Good SoCal Dealership for Maintenance

Has anyone had any good experience with Ford dealerships in the greater Los Angeles Area for maintenance work (i.e. oil changes, scheduled maintenance, Recall part swaps, etc.)?

How are these Ford dealerships services?
- Galpin Ford
- Ford of Montebello
- Bob Wonderies Ford
- Cerritos Ford Lincoln
- South Bay Ford Lincoln

Galpin Ford is awesome they take care of you really well my family has been buying our cars there for about 15 years... I just scooped up a 13 mk3 a month ago and they take care of any issues you have plus if you wanna do any upgrades Galpin Auto Sport hooks you up in price.

x2 for Galpin. It's where I got my FoFo and had it serviced when I was in the Valley. But I don't live there anymore, so I go to a smaller one local to me. They're cool though.

Even though I'm probably closer to Galpin, I take all my Fords to Advantage in Duarte. Been going there for about 15 years. Always pleased with there work. I know my service advisor almost on a personal level, and he always takes care of me.

You couldn't pay me to go to wonderies...really bad experience years ago!!!

Don't think south bay is much better.

Galpin has been good, but they can get backed up because of how busy they get, I seen cars fall off the lift there, and my father-in-law had them total a rear lift gate on a explorer. Ran it into another car or something. They did take care of it though.

I'm bumping this thread to get anyone else's recommendation. I'm closest to Advantage, but if Galpin is worth it. I'm only at 1000 miles, but am concerned about transmission issues. Anyone deal with Galpin and transmission issues?

I'd say Galpin. I've never been there but they had a sick custom Ford GT at Pebble Beach. That's doing car-guy advertising right.

Go to Advantage and ask for Mike Santana. Tell him the guy with the Jurassic Park truck sent you. He'll take care of you.

I actually had a trans go out in another car years ago and took it there. They advised me to buy a new one because they said I would be back in a year with a rebuild. They then gave me a great deal on the new one, for not much more then the a rebuilt one. Still running strong too.
