Looking for North Coast/Portland Diesel Ford Mechanic Recommendation
As per the title, can anyone provide a recommended Ford 6.7L certified diesel mechanic that they trust within reach of the north coast of Oregon?
My truck is still under warranty, '11 F350 w/ 6.7L, and no real problems with it (some updates required and some hard shifting) but if I am driving in from the coast to Portland, I would rather go a bit further based on a recommendation than to just settle for the closest shop near me. I was not thrilled with the treatment I received from the place I purchased my F350 from (I did not purchase from Astoria Ford).
Yes, there is Astoria Ford here but I have no clue about the abilities of their diesel mechanics and since it is a smaller shop, I am uncertain of their experience dealing with this newer 6.7L (unfortunately I have read of horror stories with inexperience on the 6.7L in areas with little 6.7L traffic). Besides, I'm a big believer in terms of referrals. Do a good job, you get rewarded.
Thanks for any replies.

I would recommend Tillamook Motors, they have treated me well in the past.

Sorry, can't help you with anything up there... Plus I dont know much about the 6.7's, lots about the 7.3 though!
