    My Maverick had its first oil change and tire rotation today at Ballentine Ford, Greenwood SC. Cost was 67.56, but I used 13,523 Ford Pass Points, leaving me a balance of 28,488 points. In other words, I will get three oil changes and tire rotations for the points. Most Toyota models come...

  5. Are there any cancelled VINs for Eco Boost????

    I am seeing a lot of VIN cancellations for hybrids. Any for EB's? Especially wondering about all those EB's that got ordered the last part of January, 2022. My condolences to anybody that got cancelled. I hope Ford gives compensation, so you are not hurt too bad. Losing the interest rate is...
  6. Why the Ford Maverick is so Popular

    Below article shows the Maverick has outsold the Santa Cruz 68 percent to 32 percent. Cost, ride, and appearance seem to lead the reasons. Practical also comes to mind for me. Love mine and, of course, I am partial to Cactus Gray!! (y) Just turned 1K on miles; 30.6 mpg, mostly eco mode...

  12. A Small Bright Spot????

    Up to now, if you did not take a vehicle or cancelled your order, the dealership received the vehicle and sold it with a large ADM, ranging from about 3k to 10k. Now, it appears that if you decide to not reorder as a MY23, the order is gone and so is the dealership getting that vehicle. Of...
