Complaint Review: ford
ford ford 1998 contour scam Internet
ford issued several recalls on the ford contour years varying from 1997 to 1999 in their recalls it states these vehicles have defective security systems and ignition switches also defective wiring harnesses and also defective tail lights and turning signals. customers have complained of these recalls and defective parts and yet ford has ignored all of the complaints claiming the warranty expired or the mileage was out of range included in the recall. these vehicles are fire hazards and not physically safe to be driven on the road. i purchased a 1998 ford contour from a buy here pay here dealer in des moines iowa last nov 2o12. the car had 148ooo miles on it and began to malfunction at 154ooo i was not aware of any of these problems and not informed by the dealer either. i am a faithful ford owner and buyer however i have been betrayed and nothing has been fixed by ford on my vehicle that i currently have a car note out on and have paid way too much money for this pile of junk. i am disabled and recieve disability and cant afford a newer nicer vehicle this car at the time was affordable but now i am facing repossession becuz of repairs ford should be obligated to fix no matter how many miles are on the vehicle. i have been lied to and told their was nothing ford could do. i do feel that ford should fix the vehicle as they manufactured it as a defaulty unsafe vehicle and have full knowledge about it. i have filed a small claim suit on the dealer, they shouldnt be allowed in the state of iowa to sell cars,trucks or suvs without checking these kinda things out. my life has been put at risk along with everyone out on the roadway and also others incurring the same problem.. my life is at risk because ford is scamming people on recalls and dealerships do not care about these type of things. both are only concerned about the money and profit from the vehicle. the people should go on strike against ford untill this is corrected, as the company can only continue to produce vehicles from the high dollar they charge people to buy them. i want my money to go toward a reliable safe vehicle. not just for me but for all drivers! ford needs to be honest and upfront with customers and quit taking the customers money and producing junk vehicles! ford needs to quit ripping us off!
