On Wednesday my girlfriend took the
for its 2nd year service at my local Ford garage as I've been away with work.
I looked in the service book beforehand and it just says its a major service but doesn't tell you whats included.

So i get home today and go through what they did and basically it was a lot of checks but only the following was changed:

Oil Filter
Oil
Odour Filter

I then rang Ford and they said every major service or 2 years the brake fluid should be changed?????

Does anyone know what should be include in the 2nd year service.

Many thanks in advance,
Stuart

As far as I can remember all of the above is correct for the second service. The one thing is most do not include the brake fluid in the standard price and you have to ask for it and pay for it seperately!

Its not that i'm worried, i just thought for £205 that it would have been part of the service.

I did get 3 main dealer stickers on my car though so guess thats where my money went!!!

Full 2nd service at a performance car specialist on my ST, included all filters, new plugs (3 years is a long time to leave them) and a brake fluid service for £ 270.00

I know what the schedule says but my car is driven in a spirited fashion so deserves some TLC

I wouldnt let Ford touch it to be honest

I totally agree with you Si.

I even have 3 really good performance specialists near me but decided to go for the official Ford stamp in my service book.

I wont make that mistake next time.

Think pants down is an understatement. Ive had my pants down and been well f
d!

Id go back and ask for and itemised invoice. The parts would have been around £40. I got a 20% discount on mine so even with a break fluid change included at full price, it wouldn't have been more than £175. You might get some money back, or they might just think you like having your pants round you ankles and offer it to you again
Seriously though, kick off, there all robbing
when it comes to servicing.
