Extending due service date

Post by CC Steve »

Does anyone have any input on how much I can delay my annual service without affecting warranty?

I have a 2018 PX2 and while I did reasonable k's when it was young, it has only done 6,000km in the last year. Based on last year's service date, I need to do the 4 year/60,000km service in 4 weeks, but it has only done 40,000km. I also did a couple of oil and filter changes myself between services 1 and 3, at around 7,000km.

I feel that getting the service done again now is pretty much wasteful but I don't want to risk warranty issues.

From my experience Ford are very anal about service intervals and maintaining warranty and actively search for any angle to void claim.

But that is in Thailand.

Best to ask your local.

If you don't want to risk your warranty then have the recommended service done regardless of your low K's; I'm in the same position with low K's but I do all my servicing every 12 months regardless, even after having my warranty run out.
I like to know my vehicle is maintained to the highest standard.

Cheers.

you think the boot lickers at the Ford service centre are providing that ?

If you don’t to the service on time Ford will void any warranty claim they can and you’ll have very little defence particularly if it’s mechanical

Most likely not but the dealer boot lickers do not service my ranger since I have my own trusted mechanic. ;)

Unfortunately you have to go to dealers for things like PCM & map updates.

Maybe for a map update but you don't really need pcm updates unless your ranger has a problem that might need one.

I've had 2 PCM updates already to stop the cold combustion rattle.

How recent were the two updates Gerry? I have had one update but was not aware there was a second one. First one definitely helped but now that the weather has gone cold again the rattle is still there (although definitely not as bad as it was).

Ok thanks for the comments. I have booked in just within the 12 months period to avoid any warranty risk.
