Yeah that is commiefornia for ya, even though it says its a 50 state car right on the window sticker. Sadly, if the original dealer did the courtesy transfer as originally agreed upon, all of this would have been avoided. (well minus the first motor blowing)
Yeah, they gave him the OBDII cycle stuff to carry out. At this point I'm guessing the emissions equipment is fouled from the first motor, but really not something the consumer should have to sort out given how long the issue is persisting.
Nope. They are 50 state cars, I bought mine out of state and smogged it no issue with normal driving (~100 miles). I think there is something legitimately wrong with the car my BIL bought.
The selling dealer (Alabama) originally stated they would just transfer the car to the local dealer and...
Anyone have a direct line to a Ford customer service higher up? My BIL bought his second GT350 in July (long story) and it's been a huge PITA. Bought it in Alabama, had it delivered to his local dealer (Valencia,CA). The car simply would not pass smog, they blew all sorts of smoke up his ass...
Eh...as long as you know what is required from you it's not a big deal. My local CU wouldnt finance the car without it first being registered in CA either way, so I had to pay for it cash, register it, then took a put a lien on it.
I basically got the MSO and bill of sale showing how much IL...
Same for me. IL (and perhaps other states)and CA have a sales tax reciprocity agreement. There was some form I had to fill out for this when I bought mine
Either way you will pay full CA sales tax when it's all said and done
$1900 sounds about right, the extended warranty price has increased a ton over the last year. The same warranty I bought from flood ford over a year ago has more than doubled in price. I suspect Ford is doing a lot more warranty repair work than they had originally anticipated
