    Ford: Refusing to help Katrina Victims

    I bought my 2000 Ford Explorer from Butch Oustalet Ford in Gulfport Mississippi in May 2000. I lost everything I owned including my Explorer in Hurricane Katrina.

    My insurance agent did not delete Ford as a lien holder despite the fact that I paid it off in 2003. Despite two phone calls since yesterday Ford has been unable to do what Toyota did for me in 5 minutes, fax a lien release with my claim number on it to State Farm.

    I guess I shouldn't be surprised at Ford's ineptitude, my Explorer came with bad tires, a rear wiper that never worked right and electronic locks that would periodically go "Sybil" on me. Owning a Ford a simply been a nightmare. Now Ford haunts me from my vehicles grave in West Gulfport Mississippi. I just want to put the pieces of my life back together.

    I lost not only my home but also my business so I have nothing but time on my hands. I intend to haunt this board and Ford Motor Company until they help me. How can a simple fax be such a task?????

    • Check the float of each company... Ford dwarfs Toyota in shares.

      Ford value 1 trillion
      Toyota value 12�

    • FORD---$10 a share
      TOYOTA---$84
      Who's sucking now!!!!

      • I'm understanding that they have sent you the proper documents but your fax machine must be down. They aren't getting a "recieved" reply on their end. Can you call them and give them another "Fax" phone # you can recieve from?

      • Well guys, another day is gone and I guess I haven't begged the folks at Ford enough for my lien release. My time in Ford hell continues.

    • Dear John
      What you can do is... take out that Toyota engine and install a F-150 engine in it's place. You should be happy with the results.

      Salut�

    • Now, after first asking why he didnt evacuate (and that was after telling us that Recalls are good for Ford), now Cathy sits behind her computer and berates a hurricane survivor as to why he isnt helping move things.

      And Cathy is ashamed of the hurrican survivor?

      Hoooboy.

    • The profits go to the top of what? Toyota is no different than any company. Profits get paid out in dividends, banked, used for expansion, R&D, etc. Or do you imagine that they just divvy it up among the top officers? Check out the salaries of Japanese car companies' executives compared to Ford. Buying a domestic-built car from a Japanese corporation helps our economy.

    • Fly...the new gig is going pretty cool. Somedays are busy, others are not.

      Learning alot of about incarceration and institutions. It sure is a good feeling when the gates open and you are allowed to just walk out of em.

      Might be able to extend this into a long term job....but not sure if I want to.

    • No, but like Ford the profits go to the top. Where is that, Toyota of U.S.A.?

    • No kidding? All those workers in the factory built the car for nothing? All the American suppliers built the parts for free? The salesman didn't get a commission? The dealership made nothing on the deal? Toyota stockholders are all located in Japan?
