No! I'm going back to ford and I want it f**k fixt f**k faulty piece of s**t lol


Do you mean the handle inside the car? It’s not faulty, it’s broken.... You have to replace the fuse holder, which is what it’s mounted to. They break easily; new they are about $120-$140. I picked a good one up from the wrecker for $40.

thats where most car yards get some of there cars from,


the below post is in reference to cars that are 5+ years old, as newer ones can be treated like s**t and still look like a good buy

cars from a yard are usually rough neglected examples that are sent to a contracted body shop for dodgy panel repairs to make them look clean. Only someone who doesnt give a crap about their car would take the pathetic trade in that dealers offer (or have more money than sense)

but i do understand there are some decent quality cars that have somehow ended up at a dealers lot, but its more of a lottery thing

ex rentals stay far far away !!!!!...... my mate frequently rents all sorts of nice examples, and doesnt hesitate to do his own car review on each of them lol, i assume most others have a similar attitude


me anda few mates wer gona rent some getz's for a day cruze and give them a big uhh.. review.. :lol: :lol:

It's a bad design... But not a fault. I HAVE had this and fixed it... It slides in from the back, the slots on the sides break off. You could try and put some screws into it; I just replaced the fuse holder.
