Also-Hitching Post in Hopkins has good mechanics. I've never had a problem with their work either.
Thanks for the Hitching Post comment. I called the Fridley shop Saturday afternoon. The fellow in the service dept that answered the phone was actually the store general manager. I asked about the training of the mechanics, he said his shop has all kinds of paper hanging on the wall for all his techs for factory training on all the brands they sell. Naturally he is very confident in the abilities of his mechanics. I gotta take that at face value, because no matter what they know, it's more than what I know. So I booked an appointment for this upcoming week to do the 7500 mile check early at 6500. I can't recall all what will be done per the owner's manual, but if it's not otherwise included, I'm going to have them check/adjust the throttle position sensor and the throttle bodies, and whatever else the engine will want so it is able to sing it's pretty song in perfect tune.
