Complaint: I am writing to express my concerns on my 2008 *** ******** that I had purchased from Interstate Ford on March 10, 2014. I also purchased the warranty from ** ********* to cover anything that may need repaired. I was thankful that I had purchased the warranty because the control arm of my rear suspension broke on October 24, 2014. The ** ********* warranty brochure shows that the control arm of the suspension is a covered part and I would only have to pay my $100 deductible. Unfortunately, I was told by ***** from ** ********* on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 that the control arm is not covered by the warranty because the warranty does not cover broken parts, only faulty or defective parts. I ended up paying for the parts and labor in full, $304.74, to Interstate Ford. ***** from ** ********* told me that they sent an inspector to check the control arm on my car and after inspection ***** told me that someone backed up into something or ran over something which bent the control arm and over time it got weakened which eventually broke. Since I have had the *** I did not back up into anything or run over anything but ***** informed me that it does not matter when it happened or with whom, only that it is not covered. On the day I purchased my *** at Interstate Ford, Interstate Ford did an inspection of my car. I understand that Interstate Ford sells used vehicles "As is" but my complaint for Interstate Ford is, if the vehicle is unsafe they should not be allowed to sell these type of vehicles. I thank God that when the control arm broke I was in town on a small street by myself driving at a slow speed. I hate to think of what could have happened if I was on the highway with my 8 and 7 year old nephews. Insterstate Ford sold me a defective vehicle and had the control arm broke on the highway it could have caused a terrible accident and major injuries or possibly,death.
The resolution I would like is for Interstate Ford to reimburse me for the payment I made in full for the parts and labor since Interstate Ford sold me an unsafe vehicle.

Complaint: In July 2013 I purchased a Ford Ranger Truck from Interstate Ford in Dacono Colorado to replace one I had recently lost in a house fire. I explained my recent loss to the dealer at the Ford dealership and asked numerous time if the Ranger I was buying was safe to drive. The dealer assured me that it was safe to drive. I was also concerned about the 4 wheel drive. It did not appear to bind when I turned the steering wheel sharply. The dealer assured me the the 4 wheel drive was working properly. Soon after the purchase I took the truck to my mechanic because sometimes it was difficult to get the truck into gear. Not only did my mechanic find the the clutch was shot he also discovered the boots were missing from the ball joints and the ball joints were rusted and falling apart. Recently I found out the 4 wheel drive does not work. I called Interstate Ford to find out what they would do to help me out with this truck that I was told was safe to drive (and was not) and did not have working 4 wheel drive. I spoke with a manager named **** who told me the truck was purchased as is and he could not help me.Interstate Ford took advantage of someone who had just been through a tragic and traumatic life event. They are heartless and totally lacking in compassion. In other words, the typical used car dealer. To add insult to injury, I inquired about purchasing a warranty on the vehicle in case something major might be wrong with the vehicle after purchase. I was told no such warranty was available. A few weeks later, after having repairs done on the truck, I received a notice in the mail from Interstate Ford asking if I wanted to purchase a warranty on the truck! How cruel is that?Buyer beware! If you want to purchase a vehicle from Interstate Ford have a competent mechanic check it out from top to bottom.
Desired Settlement: I would like to have Interstate Ford pay for the repairs that were needed to make the truck safe to drive and I would like to have the 4 wheel drive fixed.
In regards to ID# ******* we have reviewed the information provided to us. I had spoke to the customer a few weeks ago and she had a concern that the 4 wheel drive system was inoperable. In our conversation I had asked her if she had checked the 4 wheel drive at the time of sale or anytime after words, and she said" how would I do that since this was the first time I needed it with the snow we had." I let her know that you can check by putting the vehicle in 4 high and turning the wheel sharply and drive about 15 feet, and you will notice the tires would grab. I had let her know that I was unable to help her do to the time that had lapsed. If this was something she found within the first few weeks from the time of sale we would have looked into this matter out of good will. As far as the other issues she mentions in this letter there was absolutely no discussion. We did inspect the vehicle before the sale and per our records it was in working condition. The vehicle was sold AS IS- No Warranty and the customers only request was to remove the side rails off the truck bed. As for the warranty due to the miles a warranty is not available, and was noted on the Buyers Order.

Complaint: Vehicle sold was misrepresented by stating MPG was more than it is andradio was installed after purchase of car was to be matched by dealership but no receipt or shown "Due bill" given. I also had signed blank legal documents that i did not receive copies of was told that it is standard procedure in case secretary messes up paperwork they have on hand. On the warranty contract with the owners of interstate ford there was no odometer reading typed in where it was to be entered and when inquired about the finance adviser penned in and initialed on my copy saying that would be good enough, I know as well as anyone that that contract is based off the odometer i definitely feel two stepped with this part. I returned to talk to the salesman first given same answers and brushed off, then calledthe manager later that day and told me that they worked with me and have my signature saying what i agreed too when there is no copies or "Due Bill" even showing a purchase for installation of navigation, back up camera, and Sirius xm satellite radio.
Desired Settlement: I would like to just return the vehicle and get the full amount of money paid back to me to take my business elsewhere. For i went here to simply keep my money in my community.
In regards to reference ID #******* 1 would like to address the consumers concerns. At Interstate Ford, we have each vehicles miles per gallon printed on the window sticker. This information is populated from the government statistics. The sticker is placed in the customer's glove box. Enclosed are several documents that the customer signed that supports the transaction of what she paid and added to the vehicle. As far as the aftermarket navigation system with back up camera, this was disclosed on the initial numbers and buyers order, and we split the cost per our agreement. I have printed off the price from Auto Trader for $15000 as well as the receipt from Car Toys for $1387.00. On the initial numbers and buyers order you can see we split the cost. The blank document that the customer signed was a extra Power of Attorney. We do this as a precaution in case the original is miss typed so we do not have to inconvenience the customer in the future. There is always an original signed. As far as the odometer on the extended warranty, the warranty company allows supporting documents such as the Buyers Order or Bill of Sale.
