    I am a recent Cobra purchaser. There is no authorized Cobra dealer here in the Lansing area. I have three options for a dealer, which do you suggest?

    Krug Hilltop in Howell,

    Brighton Ford in Brighton,

    Keller Ford in Grand Rapids.

    Thanks for your input.

    What kind of work does the car need? Warranty items? :shrug:

    I think there's a Ford dealership in Okemos, and I know there's one in Stockbridge. Fowlerville also comes to mind off the top of my head...

    Man... I grew up in Lansing... Went to Waverly HS. Lived just off St. Joe Hwy and Waverly road.

    Sorry I can't help with a dealer. I left Lansing over 24 years ago...

    It would be warranty work. But irregardless, work on a Cobra engine, transmission, etc (specific to a Cobra) must be done by a SVT (and not just SVT Focus) authorized dealer. Those dealers that I listed above are the closest authorized dealers.

    I was looking for people with SVT's that have had work done there and what their experiences were.

    Keller is a big dealer. I've never had any work over their done, but I stoped by quite a few times to check out some Cobras. BTW, I don't think the name is Keller anymore. I believe they are Fox now. :shrug:

    Know the area well. Have lived near Lansing for 30 years.

    We hope to retire to Vermont. The weather here is ok, but the riding is much better in Vermont. :)

    Thank you.

    Did the name change just happen, because I got the name from calling the SVT phone line. LOL if Ford doesn't even keep updated on the names of their dealers.

    It just happened. I'm guessing it's a buy out or something, since there is a Fox Hyundai and Fox Saab dealer accros from them. :shrug:
