The light won't turn on for oil change, ford is not that technologically advanced.

As for the rental, good luck with ford, while they have billed countless hours for storage (aka my truck was on the lot, but no one worked on it), they wouldn't lend me a car for free.

Never had such bad service in my life, then again, it's my first new ford.

I'm not 100% sure. Call and ask! Worst comes to worst they should have a shuttle for you.

I don't see anything stupid in there.

The dealership i deal with drops me at home and picks me up when the truck is ready.

My dealership I bought from had a loaner vehicle.

Now Volkswagen when my wife's car was making daily trips up there. You cant get a loaner unless your 25 years old. Then they gave us a Aveo when the transmission went out. It was the worst car and broke down on us.

Unlike my ford, i hardly ever went to Chevrolet. So when came time to leave my car at the shop and because they had no more loaners on the lot, they drove me to discount and leased me a malibu for the trouble.

It's weird that you got downgraded from a volks to an aveo (also that they got you a vehicle from another manufacturer!)

The aveo had to be a trade in and we were the ones to "try" it out.

It hard to determine if the aveo is a step up from the problematic beetle

If my truck goes in and they keep it for more than a day to repair it , they will give me a loaner car . I will go to their rental car dept and rent a car per se but they won't charge my credit card . Just to make sure I'm legal .....

Yup, it really all depends on your dealership/warranty. I bought an extended warranty for dirt cheap through a third party company since my truck was used. This warranty/insurance lets me rent a car from the dealer for 5 business days free of charge. After 5 straight days they charge me only $25 a day.

Just be sure to ask what is included in your warranty before you drop of your vehicle.

my extended warrenty (which is the exact same as a regular ford truck warrenty except that it costs $) gives me a free loaner if I get warrent work done at any for dealership and if they don't have a loaner I get a free rental car.

I would suspect your warrenty offers the same.

Always read the fine print on them extended warranties. We got one on our Beetle that was right after the 6th problem and the regualar warranty was gonna expire in a few miles.

It cost 50 bucks a month and really did not cover anything major. It covered small inexpensive stuff.
