    Default Oil change = New Eco boost truck

    Went to the dealership to get an oilchange and tire rotation on my 2010 F150 16 month old 5.4 truck. Had a little time to kill and i always was VERY interested to see what the ECOBOOST was really all about.
    I ran into my old salesman and asked if it would be possible to take one out for a test spin?Well of course the answer was YES.
    Low and behold before we even hopped into a Similar but newer truck ,with said motor,he mentioned FORD was having a 4 day 0% financing sale...

    Of course i was like ,NO I CANNOT BUY another truck,BUT then he went on to tell me IF..... we could basically trade keys and no more money would you be interested?

    Guess what??? We now have a 2012 ECOBOOST F150 with sweet 20'" rims, remote start and then identical match truck.. Redo financing and 28.00 a month more payments (due to slight upgrades),start financing over. ALL paper,transfers ,payouts etc included... Now i have the truck i really wanted!!!!!!

    More power ,5mpg better and more features... I love it. I really don't think i will ever be able to take the truck back for service EVER,but oh well...

    I have to admit that my wife was MORE than understanding,and willing to commit to this after explaining just the fuel savings and SHE gets a remote starter. Now just gotta figure how to get Cold air kit and reprogrammer???

    Now just gotta break her in and hook up the boat and see how she really performs..

    Nice man nice. I havnt herd to much about the CAI and Reprogrammers on those modles yet. Im sure there out there but do some research on it first.

    I also would go talk to the service department directly about additions on the truck, the last few years the dealers are really cracking down on any changes. Its to the point now if you even change tire sizes and have any issues with the truck from brakes to steering they will void your warrenty because you changed it from factory.

    Nice! That is the exact same thing that happened to me in October. Went in
    to get an oil change with my 2010 4.6L Tundra...left with a 2011 5.7L. Basically swapped keys. Now everytime I go to the dealer my wife wonders if I'll come back with something new...

    XTR is a trim pakage. It might even be one created just for our local market... I'm not 100% on that. Its a Chrome trim pack,includes Bumper,front grill, tow hooks ,exhuast tipcover chhome rim covers and running boards i believe. Makes a plain XLT which it is just stand out a little.Its just a convieneince pakage of sorts.

    Mike as for upgrades ie cold air and programmer, They are available for sure. At the dealership i could get a Rousch cold air kit from them which is approved althought the programmers are available but i'm not too sure if they are approved ,likely Not.

    BTW,my wife says i am 100% banned from going to the dealership again for oil changes, HaHa.
    She does like the truck though,she got to choose the colour. We had the same colour 2 trucks ago.
