As usual, Stang came through again with excellent service and the safety of my son first and foremost. We took his '96 Ford Bronco in for an oil change and tire rotation and to have them look at the brakes as we knew they were getting worn and needed replaced. Once they had the vehicle apart for the brake inspection, they noticed that not only were the brakes worn, but they were actually installed incorrectly the last time they were installed and the rear drums basically fell apart when they went to check them. Once I okayed the brake fix, the also noticed that the front locking hubs for the four wheel drive were also worn to the point that they could fail at any given moment (the joys of a 20+ year old vehicle), so they called and gave me the update and I told them to fix those as well. They were trying to get the vehicle done before my son went back to college, but due to all of the work that had to be done, they couldn't quite get it completed as it was more than initially expected. I'm totally fine with that as long as the communication is handled as it was and there is sound reasoning behind the delay.
At the end of everything, I actually got a bill that was less than expected for the amount of work completed and the vehicle drives like a champ.
