Call your local Ford dealer service department tell them your checking for recall status give them the vin#. Ask while they are in there about service history.Looking at a 2019 Expedition Limited with 50k miles. CarFax is showing regular oil changes and services but also some weird stuff with the transmission (replaced/serviced/removed & reinstalled/fluid flush) at 47k. Not sure if that would be a good thing or red flag or just someone entered the service info in wrong so it reflecting weird on CarFax. Was supposed to go look at it on Sat but they notified me on Friday that it had to "be taken to the Ford dealer for a software update and that it would take ~2 weeks" (vehicle is at an Acura dealership). Are dealers that backed up currently that a software update would take 2 weeks or should I be concerned about them taking to the dealer for something bigger? The car fax shows the notification about the cam phaser program but do not see that it had been performed already so it could possibly be for that but not sure how long that job usually takes.
Just asking for opinions on whether I am over thinking it or if I should probably pass on this one and continue waiting for something else? (I'm very over car shopping at this point....) Dealership is a decent drive away so I don't want to drag the wife all the way up there for nothing.
CarFax data is absolute trash!!!
