    Lemon Law Vehicles

    Got the VIN? I’m sure some of the folks with better access to information might be able to give more insight if they have can see the details of the vehicle.
  2. Looks like they have some non-chromed knockoffs: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mustang-Style-Front-Grille-Honeycomb-Black-Trim-Frame-for-Ford-Edge-2015-2017/292805210982?hash=item442c8cf366:g:BnsAAOSwRbJb4P5R:rk:27:pf:0
  3. I am so looking for that grille on EBay.

    JL Wrangler scores 1 star in Euro NCAP

    You could have worded this much better to get a valid, informed response.

    This car is trying my patience

    Got it back this evening. New TCM and a battery. So far so good. Let's hope we get a couple years out of the trans before any more issues.

    JL Wrangler scores 1 star in Euro NCAP

    To be fair, that's the last generation of the Wrangler (we wouldn't want you being accused of "playing semantics word games" ) . < Just ribbing you @bzcat 😉 > But you also bring up a very valid point. What one test puts emphasis on, another does not and the scoring gets a bit out of whack. Admittedly, I'm curious to see how these overseas scores compare to the eventual score it gets stateside and if there are some measures FCA will take to improve them should they end up poor as well.
  7. Yes, they all offer it. Ford began offering 84-month loans in mid-2016. While it is a ridiculously long term for financing a depreciating asset, it also says something about the rapidly rising price of cars.

    JL Wrangler scores 1 star in Euro NCAP

    The NCAP is not a crash test, but instead a variety of safety tests for those inside AND outside the car, some of which include crash tests. Mostly, they dinged the Wrangler for poor pedestrian protection and lack of driver safety assist features as compared to other new cars. Also, it does come with Automatic Emergency Braking, but only in NAFTA regions right now. It's coming to Euro later next year. Either way, poor showing.
  9. Looking at the nav system in the Explorer. The pictures were taken right here (just .4 miles from the Ford Motor Company Vehicle Operations General Office): https://www.google.com/maps/dir//17600-17642+Oakwood+Blvd,+Dearborn,+MI+48124/@42.2903163,-83.2077327,18z/data=!4m9!4m8!1m0!1m5!1m1!1s0x883b34354bee33bb:0x67743fb2fde98cb8!2m2!1d-83.2074699!2d42.2901755!3e0 My guess is right at the Marathon gas station.
  10. My guess is to get investors to pressure Ford into doing it. They know Ford stock has not been a boon and the investors are restless. Anything that promises better returns will get them frothing at the mouth for action.
  11. That interior...looks..........odd.
  12. So that equals only about $360,000 new warranty claims before it’s over? 😉

    Burn baby burn! (I’m sitting on a packed MTA train writing this LOL ) I was able to limp it to the dealer by my work. They didn’t close for another ten minutes but still didn’t bother checking it in. They had me fill out an “after hours drop off “ slip because they wanted to go home. Service at it’s best! All I want for Christmas is a manual transmission retrofit kit! 😂
