and consumer education.

What if I bought a Vehicle and right after discovered it had Recalls. I brought it back. They stated The Ford Dealership would do work. Then the Ford Dealership did not do all of recalls. Suggested a part was on back order.
Later did a door latch replacement and a window acted funny after. Plus installed a fan motor. Then water came in car at feet and now car is almost a total loss. It is Sparking and sounds like it is a live wire just by hitting door locks and dealer says not their problem.? Plus because you call and complain to FORD Corporate, The Service Manager makes reference to you calling before telling you wont fix now. By the way Had vehicle in their possession over a month.?
and only have been purchased and still paying since August of 2015.
Then the Dealer suggests to refund me money, only toward down payment putting me upside down two loans?
How can they take in a car and it not have been shocking me and having such horrid wiring, wait over a month…then because I would not purchase a new car…not refund for replaced fan motor and check engine light.
That turned into me picking up and engine fluid coming in to feet.?
I would think their ill repair or part causing fluid to come in , or lack of replaced recall part or faulty parts caused.
How could they do that? This can kill people
