From who? And what does it include? Both those things dramatically alter the cost.

Only 1 service in 5 years?

sounds expensive to me too, but depending on when the first service was done, and what they did they might have their work cut out.I remember helping to service a Cavalier years ago that hadn't been done for 5 years and the spark plugs wouldn't budge. Had to get someone to use a gas and air torch to heat things up to get them shifted. A lot of early Ford KA's that did low mileage had the same issue, drivers ignored service schedule because of ultra low mileage and plugs snap in the block when you try and remove them after a lot of years. There is a good chance that at a first service they didn't touch your plugs.

 

I'm not going to bring up the oil. Lets just hope low mileage doesn't knacker oil and that it miraculously does get hot enough to evaporate all condensation and do its job.

 

Good luck.

The oil and filters are changed every service anyway so changing the plugs ontop of that doesn't make it a major service lol.

Might just be easier to go elsewhere or do it yourself.

Plugs on the 1.0 EcoBoost are silly expensive which bumps up the major service price.  They're every 2 years/40k on the Courier - presumably as they're expected to work harder than a personal car.

The only other extra on a 2 year service is the air filter.

Brake fluid is recommended to be changed every 2 years so that may also be included in that quote but you'd have to check.
