"We are currently working on the Mazda products. The front and rear guards, as well as, rear bumper guard are different from the Escape. The side tubes are the only cross over part and we carry those currently. I expect us to be close to completion within four weeks on everything but
the rear light guards."
#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.
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...
