Local NB Dealer Experiences?

Hey, I've got an '08 Ranger with 17K on it - that's seems like its missing bad between 2000-3000rpm. Does it idling or when driving at any speed... really evident once the truck warms up.

I've taken it to the local deal twice so far, the only result is that my engine light doesn't come on when it starts missing it now (light still comes on when I first start it - so bulb is good).

Its starting to get worse & now shakes the gear shift & I can feel the vibration though the gas pedal... & hear what sounds like spark-knock tick on RH side of engine.

Local dealer is trying to tell me I got bad gas... had sample taken & tested ok.

I'd like to try another dealer... anybody had any "good" luck with dealers in Fredericton or Moncton NB? I really don't want to travel more than a few hours & the local dealer owns all the Ford shops in my area.

Thanks.

I deal with Taylor Ford and have had minimal complaints. Ask for Steve when you get to the service counter, he better to deal with than Roger.

Downeys in Saint John is not too bad. I guess it depends on the issue. I've mostly had good results, with only a few negatives over the years.
