Was your lemon law return a Mercedes? Ours was. They couldn't fix an EFI problem. We gave them months and maybe 15 returns for repair. It was so bad, when we wrote the demand letter, MBZ of NA didn't even blink. They gave us every penny we had into it and was very cheerful about the process, it was that bad a problem.I posted my thoughts, now a couple of pages back, that even ONE of the things you listed would be a "no go" for me.
The things you are listing are in most cases pretty bad and inexcusable, but are "exterior". So, let me just add this. IF these are exterior issues, "fit and finish" of relatively easy to get right things (when the vehicle was built - if they even tried - what is it they say, "Built FORD Tough?" HA!)... but if they had that much trouble with these things, imagine the build of an engine or transmission???
I'd be asking for my money back on this. This is truly a LEMON. And I'd be ready to get involved with an attorney. Here in CA (my location) you have to meet a few criteria before you can go lemon law on them, but I'll bet, based on the number of defects you'll have no problem reaching that threshold.
I delt w/ a lemon law situation with another very well known manufacturer, one that many think of as building some very defect free automobiles. That vehicle had an 'issue' that they couldn't fix after many visits to service and after they had had my 'truck' for nearly 60 days trying to 'fix' something that should have been done right when the vehicle was built. When that vehicle was finally bought back it had less than 2k miles on it. It is what I had before I bought my RANGER. What is scary is, the problem with that vehicle was a "window issue / leak" and.... now what do we have with Broncos and Rangers (including mine)? A widow issue / recall. So.... let's see if FORD can get it right. Otherwise, I still have the phone number of my lawyer.
I'd get rid of your Ranger ASAP. It will NEVER be right. You bought a BRAND NEW CAR, it should act like it. What you are in for trying to get all of this "fixed" is utter BS. Your dealer AND Ford owes you an apology, and in my opinion, your money back too.
