    Having the car is not the issue for me. The issue with the dealer was the "mate don't ask for it because it is booked out for weeks" attitude. On top of this I drop my car off at 7:30am so that I expect it back at 4pm. Last 2 times I have had to wait half an hour and not everything has been done because the mechanics were flat out. WTF! So the dealer got the big FU on their last feedback call.

    New Gatton dealer is great. Yep I have to drive 30 minutes to get there. However, took the Ranger in for 3k check up. Dropped in at 7:30. Promised it shouldn't take any more than an hour. 45 minutes later got a call to come and pick it up. Service manager good bloke. Informed me that they will let me know how long each service will take and if I book a 7:30 spot first for the day then they will do my car first. Might have to wait a week to book it in but I am happy to work with this. Admitted that hire car is rarely available because they are a small country dealer. So happy with that. Good coffee shop down the road so I will wait. That is what I want from a dealer. Honesty. Pretty simple really.

    Had my 12 month done. Didn’t exactly go to plan but ok.

    Didn’t get the satnav update so has to go back when I have time.

    Saw a nice black sprint 8 at a local car show tonight. Black is a great colour for the fgx.

    Why is that service? If they say they can have it done then get it done. If there is a genuine reason then fair enough. However, most cases with Ford this is not. Too many times my old dealer couldn't get this or that done because they were "rushed". I fixed that. Went somewhere else so they wouldn't be so busy.

    I very much agree with with you Perko.
    I sure am not the way by the sound of my post.
    I was being gentle for I don't know the facts/or reasons why the service was not complete on the day therefore I was hoping Ian would comply if he feels to.

    Interestingly Both hose's from the coolant header tank had minor leaking.
    Both changed under WTY.
    Was looked after well, Sprint is ready for some K's during the break.
    Following on from the above.
    Been fortunate the Sprint has performed without a issue mechanically and overall.
    Yes I have added some k's during the break but not the way I'm hanging out to do - that is get out of town and really tackle some nice regional flowing roads and twisties.
    All I've been able to do is use it for small runs instead of the daily mixed with a blurt in back streets I know - then I have the bad timing of public holidays double demerits so its cruise cruise cruising.
    It fecking great being in it but I need a long haul !

    Not really fussed about it to be honest. The dealership is not more than 20 minutes walk from where I am. I can drop the car in anytime, they will stop what they are doing and put the update in.

    The car was returned without damage. That’s the only thing I care about. Don’t wash it, don’t touch it unless you have to.

    Which reminds me. Check the oil level tomorrow. Lol
