I had a similar experience in the 80's.

They actually sent me a customer satisfaction survey afterwards. I scrawled across it with red pen "I will never buy a !@#$%&* Ford again" and mailed it back.

Whenever I consider buying a new car I take the comparable Ford for a drive and tell my story to the salesman.
