    Re: Ford recall on brake lines

    Did you just drop in? Or book beforehand? I have a booking but only for July, wouldn't mind popping in earlier to get it done.

    Re: Jeep Centurion dealership closed as from 1 July

    So what happens in a case of still having a maintenance plan on a vehicle? Where to go for services then?

    How do you guys receive this letter, by email?

    And, if I have not received such, can I phone Ford to enquire about eligibility of my Ranger? Or do I need to wait fror the letter?
