They can keep fixing it until it's right, or straight out replace it like you said.
I also see where he's coming from. But in my opinion I can't see the logic in buying a new truck, only to trade it in and in turn spending more money. But I guess if you have a disposable income, there's only time being wasted. But for me, I just would of spent the time doing research and getting facts before wasting my time with another salesperson or dealership, which is why instead of just selling my ''old'' Caliber, I did research and threatened to dealership who in-turn gave me a doner vehicle while my car was in the shop and then they inevidably gave me a replacement vehicle since they couldn't track down the source of the problems I had.
And I guess for me, as a person who buy's both new and used vehicles a lot. I just don't see it being honorable in any way to pawn a vehicle off that you know has problems to someone else who may not know what issues they're getting into and may not have the funds to get the problem taken care of. It's happened too many times and I can guarentee that had I known the stooge who owned my '02 F150 before me, I would of smacked them with the common sense tree and tripped them with the honor stick ('02 F150...30 days into the ownership of the vehicle, the transmission blew, then he truck blew a tire, a shock obsorber popped off the axle, and the engine had a bad lifter...lets not forget the fact that I found a youtube video of the previous owner doing donuts in a parkinglot and running over curbs in what was now my truck).
Granted, I am not trying to be insultive, even though there's a large margin to shove a few comments in. I'm just saying if I was in his shoes, I would of just made the dealership and Fords day hard with the combined efforts of research and motivation instead of pawning the truck off to an unsuspecting dealership or potential buyer.
