SIDNEY, Ohio - On March 2, my extended family left Mt. Clemens, Mich., home for a one week vacation to Orlando, Florida. There were eight of us in three vehicles.
I had done all the pre-trip maintenance things to my Ford E-150 van to insure a safe, uneventful trip. At 100 miles I noticed a small chirp coming from the engine compartment.
At 150 miles it was a scream. I pulled off the highway in a small Ohio town called Sidney hoping to find an open garage at 1 o’ clock in the afternoon on a Saturday. It was 29 degrees outside.
I saw a Ford Oval way off in the distance. I drove to it and parked. I rushed to the door to find it locked and the lobby dark. It was 1:15 p.m. and they closed at 1 p.m.
I saw a mechanic working in the garage so I went into the dealership and thru the dark service department to ask for help.
The mechanic called in the service manager from home who found the part and he installed it. This could have ruined our vacation but instead I was on my way in 45 minutes.
I think BUCKEYE FORD LINCOLN went a lot further for their customer.
