Ford recommends that its late model vehicles be serviced every 5,000-miles. Scheduled services are essentially grouped into three categories: Maintenance Service #1, #2 #3 and #4, with the most comprehensive services coming in at 50,000 and 100,000 miles.

Maintenance Service #2: In addition to everything covered above, our technicians will rotate the tires as well as inspect components like the power steering system, rear axel and transmission, control arms, clutch and exhaust.

Maintenance Service #3: In addition to the first two services, our technicians replace cabin air filter, as well as lubricate hinges, latches, clocks and weather stripping, clean battery terminals, and then check and lube steering, suspension, ball joints, drive shaft U-joints and slip yoke.
