11. Customer service phone # you called and the name of the person you talked to. (if you can remember) Since I own 19 Ford vehicles and Ford has yet to repair any problems even under warranty after calling customer service with a complaint I have decided to save my breath and joyful watch Ford during their time of trouble because I will not buy another new FORD and give FORD the opportunity to do this to me again. A Proud Sponsor of “Sink Ford Sink” remember what goes around comes around, Ford step up to the plate it is now you turn to feel the pinch of big manufacturing - the customer not buying your JUNK.

14. What was the cause of failure determined by the dealer? They couldn't determine the cause if they wanted to.
15. What was the cause of failure determined by you? After repairing five cam problems and trashing two engines I am confident it is a Ford design flaw in attaching secondary cam drive gears to camshafts. < /SPAN>
16. How much was your statement? (I hope you kept your receipt) Being Screwed by Ford again, Priceless
17. What can FOMOCO do to make you a satisfied Ford owner? Stand behind their vehicles like Toyota, not beside the attorney like the BIG Three.

If you can hear me.
What SHO Nuts can fix let no Ford Dealer touch!!!
