A DANCER'S LIFE




" BLOOD, SWEAT and TULLE "





I love to dance
It's cathartic and completes me
It's romantic and sweeps me
It's painful and tedious
It's emotional and fleeting
It brings out my inner soul
It makes me feel whole 
But I dance for I must
To express my true essence
And become one.

To Mark Fields,



I do not appreciate being pawned off yet another time to an outside contractor working for Ford Motor products.  Kimberly MIncey works for Minacs and calls herself the RAV Manager. However, she is a manager at Minacs and NOT Ford Motor Company and as such has no authority to make or change their corporate policy.  Further she is making statements that are untruthful or she is just lying.

 We have been told many stories and runarounds  by all of the people that you have referred us.  Lynn said they are going by RAV guidelines. The NHSTA and the lemon law division in CT has absolutely no idea what she is talking about as this does not exist under their jurisdiction. Kim Mincey emailed us that the guidelines are now called the replacement manufacturer buyback guidelines and that they “are determined by the Better Business Bureau for the State of Connecticut”. I just called them. They not only never heard of these “guidelines” but they have absolutely nothing to do with any aspect of buybacks. We also contacted a law firm specializing in this area of the law and they concurred that no such thing exists. We told her we wanted a 2016 and she said that “2016’s are not available at this time”. Well there are many, many dealerships in Ct that have them in stock and available. Attached is proof of that fact. Again she is ignorant of the issues and is uninformed to be handling our case. Her sending an email stating that the agreement mailed to us was a firm and final offer means nothing as she is, again I repeat,  an outside contractor who is not part of The Ford Motor Company.

 We are tired of the run around and being told things that simply don’t exist. If the statements being made are mandated by Ford Motor Company then they can amend them as these are not mandated by federal or state law. The offer being made leaves us no better off or worse than if we went directly to a dealership ourselves. Again, I stress that it behooves The Ford Motor Company to contact us with an agreement that meets with our approval or simply send us check for the FULL amount (not the MSRP) that we paid for our vehicle including sales tax which is mandated by the state. Our car is unsafe to drive much longer as verified by the 11th recall we just received in the mail. We are trying to work with you before contacting our lawyer and the State of Connecticut. WE HAVE FINALLY HIT THE WALL WITH FORD MOTOR COMPANY and will fight this until we are satisfied.

Sincerely,

Harvey Edwards
Eleanor Edwards

Mark Fields
Ford Motor Company

One American RoadDearborn, MI 48126

To Mr. Mark Fields,  

We have owned our 2013 Ford Fusion SE Vin number XXXXXXX7XDR196872 for two years this May and paid several thousands of dollars extra for a one hundred twenty five thousand mile bumper to bumper warranty or six years whichever comes first. Up to this winter it has been in the shop seven times because of a faulty transmission. The second dealership, Courtesy Ford, that I went to assured me that they would fix it, install a new transmission or, as in the past, would give me a new car. They spoke to the district manager who concurred. However, I got the car back with not only nothing being done but they said they wouldn't even try to fix it in the future - ever. They said that they could not fix my transmission as it is a flaw within and it is the design of the transmission that is causing the problem. The problem is getting progressively worse. The transmission slips, goes into neutral briefly before engaging or it bangs into the next gear. My fear is that at some point it will not shift at all. I have met with many Fusion owners all with the same problem.

A bigger problem arose last week when the left rear started making loud rumbling noises. I took it upon myself to see if anything was moving around in the trunk. I found nothing that would have made that sound. I then went back to Courtesy Ford and they took it for a test drive and confirmed that the noise I heard was indeed something that needed to be investigated. I left the car there and several days later they called to inform me that my vehicle was ready to be picked up. To my surprise they said that the shock absorber and mount was bad and they had to replace it. I was aghast as I realized that I was driving a two year old car that could be a death trap. If the shock broke loose this could have caused an accident resulting in injury or death. Now if the left one was malfunctioning what is to say that the right shock would also fall apart.? At this point I fear driving as it is like waiting for the other shoe to drop. With my extended warranty, Ford is responsible from bumper to bumper and every part in-between. They also had the audacity to present me with a bill for $106 which they said was the deductible on my extended warranty. WHEN I FIRST BOUGHT THE CAR NOTHING WAS EVER mentioned OR DISCLOSED about a deductible only that the car was covered bumper to bumper and every part in-between for 125,000 miles or six years.

I went to an independent car repair shop and two mechanics said that they have seen the same problem in many other ford vehicles that are a few years older. They said they have never seen this in a two year old car. Further, they said that they have seen the shock fall away from the mount and puncture the tire causing a blow-out. Any of this scenarios being a potentially life threatening incident.

Because of the repeated visits to the two car dealerships that are documented on Carmax the value of my vehicle has fallen far below blue book.  About six months ago, out of anger and frustration, I went back to the second Ford dealership and was about to trade my car in for a foreign car and was only offered $12,000 a loss of about $15,000 and $5,000 less than blue book.

So now we have a situation that must be resolved to my satisfaction. I am a professional and I expect others that I deal with, individuals, businesses and corporations to act in a similar manner. I expect perfection in myself and in others. I expect everyone to believe and stand behind their products and to correct any errors that may have been made. I will not tolerate being ignored or given lame excuses. I fight for what I believe is the right thing to do and I will not go away until this problem is fixed correctly.

I’m sure that Ford does not want any unfavorable publicity however I have no problem contacting the many Ford owners that have the same problem. Another very public recall or class action suit, I’m sure, is not something that Ford would consider helpful to their bottom line. I have spent twenty seven thousand dollars plus all the time and inconvenience running back and forth to the dealership. As CEO of Ford the buck stops with you. It's time for Ford to stand behind their cars. It’s time to act now and be proactive before a death occurs because of your inaction.

Here are your options. You can replace this vehicle with a brand new 2015 Ford Fusion SE with the same options that I purchased and with the newly designed transmission, second you can refund every penny from day one that I have spent purchasing this vehicle or lastly, which I have no problem doing, is to settle this in court. Understand, I just settled a copyright infringement case against Oprah Winfrey and won.

I expect to hear back from you, not an underling, not your secretary and no delays or lame excuses before the end of next week, June 5, 2015. I promise you that until this is resolved to my satisfaction it will not only go away, but I will make sure the public becomes aware of your non- commitment to Ford Corporation and that you DO NOT STAND BEHIND YOUR PRODUCT. The decision is yours.
Sincerely,
Harvey Edwards

FYI

This morning when I put the car in reverse to back out of my garage, without touching the gas pedal, not only did the car slam into reverse but it very immediately accelerated  3-4 feet. Very, very dangerous.

Documented transmission problems with the Ford Fusion is almost tied with first place as the biggest defect with this car. When is something going to be done about this???? You have until Friday which is only 2 days away.

Please do not have Lynne Buckmen contact me as I have nothing to say to her. Her offer is an insult and rejected.

I was surprised and dismayed that you forwarded my email to Ms. Buckman. However, as she will be out of the office tomorrow and Friday, my deadline, I am sending this reply to you in a last ditch effort for you to actually forward this to Mark Fields or another executive with the intelligence to understand the sincerity and the seriousness of the content of my emails. I'm sure Ford is aware that there is an issue with their transmission and denying the severity does not make the problem or the potential for tragedy go away.

Every conversation, message and email that I hare received from Ms. Buckman indicates that she is not the person responsible for making any decision but merely the messenger. I don't believe, no actually I know that she did not grasp the severity of this mornings event nor did she comprehend the fact that the dealership has refused to do any further work on this transmission as her last message was "why don't I bring the car into the dealership for them to look at the transmission". Further, It was absolute insanity for her to suggest that I pay Ford anymore money for them to fix this dangerous situation.

If my wife or grandchild had been behind the car this morning they would now be in the hospital or dead. Is that what Ford is waiting for? The issue with this car has quickly morphed from annoyance, inconvenience and malfunction to a life threatening situation. Cars, especially two-year old cars, are not supposed to have parts such as shocks and mounts come loose, they are not supposed to have transmissions that are not only not stable but are inherently dangerous.

The fact that my dealership has said that they will not and cannot fix this car speaks volumes. Again, I ask where is Ford's commitment??

Ford already has class action suits against them do they really want another lawsuit??? If I or anyone in my family is injured or worse because of their inaction is Ford really ready for a multi-million dollar lawsuit?? I'm really trying to be patient and give Ford every opportunity to do the right thing before Friday. Believe me when I say I am not bluffing.

I hope that you will finally take this seriously and forward this to Mark Fields.

Dear Ms. Hall,

Since we have not heard back from you concerning the email we sent you yesterday and Ms. Buckman is out of the office, who we would not deal with, it's in your hands now and one day to go. I was hoping we could resolve this amicably and honorably but that's up to you.

Dear Ms. Buckman,

I am confused by your email.
1.  What exactly is your definition of a "discretionary replacement vehicle"? You are aware because of all the problems that we have had with our car's transmission and because the shock and mount had to be replaced it can not be another 2013 as we are not looking to move from one problem car to another.
2. Why are you charging me anything for mileage as this is not a leased vehicle?
3. Are you asking me for the  $8,166.00 and how did you arrive at that figure?
4.There is no additional upgrade cost from my 2013 Fusion SE to the 2015 Fusion SE. I went to a dealership on Sunday and verified this. Actually, the cost of a new 2015 is thousands less than what I paid for my 2013. He was also in shock when I told him about the mount and the shock absorber that needed to be replaced and he confirmed the high probability that the other side would also fail resulting in a major accident.
I need you to be extremely explicit in your answers. I need to hear from you Monday morning June, 8, by noon before I go forward.



Harvey Edwards

Dear Karen,



I cannot except your off as I was told by the person who first took the case on that I would not have to pay a penny out of my pocket. Do your due diligence, find out who I spoke with and verify it. The first person who emailed me was Marcia Hall,(M.A.) and she passed it along to the person who told me that NOT A PENNY OUT OF MY POCKET. Then you will understand why I stand firm.

HONOR OUR VETERANS
VS 
DISHONORABLE REPUBLICANS

The most honorable men and women we have in America are our VETERANS and the military now serving who are Protecting our citizens with their bravery above and beyond the call of duty. These great Americans put their lives on the line every day without hesitation. Whether it was wars, disasters, catastrophes or any threat against American citizens they stood tall to the call. Unless you have been on the front lines you can never ever understand what these brave men and women faced both physically and mentally. Veterans are the backbone that keeps America safe and secure amongst all odds. We owe them our lives for it is our veterans that make it possible for every man, woman, and child to sleep soundly at night knowing that twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week we are protected. Veterans, by law, deserve every possible opportunity that our government can provide including but not limited to medical care, financial aid, mental support, and a future for themselves and their families. When they return back to civilian life we must be there for THEM making sure the STRESS they endured during their time in the military service is absolved. "WE THE PEOPLE" have an obligation to them for a life free of stress, the BEST medical and emotional care they may require and a future, as they have put their lives on the line for us. WE AT THE LEAST, OWE THEM THAT.

THEY ARE THE REAL HERO'S OF AMERICA, YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW.




The day we called this land AMERICA is the day obligations to it's citizens by politicians representing and caring for Americans became one in the same. Sadly this is not the case now. 

The problem is that most Republican politicians never served in the military or have been in combat or on the front line in WAR. All those great patriotic courageous citizens who enlisted to protect our country are controlled by orders they have sworn to uphold that are generated by politicians who willingly put them in HARMS WAY and then return to a nice safe haven at home. This is extremely idiotic for they know zero about the repercussions that our great VETERANS and those presently serving face every day and the permanent suffering both physically and mentally that affect their life and that of their families. Our soldiers are the true HERO'S of America. 

We were exploited by The Republican Party at our most vulnerable state when 9/11 occurred. George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and others in The Republican Party saw a chance to deceive the American people by giving false information concerning weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. This was presented to us on a jumbo screen at the United Nations presented by General Colin L. Powell. A man who we all believed knew the truth about Iraq. Bush and Cheney knew he could sell the WAR if General Powell gave the presentation on February 5th, 2003 as FACT. Americans now know the truth about Iraq and no weapons of mass destruction were found and Iraq never had any intention of going to WAR with America. Thus General Colin Powell was duped and because of that Colin Powell witnessed the biggest lie in US history. He watched our HERO'S die in Iraq in a WAR that we had no right to start, period. He also witnessed the real EVIL of The Republican Party under monsters Bush and Cheney. It was at that moment that commonsense took over and he proudly left The Republican Party. I and most Americans would like and need all those responsible for this Illegal war against Iraq on by our government and we know who they are and it began at the TOP.

The Republican's, the war mongers, who are so eager to send our men and women to the front line to die, to become wounded and maimed, who denounce anyone who dares to criticize their policies, who cry traitor if we don't wave the flag are the first to turn their collective backs when our brave men and women return home. They are the traitors. They do not welcome back by our veterans with open arms. No - All the republicans, except for 6, voted against The Veteran's Bill. They voted against the constitution. They voted to deny our Veterans the "right to LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS".


"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." 






This is the time to Honor and support our VETERANS for they are our security blanket that keeps America STRONG.......  



               
We thank all our VETERANS and men and women now serving with all our hearts for without you AMERICA WOULD NOT EXIST.




"GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES MILITARY."





 A MUST WATCH - A MAN WITH  MORE COMMONSENSE THAN ANY OTHER POLITICIAN AND VOYED AGAINST THE WAR ! 



THE TRUTH IS STARING YOU IN YOUR FACE.
What political Party will vote against taking care of our American VETERANS AND THOSE SERVING IN THE MILITARY NOW ?
JUST LOOK IT UP.

Which PoliTical Party VOTED AGAINST the VETERANS BILL
IN 2014 ?

NOW YOU KNOW WHICH PARTY TO VOTE FOR IN 2016.








TIME TO RID OURSELVES OF THE
 WAR MONGERS
THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
FIGHT THE REPUBLICAN BLIGHT.

AND




" BRING BACK THE AMERICA
 WE LOVE "


I know GOD would say take care of your family first and the VETERANS are our family. We must make sure they are taken care of whatever the cost.
