Id be fairly confident that youve just got ripped. Id be pretty upset, as they have a HIGH retail price from ford. Have you paid up yet?

Holy f**k man. If you've been had I would report them to the cops.
Stuff the consumer affairs thats just plain robbery.

Let us know the results of it all and let us know the name of the mob so we can avoid them and bad mouth them here on Fordmods.

That's so horrible! They shouldn't have had it for 3 months for starters!
It's difficult when you're just getting used to a car and you have to have it fixed - very hard to know what's right and what's not.
What were the major things you had to have re-done?
