It's great that they fixed it up for you - I once complained about the alignment in my '96 t-bird after only a few hundred miles, and got the old "It's perfect from the factory" line. Well, at 1000 miles, I found the right front wheel bearing to be loose. Then, they tell me they "tightened" it - it's a unitized non-serviceable bearing. I laughed and said "You can't tighten it" and walked out - a week later, they changed it.

I complained loudly about the entire experience. Month or two later, the service manager was gone, and the new one replaced almost all the service writers. Nepotism at it's best, apparently.

I picked the truck up all nice and cleaned up took it down the highway everything went straight at 80MPH
When I purchaced the truck they had what they call a gas and go promotion for $2200 they servce all my oil changes belts shocks brakes and fluids even wipers For 6 years or 160,000 km That includes trani and transfer case rear end servce at 100,000 km I think i made a good choice all I have to do is put gas in it
Although the price here for gas is $1.40 per liter ouch.
Well so far I am very satisfied with the F-250

Glad the dealer took care of you. Mine wanted nothing to do with the video I had and took it on a 1 mile test drive and said it was fine. The stock steering stabilizer is pretty much garbage. A nice aftermarket one will get rid of alot of the loosey goosey feeling...

This video was taken early on in my trucks life with the stock stabilizer. I never did take a video after I installed the 7100 stabilizer, but it was a huge improvement.
