60k servicing

Y car is coming up n the 60k service. I called the Ford dealer & they gave me a quote of 815$!!! Of course there's a list f things they check. Should I get it serviced at any other place instead? I need it looked at properly to make sure no problems come up right after the warranty expires at 60k

Re: 60k servicing

I bought my Stang used, 32,332 miles and got a $2,500 service package. You did not? It
covers a lot of the drive train and clearcoat care by Blue Coral.

Re: 60k servicing

the ford dealership will charge more for the services, but you get someone that knows the car at least.... what all is on the list~

for 60k you really need to:

transmission serviced,
Engine oil/filter
Coolant serviced (probably)

thats the main things

No. No service package.

There was a long list. HVAC flush or something, etc.

I called a local reputable automotive shop and they check the systems for free and replace only faulty items but ask us before dong anything first.

I would go to a shop and ask for a complete inspection as if you were going to buy the car.

Well, I got the estimate. They called the dealership and apparently, though I have miles left, my warranty expired in May.

They found a small leak in the transmission casing.

They said we need to do:
Fuel filter replacement
Spark plugs
Fuel induction service
Transmission service
Rear differential service
