The company will carry out less work on the first service and alternate services due to the “durability of vehicle components”. Ford said: “With fewer parts now requiring regular checks, it has been possible to reduce workshop labour times.”
This means Ford can reduce the costs of its services. On a Ford Focus 1.6 petrol model, the new service schedule means a saving of £168.95 over a three-year/62,500-mile period.
Service intervals remain at 12 months or 12,500 miles.
