Service Advice

7 posts in this topic

Hi all,

My beloved S1600 is coming to the end of its 3 year warranty period and has only had 1 service since it was registered.

It's now due a second service at 19,200 miles.

What i'm asking is, do i have the service done at ford or could i go elsewhere?

If it's 3 years old technically it's due its 37.5k major service.

You can use any VAT registered garage as long as they follow Ford's schedule and use OEM parts.

nice St btw :D

So would this mean they will forget the 2nd service altogether or just add them both together ?

The major service will include everything that would have been done in the 2nd service. Also you should be having a service every year (or 12,500 miles, whichever comes first), some recommend even more frequent than that.

wow, every year is thats news to me - are they compulsory or just a recommendation ?

It's just a recommendation, but I don't know if it's a requirement for the warranty.

Usually compulsory otherwise it voids warranty because if anything goes wrong they'll blame you for not servicing it at correct intervals.
