I have been driving the less in the thirty days after purchasing it and it started making loud squeaking noise, I told the dealer about it and he said it wasn't anything major it does it when you first start the car. It continue to get louder so I had a certified person to check out the noise. When I let him listen to the car, he looked under the hood and noticed that the idler pulley was leaning to the side and that he didn't how know I could drive the car with the idler pulley leaning. I called the dealer right then and explained to him what was going on. He then told me that he couldn't do anything about it because it has no warranty. He suggested that I let someone else to put it on. When I did what he told me the person who checked out the said that it was broken and I needed to take back to the dealership. I had the car towed because I couldn't no longer drive it. The company told me that the person who checked out my car broke it. I pulled up the car fax on the car and found out that the idler pulley broke on the car a year prior before I purchase it. I want the dealership to be responsible for fixing my car.

My transmission was acting funny and the check engine light had come on earlier in the day but went away. I took my car to Ford and was told the check engine light was from the gas cap and they couldn't get the problem with the transmission to duplicate. The car's RPM's stay up around 2000 RPM's on a cold start and the when shifting gears they will go up to around 3 and hold for a long period of time before it shifts. I drove a manual for 12 years and I know that this should not happen with an automatic transmission. I showed the dealer the tsb concerning the RPM issue but they didn't care. I started researching the issue online and have found this is a growing problem. I just wonder how many people haven't made their voices heard or haven't experienced the issue yet. Ford needs to fix this problem with the transmission before it gets some killed.
