Ok, my car is back in the shop as we speak. For those who dont know, its an 03 that I bought with 110mi on it. At 4wks of ownership and 1286mi a rod cap came off and it put the rod through the block. I went through a lot of grief with Ford and SVT over that incident and the apparent presumption that the car had been abused causing the malfunction... It did'nt seem possible to the people I spoke with that they might have put out a poorly assembled engine or engine component. They could find no signs of abuse and replaced the engine. The day I picked it up a pwr steering pressure fitting came loose and it dumped fluid everywhere and squealing like hell! I was'nt angry (A little dissapointed) an engine swap is a lot of work and so I dealt with it. That was 13 days ago and it would'nt turn over last night while I was out to rent a movie. It's in there now having the battery and alternator replaced. This is becoming pretty depressing....So what should I do? Should I be on they're asses for a new car? I feel like I should, but I know they're just not gonna say "Yeah, OK". I went through Ford Viewpoint and SVT over the phone when it threw a rod < That say's it all. Am I justified in wanting a new one, or is that a silly question? Any advice in an approach would be appreciated.
