Maintenance SCHEDULE

Every new Ford of Canada vehicle comes with a detailed maintenance schedule that has been carefully designed to help keep your car or light-duty truck operating at peak efficiency.

This maintenance schedule is set out in your Customer Information Guide (as we call it: Owner's Manual), along with other handy tips such as managing cold starts, maintaining correct tire pressures, checking fluid levels and helping to keep your vehicle looking like new.

There is some variability within your vehicle’s maintenance schedule; these variations are designed to reflect different driving conditions and driving styles. Check with your service advisor at 250-260-3411 to determine the specific maintenance schedule that will best match your requirements.

The service technicians at Watkin Motors undergo exhaustive factory training and, as a result, are intimately familiar with your vehicle. They also use factory approved parts that have been performance tested to ensure maximum durability.

To book a maintenance appointment for your vehicle give our Service Department a call at 250-260-3411 or use our appointment form available online.
