2011 Ford Mustang GT: First Service

As you'll remember, on my way back from my trip to Monterey our 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 flashed that it needed an oil change, and now.

Well, that change came as soon as I was back in LA. I dropped the 'Stang off at Santa Monica Ford (without an appointment) and two hours later I got a call saying the car was full of all vital and non-vital fluids -- and washed.

$29.31 in labor, $4.39 in parts, $15.40 worth of oil and 0.45 to the tax man and we were out $49.95. Not cheap, but not outrageous. Plus, they don't try to up sell or otherwise con you into crazy services. I like this place.

Also, while I was there, I found something I want...we totally should've bought that color.
