I updated my case with them today. Told them about my "social media" post, and that I plan to take it to the GM dealer next door and trade it for a reliable vehicle.
1. Fight Ford with Lawyers, Expensive
2. Take the Dealer Buy back offer of $8,000, I am out $4,500 and no car
3. Trade it at GM, still out $4,500 but have a car
4. Keep it parked, and build equity (Only use for emergency)
Eventually I need to replace my current work car, it has 240,000 miles on it. I hope to drive it to 300K or the wheels fall off, which ever comes first.
