Enjoy an expert’s eye view of your vehicle with our free Ford Video Check, available with any Service and Repair work. The visual report, sent straight to your phone, covers 30 different aspects of your vehicle’s health, so you can see any issues first hand. And while you’ll receive a competitive quote for any work needed, you’re under no obligation to get it done.
You’ll also receive an electronic report with a simple traffic light system, showing you exactly how healthy your vehicle really is:
A red item means your vehicle needs urgent attention. In fact, it’s probably either illegal or unsafe to drive it in this condition, and requires immediate repair.
An amber lets you know there’s something wrong. Although it might not need sorting right now, it could save you time and money in the long run.
Green means all good. You don’t need to worry about any green items at least until your next service.
This is designed to spot any faults or failings in the air conditioning system, before they affect its performance or cause permanent and expensive damage.
The check includes:
We recommend that your air conditioning system is recharged with gas and lubricant every two years. This is because around 15% of the air-con gas escapes naturally each year, making the system increasingly inefficient.
Good tyres are vital for safe driving, as they affect the steering, braking and acceleration of any vehicle.
They’re especially important on wet roads which are pretty common in the UK. In fact, worn tyres can increase your stopping distance by up to 70% in damp conditions.
It’s also illegal to let your tyres become worn beyond a certain point. All of which means taking advantage of the free safety checks at Ford Dealers - or learning how to check tyres yourself - is a must.
The body work of your Ford is covered against rust-through from the inside for up to 12 years (depending on the model). Any costs of repairs are met by Ford provided the bodywork is cared for as described in your owner's guide. Damage or rusting should be reported immediately to your Ford dealer or to a Ford Accident Repair centre. The bi annual body and paint check is carried out and your service record is stamped. Any corrosion caused by an outside agency, chip or impact damage is however not covered.
