Wheels.26

Buying new car

--------

{Wheels.26.156}: '85 VW Vanagon; '89 Mazda 323 {patrice} Mon, 19 Nov 2018 00:15:12 CST (39 lines)

What you might not realize, if you don't know me, is that me driving
the new rig home an hour and a half with new car smell could render
me unfit to drive.  The van, even though it is a stripped down
cargo,  will need to outgas for awhile before I can drive. There's
new front row upholstery and dash and headline in front to stink.
:-/

I know the Bumper to Bumper is 3 years and the powertrain is 5, but
then the dealer does a lifetime powertrain (I don't pay for it,
except in their fees and commissions, I guess) thr NAE NWAN, who
have some questionable comments on the BBB website, and a 'meh'
rating on Consumer Reports. (and I go by years, not miles because I
will put 3K a year on)

As for warranty, I just found this, which explains stuff better than
the brochure they gave me at dealer or the Ford website.  Doncha
wish I'd seen this earlier? ;-)

Seems there is tire warranty

"Unlike many other manufacturer warranties, the Ford New Vehicle
Limited Warranty also covers defected tires up to 36,000 miles. How
much you pay to replace your tires is determined by how many miles
you’ve driven:

1-12,000 miles: Ford covers 100% of the parts
12,001-24,000 miles: Ford covers 60% of the parts
21,001-36,000: Ford covers 30% of the parts"

hm.  I have emailed the dealer and asked him some tire questions
(make, model, warranty, cost of rims the Ford) and asked him to hold
off delivery can figure out winter tires.  I will also be calling my
credit union loan dept and asking about adding third party extended
warranty to my loan at a later date (that's the selling point with
dealer--they put a 100k mile/no time limit warranty--for me that is
my lifetime-- for things not in the power train one into your loan--
it's close to $3k so in the loan would be better for me...but there
are other companies that will take monthly payments later....)
