    I’m lost in the direction I should go…. IN September of 2005, I purchased a New Ford Mustang..
    On November the 20th, I brought it into Pinewood Ford to have a back window louver reattached.. On november the 21st, My husband received a call from Pinewood Ford stating that the mustang was hit. Now no one is excepting responsiblity for the damages…. WHAT DO I DO….. This is the only Ford I have owned.. I was so excited when Ford made this move to bring back the old style… I’v even gone as far as customizing the mustang, and showing it in local car shows… I feel so let down by Ford…. I have a damaged Mustang and no one wants to fix it……

    On November 29, 2006 very dear friends of mine went to Holiday Ford in Peterborough and purchased a brand new 4 door F-150, there names are Sean and Christina Outingdyke from Havelock, they have a 18 month old daughter,and Christina is 8 months pregnant with her second child, they both signed a lease for the truck for three years, they received the truck on or around Dec 3, 2006, On Dec 20,2006 Sean Outingdyke was tragically killed in a work related accident when a 40 foot tree fell on him. Both Christina and Sean did not sign for the insurance to cover the truck in case of a death, which really is to bad but whats done is done, however when Christina received a call from the salesman from Holiday Ford, Dave Smith, he told her that he is just the “messenger” and that if she could not afford the truck he would come pick it up, for the truck would be taken to an auction to be sold for not near what it is worth, and that she would be responsible for the rest owing, Sean and Christina put $2000.00 down on the truck, and also payed for a tonneau cover and window flares. Christina is, as you can imagine,trying to deal with the whole reality of how her life and the lives of her daughter and unborn child are going to be from now on, She has made calls to Ford Canada,and was told there is nothing anybody can do for her, now the truck has to go back to the dealership, which is the right thing to do because she cannot afford it obviously, but why under these tragic conditions does she have to make up the cost still owing on a truck that she no longer has and that she can’t get any of her money back that was put into upgrades by he deceased husband, My God is there any way that you can help her out with this “mess” that she did not ask for, she is very concerned on how she is going to feed her children, and really doesn’t need the added stress of worrying on how to pay for a truck that she will no longer have!
    Thanks for your time,

    In your message you asked for help with this. I am not sure there is anything I can do… are you asking for help from me or from the Hook me Up community?

    Thanks for your reply Rico,
    I just wanted to get a hold of somebody at Ford, like the CEO himself to see if there was anyway that he could help my friend. And explain to him what the dealership is trying to do to Christina during this difficult time.
    Thanks so much,

The dealership (Cambrian Ford) is giving me the runaround and not answering my questions.(Whats being done about the problem). I need to speak with someone who can do something because as of right now I feel I’m getting RIPPED OFF!!!!! I need some answers.
