Well I went to ford to get the Ranger worked on...

Before the warranty ends.(Bumper to Bumper) I call them two days later because it a siht load of stuff to fix. And they said I need to talk to the manger about the mod on the truck... I have no idea what the manger going to say...

Well here is my list I made them to look at...

1) Driveshaft makes noise when backing up or you can feel the slack or jerk when you take off.

2) Starter makes noise when started at cold starts or when it not hot.

3) Radio bezel is peeling

4) Center console laid is cracked.

5) Driverside power lock quit workin, will not unlock.

6) Sliding rear window makes noise when drivin. ( Would like to get a single window)

7) Driverside brake pad is tight, makes niose when you step on the brake.

8) Passengerside wheel makes noise. I loosenin the nuts and pull the wheel back...

left slack in the wheel and the hub and I spin it and it stops makin the noise. ( I had aftermarket wheels)


And here my mod list...

ENGINE MODS:
K&N COLD AIR FILTER

Thats stupid, there are no mods that would affect anything you wanted to get fixed. They are just dancing around till you warranty it up.

Yea the only thing i had on mine was a 3inch body lift, 33's, and a tanneu cover....for some reason when i pump the gas it burps back out, and after many times ate the clear coat off...its not peeling, just dull....and they blamed it on the body lift, whoever installed it put in an extension, but they cant fix it....i have 4 wheel drive problems, when it engages it clunks sometimes...they said thats normal...and my driveshaft has slack in it also, when you hit the gas you can feel it....and my window motors were loose, when you hit the button, they jumped all over the place...they put grease on them, i was like WTF?? the motors are loose, you can move the windows back and forth! But i guess thats what you get for "free"

2) Starter makes noise when started at cold starts or when it not hot.

3) Radio bezel is peeling

4) Center console laid is cracked.

5) Driverside power lock quit workin, will not unlock.

6) Sliding rear window makes noise when drivin. ( Would like to get a single window)

7) Driverside brake pad is tight, makes niose when you step on the brake.

8) Passengerside wheel makes noise. I loosenin the nuts and pull the wheel back...

left slack in the wheel and the hub and I spin it and it stops makin the noise. ( I had aftermarket wheels)


My dad tell's me I need to talk to the manager so I was thinkin WTF...

My dad tell's me it all that **** you got on your damn truck... (dad's voices)

So I call them the next morning...

The manager told me my Brakes were not coverd under warranty...

So ok... had to pay for that...

So there was nothing to do with the mods on the truck...

And it's thompson country ford... They are nice ppl to me...

EDIT: And everything got fixed on the truck for how...

I'm Thinkin they're send all the paper work and my paper I gave them to the...

Ford Headquarters maybe get some recalls...
