#12 of 235 headlight & paint protection kits
Feb 22, 2001 (11:27 am)
Just a heads up for those looking to use headlight and paint protection kits (i.e. x-pel). I received word from x-pel tech support that they are working on the application design for the Tribute and that the kit(s) should be ready within a month from now.
#13 of 235 Ford Protection Package
Apr 09, 2001 (12:40 pm)
I just reserved a Ford Escape that the dealer already had on order. I was feeling pretty good about the deal until an after market rep came to try and sell us a warranty package on the paint finish, interior fabrics, rust protection, undercoating... He said that no, none of these things would be covered under the original warranty. If you bought at the time of purchase $850 for 5yrs...otherwise $1300. Is this BS? We've never had anyone try this in the past. Usually get undercoating thrown in (usually buy GM) Thanks...

All those after market items are a rip off! You have a clearcoat finish (paint), manufacturers rust protection & the fabric protection can be accomplished by 2 cans of scotchgard. Oh, the undercoating is nothing but a can of black paint.
Now an extended warranty on the parts of the car itself are another matter. This is also a negotiated item. Go to "carbuyingtips.com" for the complete low down. I don't have enough time to explain the whole process.

Where can I find accessories for the new Ford Escape and can accessories for the tribute be used on the Escape?

#20 of 235 Tribute link?
Apr 18, 2001 (9:12 am)
I once saw a post, not sure where, for a low price Tribute accessory link from an Alabama Mazda dealer. Anyone know the link? They were all factory accessories, however, the prices were the best I've seen. Thanks in advance for any help.
