2011 Ford Mustang GT: Timely Transfusion

July 04, 2011

When the Mustang GT let us know to that its oil should be changed soon, we didn't make it wait. Ford of Santa Monica had a special that included an oil change, tire rotation and brake inspection for $48. As we are replacing the tires very soon -- we have them and just have to get them installed -- we told them to skip the tire rotation. As S.M. Ford is down the street from the office, we dropped off the car at 2:00 and picked it up at 5:00 (though it was ready before that).

The brakes checked out fine and, big surprise, they recommended that we get new tires. Overall, we were happy with the service as they were courteous and didn't try to sell us some kind of "dealer recommended service" rip when we dropped the car off. And am sure the 'stang is happy too with fresh oil coursing through its mighty, thundering 412-horsepower V8.
