Guess no found this interesting huh?

Btw I will never go to that Ford again.they worked on my abs on my 2004 explorer.it took them 2 1/2 days to diagnose it.they told me at the time that they had to go over everything.what it was doing the abs light would kick on and pulse the breaks creating a bad shake while driving and not even touching the breaks.anyways it turned out to be the abs pressure switch.

So here I am 2 months later and my abs light comes on and stays on.it is now making my auto 4 wheel drive kick on for no reason.they warranty there work and parts for 12 months/12000 miles.so I took it back assuming it had to be something they touched because they touched everything.lol.before I even get home 15 minutes away(right before closing) they call me and say it was not related.go figure.then they ask do u want us to do further testing.soon this tells me they don't know the problem but they do magically know its not related.so I tell them no further testing ill pick it up Tomorow.

The next day I call off from work because I got some nasty flu.I get a phone call at about 9:00 am and Ford says we found the problem do u want us to fix it?I said uhh...... I told u I would pick it up today. He says ok that will be 100$.the rest of that 5 mins of conversation was nothing but 4 letter words.

So I go up there, after some more 4 letters I just go to pay anyway.my card gets some error message.I call the bank to find out why and there was suspicious charges so the stopped it for me.thank God because they were fraud.so I had to go to the bank make a withdraw.I finally get my car back then 1 hour later my wife looses her card. AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry for the long story but no ever go to Paul heuring Ford!!

Some lessons learned the hard way. Glad that dealer is nowhere near me.

I'd go to another dealer. Fortunately where I am they have more competition, there are at-lest 4 dealers within 15 miles of me. Not to mention some great independent shops.

Too funny about the Chevy's, I guess they just couldn't get rid of them on their lot so now off to Auction. If you're going to buy now is the time. Check out the MKT as well both are cool looking cars though.

The MKT is just the Lincoln version of the Flex. (Just a tad bit more money.) It's just cool looking both are cool. You know the MCA offers xplan pricing, or they did last year, I think.
Edit: I used to have the same issue when autonation ran my nearest local dealership, service was ridiculously expensive.
