Nothing, yet. I...

Nothing, yet. I am about to purchase a used 2014 Ford CMAX Energi and want to know what to expect.

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Ford. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Does this cost anything?

as well as any common or recurring defects or failures that might cost me a bunch of money in the 2-3 year time frame.
Customer reply replied 12 months ago
The local dealer here in Nashville looked up the VIN and told me that there were no outstanding recall items that had not been addressed. I'm not sure I trust him on that, but that's what he said. He wants to charge 1 hour of time at $100 to do a physical inspection.

I understand. Of course, the information will go together with you inspecting the condition of the fluids, the driveability(engine and transmission), etc. Just a moment, please.

Just one follow-up. Would it be reasonable to ask the Ford dealer to address each and every one of these items on the list for $100 and provide me with an estimate for those which s/he deems "required" for safe and long-term longevity of the car?
Customer reply replied 12 months ago
In other words, I presume each one of these repairs has a "book" value in their service computer that could be quoted to me rather quickly and easily, yes?

I think that the dealer would be happy to do a full check for that price. Also, yes, each of these will have a price that is set for labor and parts.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
