Unhappy My dealership is leaving me, Now what?

I just found out my dealership is moving four towns away at the end of the month They have a great diesel mech. I am wondering if any of you have had this happen. Will another dealership service my rig even though I didn't purchase it form them. I guess this means the end of the free loaner car I hope the new dealership will be friendly to the mild mods I have done. Do you think its worth talking to the mangerment of the new dealership. The new dealership is new to town, they were not in business when I purchased my rig. I am going to lose sleep over this tonight. Any great dealership's in Northern New Jersey. Hopeing for some advise, Thanks Guys.

To keep the relationship, I would easily drive a hour.

And yes, the Ford warranty stands at any dealership.

The only mechanic who will touch my rig is 200 miles away, but it will be taken to him if needed.

yes they will service your car. I tend to be very loyal if i am treated to good service and if i was you i would likely just travel to the new location. Were i am all the dealerships are permantly closeing their doors. No one is buying cars. The oldest ford dealership in the USA, Harold Ford, is still up and running here.
Good luck

All dealers will give you a free loaner if you have the Ford Extended Warranty.
