Latest on the in-laws escape.... it's still in the shop and the oil leak still has not been fixed, don't know if it is parts or what, dealer is now giving him the run around. Don't know if the fuel line recall has been fixed either. The car has been in the shop for a total of 24 days now. He picked up the title from the dealer yesterday and got no answers from the service department. He's threatening to trade it for a Chevy Equinox when he gets it back, and he's mad enough to do it. Wouldn't that look great - a brand new 2013 Ford Escape with 63 miles on it setting on a Chevy lot for sale!
I'm hoping the lemon law kicks in first. I'll never talk another family member into buying a Ford product, too much BS
fordbuyer... Ohio lemon law according to Ohio Attorney General Mike Dewine's website states: If you can answer yes to any of the following 4 questions the manufacturer has had a reasonable opportunity to repair your vehicle under Ohio law. In the 1st year or 18,000 miles, whichever occurs 1st -
- have 3 or more attempts been made to repair one problem and then the problem continues to exist or occurs again?
- has the vehicle been in the shop for cumulative total of 30 days or more?
- have 8 or more attempts been made to fix different problems?
- has one unsuccessful attempt been made to fix a problem that could cause death or serious injury?
If you answered yes to at least one of these 4 questions you have the legal right to ask the manufacturer to replace the lemon or refund the entire purchas price.
