Last Tuesday I stopped to get gas. After I filled up I went to crank the truck and a load boom accompanied by a fireball came from under the hood. I popped the hood to find a spark plug had blown completely out taking the threads in the aluminum head with it. It's an 06 F-150 V8 with 69,000 miles. Well I had it towed to the closest mechanic just to get it out of the gas station parking lot. The mechanic there said they could try and install a heli-coil but having used them in the past I wasn't too keen on the idea. The other option was a new head. Cost, about $1500 parts and labor. I figured what the heck I'll e-mail the dealer I bought it from and see what they say. I sent the e-mail that night, the next morning I got a call from the owner of the dealership asking where the truck was so they could pick it up. I told him I really didn't have a lot of cash to drop on repairs. He told me don't worry about the cost just let us take a look at it. Well I got a call about 6pm wednesday to come pick my truck up. On the way there I was sweatin bullets cause the lady who called never mentioned how much I owed. When i picked it up the bill was $100. Not bad for a tow and repair. The owner said even though it was out of warranty he would rather make more money in the long run off of repeat buisiness than a quick buck off a repair. In the future he will be getting all my buisiness. The dealer is Allan Vigil if anyone cares. I've never really had a good experience at a dealer repair shop till now. Just thought I'd share that there are some who still go the extra mile to help a customer.
