One other point I'd like to add for your consideration: I Can almost guarantee you that misaligned door is not coming like that from the factory, there was damage to that panel/door and someone (without full disclosure to you, the buyer) attempted to repair it and pass it on to you... if the dealership had received that car from factory damaged, those concerns would have been addressed immediately during delivery to both the company delivering the merchandise and the factory!
Seems the dealership somehow caused that damage, which appears logical why they would NOT apply a claim against the shipping company OR Ford!
Your issue with this car and all corresponding legal matters in this regard should be directed to the selling dealer by ANY competent lawyer.... Also, lawyer will go after them for all fees and disbursements,so they would want to iron this out ASAP rather than let this expense ballon out of control .... in my mind, this goes well beyond small claims court, because of the FULL amount of purchase for this auto.
I'm not a lawyer, but have been in this position many times and have always acted in good faith to protect MY clients that have put their trust in my handling THEIR merchandise.
If we, ( my company) caused ANY damages, I will apply a claim to MY insurance for full coverage, if damages are caused by others, shipping co, manufacturer, quality control ect) I will deal with the party in question myself... as a matter of fairness to all concerned, all material that comes through our doors is subjected to a FULL and through quality check,as it arrives,then and only then will we sign off on receiving goods in good condition.
Just offering you food for thought!
