    Default Ford service in Pretoria

    Hi all

    We had my wife's Ikon serviced yesterday. Although it looks as though they did everything they claimed to have done, they also installed a nasty drive belt squeak (I hope it has gone now after some tender ministrations on my part). I was also a bit surprised that a major service on an Ikon costs twice what I pay on my Disco.

    The previous time we took the car to this agent, our experience was also less than perfect. (http://www.hellopeter.com/the_comment.asp?recid=56046).

    Can anyone recommend a Ford agent/specialist (Does anyone "specialise" in Ikons ) who we could try. Alternatively, is there a workshop manual for the Ikon, although I am wary of electronics?

    Thanks

    I bought my Ford Ranger at Hatfield PTA, so I took it for its first A service (oil change) to them. After getting a bill for just under R1200.00 I complained as my buddy had the same service done for R600.00 at a small town. For the B service I took the bakkie to Centurion Ford. What a pleasure!! It went for a B service and it cost less than the A service at Hatfield. They fixed stuff I forgot to mention. So ja take your Ford to them. I will recommend them for Ford but not for a Land Rover.

    Thanks

    It seems that during the service they missed the shot water pump bearing. This is now being replaced and after that we will see if Centurion Ford are any better. I'd still feel more comfortable if I could find an independent Ikon expert.

    I wouldn't dream of letting a stealer anywhere near my Land Rover .
