery.

Internal recall 15S19

Since this affects orders (for now), I'm leaving this thread here, as it will get more "eye" exposure then in the General Discussion.

Technically, this type of a post would get moved to another forum, as we try to keep the tech forums, well, tech.

But this is a good exception. I only ask that it does not turn into an ugly dealership bashing type thread.

I noticed this exact recall on a different site and when I investigated it, I found that my Mia was born 1 day after the end date for this recall.
