You have no idea the level of polite I kept it too with my dealer and Kyle. I'm venting on a forum now. Different story. As to where I bout it,dealers who treat people differently based on where they purchased are on their way out in this competitive business and if you do the same you may be doing something different to feed your family in the future. I paint for a living and I do an estimate for someone who had someone else do all their work in the past, I treat them like gold so I can do all of it in the future. If you find your job thankless, find a new one.

I understand, I'm just trying to help you, a decision has been made. a lot of places that have been doing things a certain way for 35 years are going out of business these days. If theres anything I can do for you or your family, let me know.

Ok, just looks like your chrome failure is caused by a caustic effect...soap, salt, etc.

The Ford refund check is going towards the purghase of a new Ram 1500.
I'm not an engine tester for Ford on my dime. And their customer service is NOT.

Trust me, we spent 30 minutes debating the fact. Running boards according to Ford are a wear item!
You need to keep debating with them them. Windshield wipers, clutch and brake linings, hoses and belts are wear items.

Your owners guide should have a detailed list of wear items and I'll bet that runnings aren't on it.

I tried and tried. Kyle told me that there is NO ONE above him that is a "customer resource." In other words, he was the final say in running boards. I wasn't allowed to talk to his boss or the warranty department as they aren't available to the public. Who else can I debate on this? Very frustrating...

Wagion has a very good reputation on FTE.Wagion has a very good reputation on FTE.Wagion has a very good reputation on FTE.
How much time you willing to put into it. Start sending emails and letters to board and CEO and everyone else you can find address for. Call Kyle everyday and ask if his boss is available today.

THE SQUEAKY WHEEL DOES GET THE GREASE!

There is a Ford customer service rep that monitors Ford on facebook. She will look into it but, I doubt she will be any help. But, you would be able to vent on another site. Expect some flak. As is this site they are mostly sheep believing that Ford can do no wrong.

That was a nice tip but your statement wasn't very polite. Many such as myself have had excellent experiences with Ford products and Ford's customer service. If one has had limited or no bad experiences, why bash the company?

The OP in my humble opinion has a legitimate gripe and Ford should step up and do the right thing. The OP was polite and articulate and justifiably pissed.

Many folks come here to vent and say, "I'll never buy another Ford"! Why would a Ford lover even give a statement like this the time of day?

Take a statement like that to another enthusiasts site and see if you can feel the love.
