Getting regular Ford service isn’t just another errand you have to run. It’s the most affordable and effective way to ensure that your Ford car, truck, or SUV continues to start, stop, and steer the way it’s supposed to.
Whether you’re looking to sell your vehicle in the future or you want to pass it down to the next generation, Ford service is a key to Ford ownership—and Waconia Ford can help.
How Often Do I Need Ford Service?
Regular car service and inspections can help to keep your parts working properly and reduce the need for costly repairs. Here are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind about scheduling your next Ford service appointment with Waconia Ford:
- Oil Changes: Routine oil changes are one of the most important services you can get for your vehicle. While you’ll always want to check your owner’s manual, it’s a good idea to bring your Ford in for an oil change around every 7,500 miles.
- Battery Inspections: Batteries last three to five years, but if you notice any indications of corrosion or leaking, like a bulging battery case or the smell of rotten eggs, you’ll want to bring your Ford F-150 or Ford Edge into our dealership right away.
- Tire Rotations: Tire rotations are important for your vehicle’s alignment and even tire wear. Ford vehicles can benefit from a rotation every 5,000 to 8,000 miles.
- Brake Inspection: You’ll probably need new brake pads between 30,000-60,000 miles, depending on what kind of driving you do. That’s why it’s important to bring your vehicle in for a brake inspection around every six months.
