A story of the crooked mechanic, my mom, and me
Posted October 02, 2001 - 10:11 AM
Years ago I took my XL600 to the honda dealer and in my youth & inexperience said to them 'prepare it for the "expertise"' which is a mechanical road worthiness test all vehicles must go through periodically. BIG DUMB ASS MOVE. They did the mechanicals OK but they charged me approx. 2 hours work + parts to change the FORK BOOTS which were slightly split in a couple of places. Total about 300$. Needless to say I went ballistic. They refused to even discuss. Being English mother tongue and not speaking MAD French (try speaking a foreign language when you are pissed!) it regressed into a lot of F&&&ing this & that and referring to *A*S*S*H*O*L*E* etc. I never went to them again during the 14 years I owned the bike. They lost a long term client and soured me towards Honda.
You live and learn.

Since you sound like your the man when it comes to Fords could you email me a quick note so I can email you back or post your email address. I've got a '92 Ford Exploder that I actually love but have some questions and want to know your opinions on the auto AL4D that came in them. I'm looking to do what I can to extend the life of a tranny that seems to have a Rep of going south pretty early in it's life compared to others.

You should post which location tried to screw you so the rest of us can avoid them.
