......RECOMMENDED!!...... When I dropped my car off for the 45k maintenance, it never occurred to me that it'd be more than the normal lube and filter. As I was leaving to go take a walk and kill time, the service representative ran outside to let me know if I was aware of how long it'd take and the price. I'm glad he warned me, it was about 3x more than I was expecting. When I got back an hour and a half later to pick it up, Vancouver Ford in Vancouver WA mentioned all the recommended stuff I should get done (like new front brakes, air/fuel filter), but did so in a low pressure fashion, which I was utterly thankful for.
......FAST!!! BEST EXPERIENCE I HAVE HAD AT A CAR DEALERSHIP! I have serviced my Explorer at Vancouver Ford for years and they always treat me with respect and are fast and friendly.
