Re: The butthurt thread

lol, nah they didn't have it too long... it's actually worse than I originally thought, there are a few gashes on that piece... but they cleaned it up and didn't look too bad. don't get me wrong they are still replacing it, but I will keep the old one in case I need it or someone wants one super cheap

********UPDATE********

Well looks like the dealer doesn't know how to order parts for their own cars, so they ended up ordering the CS fascia AND fog lights (which did not need to be replaced) from late model restoration supply, not that I care how much they spend on it, just saying.

They replaced the fascia and lights so I now have an extra fascia with fogs!!! It is a little scraped up but in otherwise good working order, honestly you wouldn't really notice it unless it was pointed out to you.

Who wants to buy a fascia with fogs?

I agree completely! I live equidistant between two Ford dealers. One is the biggest, highest volume dealer in town, and the other is basically out in the country, and is small time at best. When I need a part right now for my 12 year old F-150, I go to the high volume dealer. When I need any work done on either of our Fords, the vehicles go to the rural smaller dealer.

The cool thing about my small dealer is most of the guys working there in service have been there for many years. I know some of them by name even. I can roll in any day around 11:00 AM knowing they will likely be finishing up their morning jobs, and get an oil change, lube, and tire rotate without an appointment. They just take me right in. Try doing that a high volume dealer. They've also looked out for me for a couple of repairs on my F-150 that I know the high volume dealer would not have.

If I have a problem with my new Mustang after it gets here, I know where I will be taking it.

Re: The butthurt thread

I've had awful experiences with A Dodge dealer once and got raked over the coals at a CHevy dealer a few times. I swore them all off unless it was warranty work.

These guys are getting flat rate, they dont care...anymore. Get em in & get em out...thats all that matters.
