2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Last Oil Change
August 11, 2011
Our time with the Ford F-150 Raptor is nearing the end. Now that the truck is clean, the next order of business was an oil change. We always take care of any maintenance that is needed before we put our vehicles up for sale. The next scheduled maintenance was the 30K service, which in some vehicles, is considered a major service. We checked the manual and it turned out that the Raptor only needed an oil change and tire rotation. Its major service occurs at 60K, when the transmission fluid and filter need to be replaced.
The dealer experience was pretty straightforward. We weren't upsold any air or cabin filters and the truck was ready in a few hours. Although it had been freshly waxed, the dealer washed it anyway.
Next on our seller's checklist is a trip to Carmax for an appraisal. Feel free to make your wild guesses and predictions in the comments.
Total Cost: $87.22
