2011 Ford Mustang GT: Oil Change and Tire Rotation

October 11, 2011


I had our Mustang serviced yesterday at Lithia Ford in Fresno, Calif. (where I live). Since the Mustang's service intervals are primarily based on the car's oil life monitor, the owner's manual lists maintenance items by the number of times you've had the car in for service. This was our Mustang's third oil change, and for this interval it was still just an oil change and tire rotation.

I debated a little on the tire rotation since we just recently put the new Michelin Pilot PS2s on. But in the end I figured it'd be best just to get the rotation matched to the normal schedule. The experience was generally pleasant, and the final cost was $55.53.

Also, as a public service announcement, remember that Edmunds still has Dealer Rating and Reviews. This is where you can write or read reviews about your sales and repair experiences at the dealerships in your area.
