Corey, youíve definitely seen some problems, and not to minimize your concerns, but at least your trans didnít cr@p a brick on the ride home like some other guys here. It does sound like theyíre making it right but donít get frustrated or wrapped up over stuff like this, itís not worth your health.
Agree 100%, QC issues like yours should have been caught well before shipping. Make Ford and Ford Performance aware. Do it constructively. 03Darin made some suggestions on the forum in other posts on how to get your voice heard about stuff like this.
I almost ran out of daylight when I went to pick up my truck; Iím in NoVA and had to ride I66 west to pick up my truck so I took half a day off, figuring, heck, if I hit 66 before 3:00PM, Iím golden.
No. at 2:30 PM there were - this is apparently unique to northern Virginiaís pi$$ poor drivers - ďSun delaysĒ. I had the dealer expecting me, and I managed to get there but with less time than I wanted. I had a gaggle of onlookers around the truck the moment I arrived. I started snapping pictures and looking immediately, did the test drive, came back from the test drive and it was dusk. I just had enough time to go over the paint interior, and underneath.
Youíre spending this much, take the time to do it right and go over everything. I have bought new vehicles before - 6 previous. One of them I actually missed a Ďcurbedí wheel. They made it right but ever since Iíve been a stickler at pickup. Even so, my truckís wifi is non-functional. it canít connect to any wifi. sees it, but wonít connect. Even the almighty Starbucks Wifi, which I believe is the official wifi of the Raptor.
Anyway, thereís a lot to the truck so it pays to be thorough.
