Where do I begin !! Drop off my f250 for repair. I'm told it's the ignition is bad needs replaced. First the next day they tell me the batteries needed replacing they wouldn't charge. After I told them no magically the next day they charged to 100%. So they diagnose the problem to be bad ignition . Ok I also had them fix the oil leak from oil cooler gaskets. 2121.07 was my total. I paid it and took my truck home. Within 24hrs the same exact thing happens again. I send the truck back to the shop when they call they tell me another 2k plus . One part they tell me is 800.00 when I hang up with them I immediately google the same oem part $145 all day. They are a complete rip off. Trust me there are better places with much more fair prices. I would not recommend this shop to anyone. Do yourself a favor and shop around . By the way I'm a 48 year old male who has been around and knows when your being hustled
Where do we begin... Vehicle comes in with a melted ignition switch and enough after market garbage wiring to make a 16 year old have a hard on in the Advanced Auto parking lot. You really bought the wrong vehicle if you are worried about price, but that's an entirely different story that I think another Ford diesel truck owner should elaborate with you on. There is not one single part on your estimate that is $800, not one, not a SINGLE part on this estimate is $800. You sir are a complete liar and you are completely embellishing the quote we gave you. I wish I could look you in the eyes and tell you this to you face. Love the story about how you got good deal on it in in Texas, such a good deal you had to add 1 gallon of oil every 200 miles just to limp it to North Carolina. Lets talk about your mis-matched batteries that DO NOT, even after charging for 24 hours, hold a charge. Any one with any common sense about diesels will tell you the battery is the life line of your Ford Diesel, but you know that, after all you are a 48 year old male, how could discharging 3+ year old batteries several times and recharging them, in 40F or less temperature NOT damage the battery. I would think after 48 years of your male-hood you would have picked that up. So lets talk about what this needs and what happened. When it arrived to us the first time around, dumping qts of oil on the ground and in the parking lot, the ignition switch was found melted it was replaced. You paid only $105 dollars to replace, the rest went to repairing the massive oil leaks. It returned for the same issue, surprise another melted ignition switch! By pass it and find that the starter relay is now bad as well, and whats this? It also melted the transmission range sensor as well. Also, while we are digging through the rat nest of garbage wiring in the vehicle that there is a water leak directly into the General Electric Module, water causing the relay to stick and melt the ignition switch, the relay, and likely helped the range sensor along as well. - nice corrosion all over it, because you know we did that when we were there, after we drove it 400,000 miles. Now we are baffled, how does the transmission range sensor go bad like this? Oh that's right the shift tube on the shifter/column is broken, has stretched the cable and caused damage to the range sensor as well, yeah we made all this up because we love trying to source 19 year old used and discontinued parts for hours. Did you even take 5 minutes to think about this truck before you bought it? Honestly, what can we help you with? You bought a vehicle you obviously have no idea what it cost to maintain, not sure why you felt inclined to leave such a bad review over this heap. You good deal, turns into our bad deal. Famous last words of anyone buying a car "I got a good deal on it". You sure did. I guess you expect us to swap another switch in, so it too can melt right? You do understand we spend one or two days with your vehicle. but you, you spend weeks with it. With more problems then I could list, how can you expect to toss $105 at it and it all goes away? I have pictures of this thing, 1FTNX20F6XEB89476 <- thats the VIN CarFax it yourself. What a heap, hope this review and my reply steer anyone else who's expectation cant align with reality, because this is a BS review through and through. You are a part of a small handful of people who really get under my skin. Hope you cheap out on everyone of these repairs and you sit on the side of the road from your own bad decisions.
