Well, it is over, at least the car has been replaced. My wife and I dropped off the Fusion Energi at the dealership yesterday and drove the 2016 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid home. Ford bought the Fusion back and replaced it with the new MKZ. There are still some sketchy parts to what went down. It seems that Ford went out of its way to never admit to the car being a Lemon. In fact I was told it "was not under the lemon law" but just a buy-back. I still have a couple of open items (at least in my mind). There were a couple of items that were supposed to be reimbursed (according to Connecticut's Lemon Law) that Ford did not cover even though I supplied receipts for the items. The dealership tried to contact the Ford Re-Acquired Vehicle Team but they did not answer the call and also did not return the call within an hour. Because of this the dealership said they would eat the cost of the extra keys I had purchased for the Energi and I would contact the RAV Team with my other complaints/concerns. It seems to me that Ford did everything it could to avoid the association with the Lemon Law. Connecticut is very specific about what happens to both the vehicle and the title associated with a vehicle that is determined to be a Lemon.
For some reason I cannot paste into the Reply area so I have attached a document outlining what has to be done after a vehicle is deemed a Lemon in CT:
Because of the requirements, I believe Ford did not want to go through the arbitration process and just repurchased the car.
There are still some things I intend to do to get back the additional items Ford did not address (even though I supplied receipts multiple times).
The GREAT NEWS is that I have a new 2016 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid in the garage!
