Or ....have all the work done at the dealer. As a package deal with warrantee before I sign on the bill of sale.
1. Roush advertises that putting a Roush supercharger on a new car is backed by an agreement between Roush & Ford. Why should I have to wait 3 years?
2. Precedent in law says that Ford has the burden of prove to show that your actions caused a failure. That certainly could be true in a transmission/clutch failure, but many dealers won't even fix the radio or your turn signals if you've put a Roush blower in your car without you having to go to the District Rep. Much of it is service dept. ignorance and arsenholens at a dealerships.
If you've abused a car they shouldn't honor the warranty, but not use some weak excuse to get out of it! It is usually some ***** at the dealership that won't even contact Ford giving you his 2¢ opinion because he drives a ten year old station wagon and is jealous you can afford a fun car!
