Jim from Baltimore here. Just wondering - don't need it now, hopefully I won't - but if I've got to take the truck in for warranty work at some point, who do you suggest?
I bought the truck (06 250 CC) at Al Packer, but I can have warranty work done at any area dealer, right?
Anybody have experience on which dealers are easier to deal with and which ones are pr***s?
I'm not doing any crazy mods to the truck, just bolt-on stuff, but if I have problems down the road, I'd like to find a dealer who won't give me a hard time and who has good diesel techs.
Right now I've just got an Airaid intake, but I'll probably do the exhaust next. Looking at the MBRP 4" single. From what I understand they come with a cat delete pipe, so I can swap it in and out if I want. I'm also running an SCT X3, mainly for the economy, but I have tried out the performance setting (SWEET!), so I can always set it back to stock b4 taking it in for service.
Shaun, you say you're running a performance tune and they don't bother you about it? Have you had anything done under warranty yet?
I havent had anything done under warranty yet with the tune installed. But I have gone there and seen other vehicles that have been modded and havent heard anything negative about them. In fact just had rear pads and routine maintenence done about three weeks ago and they did not question anything about the truck.
Shaun, HOPEFULLY, you will NOT have a warranty claim. It IS possible that if you do, and they now KNOW you have a tuner, they will be able to deny any claim that has anything to do with engine work! I sure HOPE it will never happen, but some have discoved after Ford knows there is a tuner on there, they flag your records for it!
