Just take it to the dealership and have them run the VIN against any recalls or bulletins that Ford has posted...

You'd figure that in the age of information technology, I could just go to a website and key in my VIN and get the information. lol

Damn.. Last thing I need is to burn time dealing with dealerships who can't do work unless you drop off your vehicle and leave it all day. Urgh.. lol
