Where do I start -- This car was the biggest piece of crap I ever had in my life.. One mistake I will never make again = I got the car brand new - It looked pretty nice for the money. However it cost me over 10 grand in repairs.
I had my transmission fall out at 2 thousand miles. That was the first one. I got it fixed and did not think much of it.
I had a stereo system, rims, lowered it and had ground effects put on. Then my transmission went again - they voided my warranty and refused to fix the car for free cause of the aftermarket parts on my car. I paid to fix it cause they said that because of the 17 inch rims on my car, it put stress on my transmission and because of my stereo system being wired into the computer, it sent bad signals to the transmission causing the failure.. I had it fixed and it broke again - in fact it broke 4 more times. The last time they left it in a box in my trunk and I got the car towed back to my house with my parents fuming.
I wanted to sue Ford for negligence and not fixing it right. They were rebuilding it and everytime they rebuilt it, my car was out of service for a week if not longer cause they took their time. So I went for a long time without the car out of a one year period, and I almost died each time my car failed on me. I drove home in reverse one time, and drove home on L low gear another.
I finally went with my family to the dealership, they told us lots of crap, then they finally said listen, we will take the car back in a trade in and give you an extra 5 thousand dollar credit because of all your problems.
I still took a huge loss in the car and in order to get it, I would have to go to court. So I settled with the extra 5 grand. However, the 5 grand had to be put towards another Ford. I put it on a 2000 Ford Taurus which is the best car I have ever driven. It has 205 horse power and leather, and is very comfortable. I'm happy with the car I have now, however feel I deserve some kind of payment for my loss on the piece of crap ZX2..
If there have been any class action lawsuits against Ford I would like someone to contact me on this matter at my email address ROCCRAZYZ@aol.com
