Discussion in '2013 Ford SVT Raptor Forum (Reply Only)' started by krypt0, Aug 16, 2013.
Unless you KNOW that "NPF stands for Not Properly Functioning" you're speculating as to what that means and it's not safe to assume that the vehicle is less than what it should be (as in mechanically defective).
It's hard to imagine Ford selling a vehicle that is mechanically defective. And it's even more difficult to imagine that if there are any issues with it they wouldn't have to be disclosed at auction.
I agree completely.
1. This is why I blocked out all identifying information and posting this here to get others opinions on this.
2. The auction comments (which show up as Announced Condition in the lane) do say the truck starts and drives, but the NPF is what's confusing
Any mechanical or title conditions, major damages, etc. are disclosed here
3. I am not at all accusing Ford, any dealer(s) or involved parties for trying to sell subpar or defective products.
However, I am familiar with manufacturer buybacks (mostly from BMW) and know that they were quite common on vehicles with HPFP.
I have never seen or even heard about any buybacks or customer returns on Raptors, so thought people in this community may be interested.
Could mean not properly financed. ....

With only 2200 miles I'm going with this as the reason for the buy back. It would be very odd for Ford to go through the lemon law process for a mechanical issue in 2200 miles.
This makes the most sense.
I was seriously trying hard to wrap my brain around the possibility of Ford buying back a new truck and not letting the dealer fix any simple issues there might have been.

From the picture, it looks like it still has customer plates on it as well (hard to really tell).
I unfortunately had to go through a Ford buy-back on a early build Super Duty when the new 6.0L Diesel came out. After 4 dealer attempts to correct the issue with the truck, they offered to do a buy-back and I was able to re-order the same truck.
At least in my case, I don't believe that it was reflected as a 'lemon' as Ford did the right thing and took it back as they knew there was an un-fixable issue.
Depending on the state (Illinois is 3 times or 30 days in the shop) to fix the same issue, Ford could have decided to buy it back.
But with that said, they would have corrected the issue before selling it which I'm sure is the case here.
Sometimes allot of it comes down to a customer satisfaction thing.
