Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
OR
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

I HAVE NEVER BEEN ON ANY KIND OF A PUBLIC SITE EXCEPT FB AND THATS RARELY. WHILE IN THE HOSPITAL MY HUSBAND TOOK MY CAR TO A PRIVATE MECHANIC, THAT WAS FORD CERTIFIED.. HE FOUND THAT THE INTAKE NEEDED REPLACED AND CALLED FORD BUT THEY SAID NO RECALLS..

SO HE REPLACED THE INTAKE PART FROM OREILLYS... SHORTLY AFTER THE CAR STARTED MAKING FUNNY SOUNDS AND MY MACHANIC VERIFIED THAT THE DEFECTED PART FROM OREILLYS WAS INDEED WHAT BLEW MY MOTOR UP. THE STORE MGR. CAME TO HIS GARAGE AND VERIFIED THE PART AND THE DEFECT AND SEEN THE DAMAGE AND WITHIN 1 HR. RETURNED CALL TO MY MECHANIC AND OFFERED A 50K MOTOR FOR DAMAGE.... MY HUSBAND REFUSED AND BY THE TIME I GOT OUT OF THE HOSPITAL 7 DAYS LATER AND FOUND OUT ABOUT EVERYTHING, OREILLYS WOULD NOT RETURN CALLS, ANSWER LETTERS AND SUPPORT WAS A JOKE AND NOBODY FROM THE HEAD OFFICE, WOULD ANSWER THE PHONE, LET ALONE RETURN CALLS....

I PLEADED WITH THEM TO HONOR THEIR DEFECTED PART, THAT MY MUSTANG WAS A "DADDYS GIRL" GIFT AND HE WAS ON HOSPICE AND I HAD PROMISED HIM THAT HE AND I WOULD GET TO RIDE IN OUR "TANG" ONE MORE TIME...

** MY DADDY PASSED AWAY ON AUG 3, 2020 WITHOUT EVER GETTING TO DRIVE OUR CAR AGAIN...

*** I DONT KNOW HOW THIS WORKS BUT IF THERE IS ANYBODY THAT CAN HELP ME OR TELL ME WHAT DIRECTION I SHOULD GO... I WILL TRY OR DO ANYTHING,, I CANT AFFORD A NEW ENGINE, IM ON A FIXED INCOME WITH FAILING HEALTH AND A MUSTANG THAT WAS IN EXCELLANT CONDITION, 100K MILES AND NEVER HAD ANYTHING DONE EXCEPT MAINTENANCE WORK AND TIRES, SINCE DADDY BOUGHT IT IN 2002 AS THE 2ND OWNER...

MY MUSTANG WENT FROM "A-1" WITH A LITTLE VALUE, TO WORTHLESS AND NOW SITTING IN MY GARAGE SINCE FEB. 2020..

***IF ANYBODY HAS ANY SUGGESTIONS??? PLEASE HELP??? IVE TURNED TO YOU ALL BECAUSE ALL THE BIG COMPANIES THAT ARE AT FAULT, WILL NOT EVEN ANSWER MY CALLS... IF FORD WOULD HAVE DONE MY RECALL, THEN I WOULD NOT HAVE PLACED AN DEFECTED PART FROM OREILLYSIN IT, THAT BLEW IT UP!! WHO TO BLAME, FORD, OREILLYS OR THE INTAKE MANUFACTURER???

THANK YOU FOR ANY ADVICE,,, SLONE9294, KICKIN' IT IN TN
