The official service interval is 20,000km or 1 year. It wouldn't hurt to do it now if you can afford it though.

If it has been a year, then you should have it serviced. As you have only done 12,000km in one year suggests a lot of town driving and that is why they stipulate "or 1 year".

 

If you did mainly/more motorway/highway driving, 20,000km wouldn't be a problem between services.

If the car was bought new 2 years ago and never had a service or oil change.....Bottom line: If your yearly mileage is below 20,000km, get it serviced each year.

Small service for first year oil an filter an recommend pollen filter every year special if asthmatic usually full every 3 years but some do it every second year all boils down cost but u should change oil every year regardless of mileage oil looses it viscosity (ability to lubricate engine)an plus warranty won't cover u if service not done at right time

visit www.etis.ford.com, put your number plate into the vehicle lookup and you can generate a service schedule. The general rule AFAIK is every 12 months, or 20,000 KM on the birthday of the car.

If you do MORE than 20,000km per year oil and filter every 20,000km.
If you do LESS miles oil ansd filter at least 1 time per year.
