Keep your Ford in tip top condition with regular services 0
Ford is one of the most popular makes of car in the UK, and a survey carried out by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders revealed that the bestselling new car in May 2010 was the Ford Focus, with the Ford Fiesta not far behind in third place.
Given the long history of the automotive company and its reputation for building cost-effective cars of the highest quality, this popularity is hardly surprising. Yet statistics recently published by the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency reveal that several models of cars built by Ford have some of the highest MOT failure rates in the UK. Figures for both the Mondeo and Ka show that 21% of all MOT tests on these cars in 2007 were recorded as failures.
Car servicing – essential to keep your Ford running
A large proportion of this number of MOT failures may be due to a lack of regular car servicing carried out on these vehicles. All cars need to be serviced regularly to keep them running smoothly. Doing so can not only extend the life of your car but also improve fuel efficiency and prevent more serious and costly problems from arising.
A Ford service carried out directly by the manufacturer at one of its main dealers can be expensive and does not always guarantee the best possible results. At Servicing Stop we provide Ford servicing at up to 60% less than the manufacturer’s prices. All of our Ford services are carried out by qualified and highly experienced mechanics, and your warranty is protected throughout.
Our Ford servicing technicians have access to the same information and Ford- specific tools used by mechanics at the main dealerships, but they may actually carry out more checks on your vehicle than a Ford technician would.
Servicing Stop – the cost-effective choice
Whatever model of Ford you own, with just a quick call to one of our advisors you can organise for your car to be serviced at a time convenient to you. We’ll book your car into one of over 750 Servicing Stop affiliated garages across the UK, and on the specified date your car will be picked up from either your home or place of work.
Ford’s are well built and attractively designed cars, but even the best engineering requires a helping hand now and then from a professional to keep it in peak condition.
