History
Got the car from Carmax in 2016 when my 1999 Lincoln Town Car finally quit on me. The Fusion had 57k on it when I purchased it. I also purchased the Carmax warranty up to 150k Miles. I pay a $300.00 deductible and they will fix nearly anything up to $2,400.00. Here are the issues I've had with the vehicle so far. I wish I had the mileage at the time of the repairs, but I am out of town for work.

1. Within 30 days, the main caliper bolt broke and was forced to get it towed - Repaired by Carmax.
2. Lower-Forward Control Arm had play. - Replaced by a trusted Mechanic and used my Ext Warranty.
3. Driver Side CV Axles had 3 inches of play. Replace myself.
-------- The repairs below happened withing the past 3 weeks ------- (thunking.clunking noise while parked and the steering wheel is rotated. Also, happens over bumps, rough roads, and when breaking it veers one way.
4. Replaced 2 motor mounts and the transmission mount. Same mechanic as 2 under extended warranty. After repair, the noise described above was still there. Kept it there for a day and they didn't find anything.

5. Took it to our family mechanic (he is very honest, but VERY expensive and doesn't deal with extended coverage warranty's) and he kept it for a day, test drove it 2 times, and looked at the steering. He said it was the rack and pinon (which my car doesn't qualify for the recall as it was manufactured 3 days before the vehicles that a eligible). So after talking to him, he accepted the extended warranty and $300.00 later, the noise was still there.. I am taking it back to him on Monday and he said they would look at it again.
