How Does Regular Maintenance Save Money And Your Car In The Long Run?

A car is made of tens of thousands of parts, which are a composition of different elements, including metal, glass, rubber and various petrochemical materials. And like any well-oiled machine, each part needs to be in good form to function seamlessly. Each part’s performance has a ripple effect on the other parts. If one begins to fail, it could affect how the whole car runs. There are a few things one needs do to keep the car maintained, but do you know how necessary is regular maintenance and repair, and what do we need to pay attention to?

How Does Regular Repair Help?

Your Ford is a technological tour de force that keeps you safe and pampered while you commute to work or explore new roads. This is why we believe that regular repair and maintenance should be carried out on your Ford, so you can keep it in optimum shape. This in turn means the best possible mileage for you from your favourite machine and the lowest possible emissions for the environment.

Regular repair and service helps to keep the car in top shape. All machines are subject to wear and tear as they are used, and the purpose of regular repair is to keep a check on the parts undergoing that abrasion condition. This regular check helps ascertain whether to adjust the affected parts or replace them to the original specifications so that you, as an owner and driver, are not affected adversely by these parts’ wearing off.

Scheduled Maintenance 101

After the car has been driven for a long period under different working conditions, all parts will be worn or deteriorated with the increase of mileage, use time and due to the impact of the use environment. If these parts further work without maintenance, they may exceed their service life and gradually degrade car performance. Eventually, problems will get extended to other components from specific parts. Therefore, the regular maintenance is very important, which is related to the service life of cars and driving safety.

All the spares at Ford Authorised Service Centres are genuine parts, meaning they are made to the highest standards and backed by warranty, guaranteeing peace of mind for you. All Ford technicians receive the best training and adhere to the same high-quality standards, so you can rest assured that your Ford is in safe hands.

Every Ford has a checklist that we diligently run through to make sure it’s in top condition. If required, the engine oil, oil filter, and air filter are changed. Wear-and-tear parts like the brake pads, clutch plates, and suspension are inspected and replaced if necessary. This is all part of regular repair, and it helps your Ford to deliver the best performance and mileage possible. Of course, it also helps that your Ford looks and feels like new after every service!

Maintenance Plans For Your Ford

Ford has several maintenance plans that can take a load off your mind when it comes to caring for your precious car. The Total Maintenance Plan covers periodic maintenance, repairs arising from electrical or mechanical failures, wear-and-tear parts, and labour for all these jobs. The Scheduled Service Plan covers all that is involved in the scheduled (or preventive) maintenance, including adjustments and replacement of engine oil, oil and air filters, brake fluid, etc. What’s more, both these plans are transferable to new owners as well, meaning your Ford’s resale value will remain surprisingly high.

Already own a Ford and would like to subscribe to a similar plan? We’ve thought of you as well! The Flexi Service Plan can be purchased at any point during Ford ownership; it can save you as much as 25% of the service cost, as well as Roadside Assistance!

As a car owner, it is our responsibility to regularly maintain your car like you would for any other type of property you own. Ignoring your car could put your safety at risk. So, take a pledge to care for your Ford and attend to its every need so that it can serve you faithfully for many years to come.
