    Congratulations!!

    Now, are you going to get another Ford?

    Or do you have the option of Ford simply buying the vehicle back and you taking your business elsewhere?

    Read the decision. They are replacing it with a new Explorer. I didn't want to ask for cash because I could have been penalized for mileage and taken close to a $10,000 loss.

    That's awesome!

    Now -- get your new wheels and NEVER visit that dealership again. :)

    Sorry, at work, TLDR.

    I hope your new Explorer treats you much, much better.

    I can't see it either.

    Do you plan to keep the new Explorer or trade it quickly?

    I don't know at this point. I like the look of the new Pathfinder, so I might go look at it. Plus the new 7 passenger Hyundai Sante Fe will be out in January, and that looks really nice.

    I just hope that they can't find me a 2012 and I need to order a 2013.

    They will have NO PROBLEM finding you a 2012; you can count on that...

    It has to be either Black or Gray, and have the options I currently have.

    I just checked dealer inventory at about 20 dealers, and no one had it.

    Missed the part that it had to be the same color. As far as options go, didn't it state that if it didn't have the right options, you'd be given the cash for the difference?

    it says they have to give me a vehicle with the minimum of the same options that I currently have. any additional options are at their expense.

    Congrats, glad this has worked out for you so far! Now, Ford just has to make good on the decision, in a timely manner.

    I don't know what the ramifications are if they don't follow the arbitrators guidelines.

    Ford lured me in with awesome financing on my last 2 new vehicles and both had the transmissions go out before 50k miles, and both had the heater fan start making chirping noises at about 30k miles...

    I love the looks and the interior of them, and everything else has been solid, but I will pay 15% interest for a Toyota/Nissan/Honda before I buy another Ford with an automatic...

    They have come a long ways in the past decade, but still are behind the big 3 from Japan...

    Glad to hear you were able to get some satisfaction from the process...

    My problem is that the car is full of state of the art technology, that just doesn't work the way it was designed to.

    Plus I had a ton of small problems that needed to be fixed over the year I owned it.

    With credit for Ford having progressed greatly in recent years, when have they ever been able to produce a really reliable automatic transmission?
