Re: Getting TSB work done at a non-Ford shop?
It has been the level of service and the feeling of being lied to at every turn that has really put me off the dealership.
Yesterday, long after posting this, I did a VIN search on my car. It turns out that my "new" 2007 Mustang GT/CS that had 3500KM on it apparently put on by someone that works at the dealership, shows as having a previous lein on it 3 months before I bought it - what looks to be a 1 year lease. It's looking like it in fact was a lease repo or a lease return, rather than new. That unfortunately answers a lot of questions I've had in my mind about things that never really added up about the car. The salesmen didn't even know it was on the lot, didn't have a window sticker, had after market rims, the next day when I went to have the stock rims put back on they put on 18" premiums which you can't even get a GT/CS with as opposed to the 18" Bullits.
All this has made me want to get to the bottom of what's going on here. Was I sold a used car as new? If I take action against the dealer then I'm in the same boat - taking the car to a non-Ford shop as I really don't want to be on the receiving end of vindictive behaviour from an angry Ford employee. For example I'd rather not be driving down the highway and have a wheel come flying off because someone "forgot" to tighten the lugs after the last tire rotation.
