dealership ripping me off?
so i recently got this 6.0 with 35,000 miles on it. when i first had it inspected by future ford in sacramento, ca, they came back with a relatively clean bill of health, with a bill of $300. all they said was that it had a couple leaks in the axles, but other than that it was good.
I just took the truck into crown motors ford in redding, ca for an alignment and to have them look at why my backup sensors and heated seats were not working. they said they would do a vehicle inspection for FREE. After going back in, they found a bunch of stuff "wrong" with the truck.
Front axle seal and rear pinion seal leaking, and stuff dealing with front suspension=$1500
Turbo veins sticking, egr leaking, and oil cooler leaking (says egr and oil cooler are supposed to be within 12* of each other, mine was 46*)=$4500
Seat hearer unit drawing to much power=$795
A grand total for all that was wrong=$8000
Those were the big ones. My question is am i being had for? the sacramento dealership did not find any of these. Were they just not doing their job? or is the redding dealership taking advantage of a young kid with a diesel?
Any help would be greatly appreciative guys and gals!!
