Congrats on your new truck! Well since i have a 2000 i havent had any experience getting work done (knock on wood) that wasnt aftermarket mods. I do know that Pearson Ford is recognized as a four-star dealership for service center customer satisfaction. Actually, they ranked very high in all of CA too. I would start there. You might save some money taking it to a non-Ford service place..but i would personally think if they screwed something up,you'd have alot better chance of getting it rectified at a Dealership. I just looked up the 60,000 mile maintenance schedule for you. Here is the run down...
60,000 mile maintenance schedule~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Change engine oil and oil filter
Inspect brake pads/shoes/rotors/drums,brake
lines and hoses,and parking brake
Inspect cooling system and hoses
Inspect exhaust system and heatshields
Inspect steering linkage,suspension,and if equipped driveshafts and balljoints
Inspect tires for weak and rotate
Replace engine air filter
Replace fuel filter
Replace cabin air filter,if equipped
Changeautomatic transmission fluid on all vehicles with AX4S, AX4N, 4R70W, 4R100, 4F27E ..otherwise inspect fluid
(Additional needs for Light trucks at 60,000 below)
Inspect and lubricate 4x2 ball joints
Lubricate 4x2 wheel bearings,replace grease seals,and adjust bearings
Changfe manual tranny fluid
Inspect and lubricate steering linkage
Thats right from Fords "Scheduled Maintenance Guide". You could print that up and run the list by whoever you are interested in taking the truck too...then compare prices. Ive gotta run for now...Hope this helps!
