  • Ford Model: 2009 Focus Zetec S 1.8 Petrol

Posted 23 January 2011 - 04:31 PM

Hi all,

I am thinking of buying a 2009 Ford Focus Zetec S with 11,200 miles. The car was first registered during 06/2009, it's first service was during 11/2009. It hasn't been serviced since. The Ford dealership that is selling the car say they will service it before anyone buys it meaning that it's 2nd service will be this month, 01/2011.

Now my question is what is the service schedule on these cars? I heard services should be every 12,500 miles or 12 months.
If this is true, does it mean the car I am looking at would not be covered by the Ford 3 year warranty because it's 1st and 2nd services were more than 12 months apart?

Any help much appreciated.

It is 12500 miles or 12 months, which ever comes first. You would only have a problem with thw warrenty if something went wrong after it was due a service that had not been done. Mine is going to be on 13 months since it was last serviced, but I have only done 11000 since the last one. They dont mind a month or so being out of kilter.

If you are buying the car from a Main Dealer, you would automatically be covered by warranty even if the car had not been serviced (although they always do it).
