About

This was the first car i fell in love with, was my first car i ever really wanted so when it came up forsale as a lease return at skaha ford in penticton i picked it up.

The first day i started to grind gears ad they blamed it on my driving. So they take it back in 2 days later and change the tranny fluid. tell me it's all better and i take off happy..well till about half way home and it starts grinding again... so it goes back in and they pull the tranny and replace gear 2, 3, 5 and some other crap i don't remember.. and fixed the clutch or so they said.

time goes on .. car starts to geuss worse again and by this time i had moved to vancouver bc . So after alot of slipping clutch i take it into a dealership on the coast and they tell me they never changed/milled the flywheel and my clutch was toast again. So a 1200 dollar bill that ford in penticton was not willing to pay. So off to court we went were there head mechanic tried to say i was a street racer and beat on the car. The judge didn't like that at all, his son was my age and asked the guy does that apply to all kids? Also on a side note. when i traded in my escort for this probe they said on paper that they had never seen a car come back in such great shape.. thanks MOM.. haha my parents came with to make sure i didn't get screwed. long ass story short i won the case ;)
