Update... got call from the dealer towards the end of the work day.. He informed me that I need to replace my catalytic converter, that was causing the engine light to come on. And he also said that my clutch is bad. What's crazy is that I have an automatic. Come to find out that the car is actually a manual and there is mechanism in the transmission that automatically shifts. I knew they car had a weird shifting system but I never knew it's technically a manual vehicle. Anyways the catalytic converter won't be in until Wednesday which means I won't get my car back until Thursday morning... ugh!! You would think they would offer me a loaner car since it's a manufacturer defect but nope.. I mean I guess I could have been a dick but you know me.. I'm mister nice guy. What makes this worse is that my car is fairly new.. it's a 2013. Catalytic converters and clutches shouldn't be going out in a two year old car. This was my very first brand new car because I was tried of used cars needing repairs all the time. I guess I just have no luck with cars. I can say without a doubt that I will never buy a Ford again. But me being the eternal optimist, it's all covered under warranty so I won't have to pay a penny.
