First Service 14 GT

I am almost at 7K miles and I was just checking to see when the first service is due? To my understanding it is at 10K? And my car is manual if that makes a difference

That's up to you and what your dealer said. Wouldn't take my car to the dealer ever though just for #1

What exactly do you think needs serviced at 7000 miles? You're over thinking it, nothing needs to be done. Just drive it.

I don't think it needs to be but I thought there was the major service that is supposed to be done at 10K and then another at 30K and so on? My dads truck is every 15k

According to the dealer it's just to get an oil change and to do a tire rotation. That's what they told me yesterday.

If you take it somewhere and have them change the oil, watch them. Also do not let them use the **** in the big white bottle they use. I guarantee its not the oil you paid for.

If they do not have it in the regular 1qt bottles, make them go buy it, they will

Just took my 14 in for the first service at 4500 miles. To change oil, rotate the tires and wash the car it was $18.50.....at my local Ford dealer. I even went out to look at the tires while it was up on the rack just to make sure they looked like they were wearing ok. Their alignment guy came over and gave it a once over and said it was fine except the rear tires had 2/32 less tread...looked at me and laughed.
Oil is oil is oil, I don't care if it's synthetic or non, it gets changed every 5k miles. It took 8qts of 5/50w and filter. I bought the 5/50w at the dealer for $8.16 a quart for synthetic and paid $9.72 for the filter.........I thought it was a good deal.
I used to change the oil in the Maverick's engine/trans/rearend in after every 2or3 day race event.......the engine/trans/rear end lasted for almost 10 years without being torn down.....and still ran 9.80's.

Buy a set of ramps and change your own oil in the driveway. Hard to trust anybody else these days.

I guess it just depends if you want your warranty intact. If so I'd try and go to their parts counter an tell them you are going to be a loyal customer and would like Jobber Net on their Motorcraft 5/20w Premium Synthetic Blend or Full Synthetic and the same with the filter. I was a little surprised to hear from the Tech and read it in the manual that the TrakPak cars took 5/50w Full Synthetic..........I used to use 20/50w Mobile 1 in the race motor, and I know my bearing clearances were a lot more than this Coyote motor, and 8 quarts, that's as many quarts as the race motor had, Wow! The oil I used in mine was their 5/50w and it was $9.81/qt. list, I paid $8.16/qt. net, and the motor craft filter which is the same for TrakPak/non TrakPak cars was less than $10. If they say no, then it's up to you as to which brand you use, but I'd probably use a synthetic like Mobile1 or Royal Purple.
I used Mobile1 in my race car and never had any issues...but I changed it a lot.
As far as trusting people, I was right there watching as they changed the oil and rotated the tires.

Well I won't be going to this dealer again because I'm moving to Fort Carson on New Years. My 14 only had 4800 miles on it. Bought it from the dealer I'm going to in July.

It's another word for Wholesale Price, the term is as old as dirt and I've been using it all of my life because I'm almost as old as dirt.
A Ford Parts department would consider another retailer a Jobber and the discount is usually 10/20% below list price.
I just bought a 13/14 GT500 rear valance, Ford List is $253, with my Jobber discount I paid $202, it came into their stock and I didn't have to pay any freight. On the GT500 mufflers Ford list is $404 and Jobber net is $319......so for $822 I bought the same kit that other retailers sell for $842 and didn't save much money, but since I am a firm supporter of my local businesses, I won and so did they.

I agree with you plus it's really easy and roomy compared to older models

Luckily, I know a guy in town who changes oil for $10.....if you bring your own oil and filter. Yes, he doesn't mind if you stand there and talk to him while he does it either.
