2008 Ford Focus SES Coupe: 25,000 Mile Service Conclusion

July 31, 2009

So this morning we dropped our 2008 Ford Focus SES Coupe off at Santa Monica Ford for an oil change and a tire rotation. They quoted us, after some debate, a price of $55.99 before tax. Too late, you alerted us to a printable coupon that could've gotten us this service for $39.95. Being Santa Monica, they certainly offered us no such deal without our prior knowledge. Welcome to the West Side.

At the end of the day we walked out with fresh oil and rotated tires (I secretly and permanently marked the wheels, they were rotated front-to-back) and were charged $59.85. The cashier was on the slow and careless side and the valet took forever: Ford of Santa Monica gets a C for this effort.
