#31 of 40 Lemon Law Apply Here???
Feb 28, 2013 (4:06 pm)
If a consumer is soooo unhappy with the quality of the product they purchased, can they return it? I know a car isn't like a pair of shoes that don't fit right...but I can't see having to be stuck with a car for years and years and worry about cleaning up after it EVERY SINGLE DAY there is any kind of moisture on the under carriage. I can't see how a car manufacturer is outside of the typical "consumer is not happy with the quality purchased, may refund", and how we are just STUCK with sub-par quality and basically are told "too bad...we have our money and you have the product", until we get far enough into the car payments where we are no longer upside down in order to trade it in on something else! When did buying a car become a prison sentence for a crime not committed???!!

The rust staining on the garage floor seems to stop after a while.

I think it actually builds up a protective rust layer and stops rusting any further after a short time. I've had two brand-new Fords and both were set up the same way. The rust does stop after a short time - I can't remember ever having it run off and create a rust stain, so it must have been within a few weeks that it completely stoppped.

They told me that unless there was a hole it was not covered.
On another point, my garage floor doesn't have a vapor barrier under concrete , and I never have driven in salt or rain with my vehicle, and its rusted worse than my wife's escape!!!!!!!

I'm curious, any response yet? I've had my Escape since Nov 1, 2012. I haven't seen anything on the garage floor other than the normal water/road salt/dirty grime that's common with a MI winter. What is Ford telling you?

Ford told me that it is typical for a car to rust and whatever damage it is causing on my property is no fault of theirs since its 'typical' performance of those parts. I can understand that response if the car is old and years of rust have gotten to the parts...but again...this is a brand new car STILL marking my driveway and garage floor like an old rustbucket! I'm so livid. I love the car's performance, the gadgets inside, etc, but this is embarassing!

Anyone know of anything further I can do to get out of my car?

I usually open the door if I want to get out of my car.
