Hi all

My 2009 Ford Focus is due a major service as it is 3 years old, although it has only done 16,000 miles.

Looking at the paperwork an annual service was done at 7,000 miles on it's 1st birthday and then a subsequent service done at 13,000 miles after two years.

Is there anything I need to specifically have done at this interval?

I am looking at the following:

- new air filter
- new spark plugs
- new pollen filter
- new oil filter & oil change
- fluid check and change if necessary
- brake pad/disc check

The steering feels slightly out (i.e. I need to hold the wheel slightly left of centre to remain straight) therefore I also want the tracking/wheel balancing looking into.

Is there anything else I should be aware of?

Many thanks!

Have something to contribute?

My advice would be to check the vehicle after the service to make sure everything is correct before you drive off, as when I had my focus serviced last month they forgot to replace the oil filler cap :angry: and caused oil to leak when driving for just under a week before I noticed.
