Just ran an Oasis report on my 97 Cougar and Ack! it's got a FWD AX4S 4 SPD TRANSAXLE in it too! :tongue: :rolleyes:

I had to come here and do a search to find out what the hell it was... :D

The Ford dealer here in Florida was very anal about not giving me the report citing privacy laws preventing disclosure of previous owner information and the fact that they had had problems with new owners contacting previous owners.

Not sure if it was florida law, national, he was full of it, or if its just ford policy to not disclose the reports anymore.

He did give me the first page with some basic info on it and I was able to quiz him 20 questions style about the service history as he held the rest of the report printout in his hand!... :mad:

I did at least find out that the intake was replaced at a Ford dealership under the AWA "after warranty adjustment" campaign which gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. I already knew it had the aluminum crossover intake installed at some point but had no idea who had done the work...

Just don't let the DMV put it on their road test dyno or at least stay there to stop them from doing something very stupid.

i remember when you used to be able to run oasis reports over the internet. One of the sites connected to blue oval news let you get right into it. Ford plugged that hole in a matter of days.

Most consumers don't know about this, and the dealer won't tell you either, its for internal dealer use usually.

If someone could run a full report on my two cars and send the printouts to me, i'd gladly pay them some cash.

Yeah, if I still worked at Ford I could run reports for you guys. Thinkin' about working at a different dealer now- still a Ford dealer just not the one I came from...
