Received mail from the local ford service center offering a special deal on a service for the territory. 

 

Read it over, $299 for an oil/filter change , 'free' wash (how can they say free when you are paying $299), and checking a few bits like belts/fluid levels/wipers/suspension/steering.   Many of these checks would be included in a standard WOF check anyway.

 

From what I can tell, this is basically $299 for an oil/filter change.  I wonder how much an oil change from a non-affiliated mechanic would cost for a territory. Might look into that.

You are probably saving 99c.
Hence the special deal.
They also adjust everything there is to be adjusted according to your service schedule.




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Adjustments cost extra as they are not specifically included in the deal.

 

I phoned oil changers, they'll do it for $149 .

 

But, i'll probably still take it to ford as i am a sucker haha.  

 

I've always had it service by them but I don't think they have been oiling the hinges on the rear window gas struts as the hinge snapped last year. I'm guessing extra stress due to not being oiled.
