    15 F150 Long Term Decision

    It's easier to just trade and get the new one but realistically you might be surprised how big of a difference some upgrades and a professional detail will bring back the truck to what you want.

    Pet Peeves

    I've passed 2 people last week who hit all of my driving pet peeves at the same time. Driving in the fast lane under the speed limit with no cars in front of you but holding up traffic a mile behind you, while a phone glued to your face in a car that I know has bluetooth to talk on and then when...

    Another high school shooting. Three dead so far...

    On a semi related note my wife is a teacher and forgot something she needed for class today. She asked that I bring it by her school and drop it off at the main office on my way to work. I wondered if I was going to walk through the door into the school or what. They only have 1 entrance open...

    Anyone else noticing a motor oil shortage?

    We’ve still been getting our bulk oil as scheduled here at my dealership but our prices did increase the other day. Up to $100 for oil/rotate. We were running about $75 for 0/20 syn with rotate.

    O'Reilly's lost me forever as a costumer

    100%. Answer the phone whenever there isn’t a client in front of you and set appts. Sure a lot of those calls are people wanting advice how to fix their shit or asking 100 stupid questions but can’t get any if you don’t try. I was walking out the door (late) the other day and call center rep...

    Car Buying in 2022

    One of my clients in service just traded his CRV that he bought from us in march of 2019 for 500 bucks less than he paid for it. He essentially rented a car for 2 and 1/2 years and 30,000 miles for $500. He bought a new one at MSRP.

    Car Buying in 2022

    There’s a local dealer to me trying to get 50 grand for a used maverick. I guess I can see someone paying a lot to have one of the first broncos or c8 corvettes but the whole point of the maverick is a cheap truck. Anyone willing to spend 50k on one is a fool.

    Places to buy used cars and/or aftermarket warranty for used car

    I worked for ford a couple years ago and realized quickly that diesel work is where all the money is at in the shop. Especially fleet vehicle accounts.

    FedEx Hell!

    I feel your pain. My dad always told me the distribution center his packages go through lost packages constantly, I didn’t realize how bad it was until I moved close to him now my packages go through the same center and have had nothing but issues. Last time I had ordered a gun and it’s showing...

    You got me beat lol. We don’t typically have repair bills that large, that sounds like a diesel repair.
