Now...you want to talk about a car maufacture that
have alot of issues, then look at the Chrysler
products of 60's and ealy 70's.
Chryslers all had build sheets on them, which were
under the rear seat part of the rear seat. This would
show what were put on the car. Now, I cannot tell you
how many times I have found were not showing
addittions to the car. Man o man, the outcrys for this
and that not correct.
Come to find out, dealerships were given heavy hands
to do what it took to sell the cars. They would add so
many options, even from items that were 2 years old
just to sell the car.
My SD1 that I bought, was from the original owner of
the car AND the dealership, and do you know what he
Fords...yep and this was one of 2 he got NEW. he could
not sell this car for anything, so he kept it. I have
a copy of the dealership which it was with and we
thought c pillar vinyl pieces were wierd.
