I should go on record as agreeing with most of what is posted in the OP, it's just that it does not fit for squat in todays' world. Blather now with no meaning.

In our case Ford proper and its' dealers have some serious issues with each other and I personally see no end to it for the foreseeable future. Telling customers to dealer shop will be shortlived when they find out how bad so many of them truly are. A few are exceptional but the rest like with everything else will drag them down. Ford the Corp. brought much of this on themselves when they self-gutted the service depts. of their better help in the '90s by cutting their wages so radically.

^^^ Any details? Didn't have any contacts at the time to know anything of that.

Techs being Dealer employees, all I can assume is some directive/recommendation on staffing.
