Ok, I bought a ESP with my truck in 2008 for $2400 to cover the truck for anything that breaks with in 72 months, and or 100,000 miles. My truck had one radiator replaced at 29,000 miles under Fords warranty. Ok, truck now has 43,000 miles on it and went in for radiator #2 today. The factory warranty will not cover this radiator, I understand, thats why I bought the ESP for $2400 when I originally bought the truck. I have to pay a $100 decutable with the ESP.
Ford calls me up today and says we can't get your truck to leak. I drive 25 mile back to the dealer for my service tech to tell me, "3.5 hrs of driving and idling the truck if finally started to leak." "Oh, and with that bumper on there with the brush guard its gonna be harder to replace the radiator." "we might have to charge you extra labor for the bumber being in the way."
I have a BuckStop bumper with a removal (REMOVABLE) brush guard. 6 bolts and the thing is off!!!
If I would have known that they were going to try and get every penny out of me I would have removed the damn guard before I went to the STEALERSHIP!!!
I'm done with Ford!!!
KISS IT FORD!
Love the truck, hate the service!
Thanks for the rant...
