first service 20k for 1.4t?

Post by danx55 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 10:09 am

hi guys.

my swap sri is on about 17.5k miles
..i assume first service is 20k?

... so was thinking of sticking it in early while dealer sorts out a few prep issues :-)

good idea? ...or don't bother?

will it be around £300 do you think

many thanks
dan

How old is the car, and what does the oil life say?

Do you mean March 2018? If so it will be due it's 1st service by next month as it's 20k,or 12 months, or when the oil life reaches 0%, whichever comes first, but may well already have had it. I've not heard of any yet that have got anywhere near the 20000 mile interval before hitting 0% oil life.

Your new car should have had at least 2 services and will be due a 3rd in March, if not already had a 3rd one.
It should have had the software update, double check on that.
You will only have 1 month manufacturers warranty I take it. If it was me I would consider purchasing a good extended warranty. You can pay monthly for a 12 month extended warranty and probably cancel it after 3 or 4 months when you are comfortable with everything.

If you are buying it from a dealer and it is near to wanting a service I would expect that to be done as part of the deal. I would also expect at least 6 months warranty with the car.

Dan I would want a year warranty on the car , and as 1900sr said the service should be done prior to you collecting. Last thing you want is to go in next month for a service and more outlay. My fiesta st was due a service when I bought it and without hesitation the ford dealer did it , salesman said he would be embarrassed selling me a car and not doing the service due.
