The dealership charges $89.00/ hour. Insane. Most other places around here charge $65.00/ hour and up.

The truck has never been abused, far as I know. I bought it for my mother in the fall of 1998. She took a couple of long trips in it. She died in March of 2000. I think it had about 35K on it then. It sat for nearly a year, because I could not bring myself to drive it. Maybe that wasn't good for it? I have had to use it as a commute vehicle the past couple of years, though. I get the oil changed every 3,500 - 5,000 miles, just got it's 50K service. I don't drive it hard. I just got new tires for it a few months ago.
