Re: Seattle people: Where do you get your van serviced?
Geoff, I have a 2005 4X4 SMB diesel. All the scheduled service has been done at Bill Pierre Ford in Lake City. Of course it's only been scheduled maintenance, and they just treat it like a regular diesel van. When I first bought The Van and drove it up from Fresno, I had a little problem with the front axle and tie rod assembly, and I took it to Ballard Frame and Axle (Google for the address) and they did a great job, and SMB picked up the bill. This place in Ballard is a funky old place that's been there since the first Norwegians invaded Ballard, and the owner could probably fix anything.
