Bye bye 3 years warranty if you do the 1st service yourself ? Is it worth it ?

Not if you use genuine Ford parts & you get a VAT registered garage to stamp your service book. This is what I will be doing.

that £100+ may seem alot for a (SAFTEY) check and oil and filter, but what if you do have a problem with your car?

who pays for the tech who has to fix your car when it goes wrong, pay for training, pays for special tools to fix your car properly and safely? pays for the free courtesy car, etc etc.

take the cost of oil , filter out , and 20% vat out the bill, ??

Why pay x amount for a new or nearly new Ford that comes with a potentially valuable 3 year warranty & then choose to void it to save £ 50 odd quid ? ?

False economy & bizarre choice i.m.o.

Not as daft as the comments your making.

You've spent X amount on a brand new car and are then skimping on the servicing because you feel like your being ripped off, risking the warranty that is provided for 3 years/60000 miles along as it is serviced ( by ford or any garage as long as ford parts are used). And also affecting the resale value of the car. Someone buying a used car will look for a service history and if possible the remains manufacturers warranty. If handing back to ford or P/Xing, no service history will also lower the price.

Still, it's your hard earned at the end of the day.

Spot on,lets put it this way.

My car is a 2011 and still go to ford as it came with a 2 year cover in with price.

For the sake of £50 and the knowing it's all sorted and cover is fine.

But we all have our own choice but i know what i would do,even more if a new car or close.
