Can I be refunded for a AWD used car that was advertised as RWD?

Answered by CarsGuide 17 May 2016

I would think your chances are good, if you can show that you bought it believing it to be RWD. From what you have told us the car was incorrectly described in the advertisement and in the paperwork, so you should be entitled to get you money back on the basis that the dealer misrepresented the car to you. Go and talk to him and try to work out a satisfactory resolution.

Broken hinge in Territory

Answered by CarsGuide 31 Jul 2015

It’s not a recall situation, recalls are mostly about safety and a broken hinge does not constitute a safety concern. It is a 10-year-old car and sometimes things fail on old cars. I would take the dealer’s advice and have a panel shop quote on repairing it.

2004 Territory known problems?

Answered by CarsGuide 26 Dec 2014

The main one is worn front suspension ball joints. You would expect that it has had the ball joints replaced once in that time, but you can expect to have to do them regularly, at intervals of between 40,000 and 80,000 km for the rest of the car’s life. Another to look for is worn diff mounting bushes. Early Territorys like yours also had issues with rust in the engine bay, around the fuel filler, and around the rear windows, which was due to poor painting.

2004 Ford Territory vibration

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Sep 2012

It's not possible to diagnose the problem from afar, you need to find a mechanic you trust and have him check for the cause. I wouldn't rush into changing the engine mounts in the hope it fixes it.

Ask Smithy Xtra Ford Territory window seals

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Aug 2010

We have had reports of problems with window seals on the Territory in the past, but not for some time. I don’t believe Ford had a recall for them, but I would talk to a Ford dealer about what action might be taken to address your problem.
