No more free servicing to 60,000km!

I've got a mate that ordered an XR6 HP, thinking he was going to get an AU II. He just took delivery of a spanking new AU III.

Not being one to complain, he noticed that on his invoice it was listed as an AUII. It was also listed as having free servicing up to 60,000km. Talk about great timing!

But it highlighted the fact that you no longer get free servicing to 60,000km on the AU III.

Was everyone here already aware of this? Because I sure wasn't !

Yeh they anounced that at the launch They said they were going to offer discount servicing if you prepaid when you bought the car or some other gimmick.Its beter not to have it really that way people hopefully won' be waiting for 15000k's which is too long between services.

15,000 is way too long for a new car!

Do yourself a favour 1500 1st oil change. 5000 second oill change and then stick to the 15,000 -30,000 45,000 and 60,000

Isn't there some sort of package deal they have replaced it with?

Yeah Laminge, I was saying this to my boss when I took delivery of the work AUII ute. I was thinking give it an oil change after a 1500 or so, then go the regular services. I even thought every 15000k was too much. Would be for a normally driven car..stop start stuff, but I reckon the ute is fine.big k stuff. Already done 9 1/2k in 6 weeks.

I heard that while Ford is not offering it standard on the the car now you can buy a package for servicing separately?

Bloody free servicing, never got them on the utes anyway:dead:

Seriously though, oil is the only thing that needs changing early on before 15000km. I would encourage everyone to do the filter/oil themselves, only takes a minute, and you can use some really good oil. I would hate anyone to get the idea that they should take their car for a full Ford service (especially since they will charge you through the a#$% for what ever shit they put in), before its required.

Cheers

Thought it was time to try a turbo for a change :)
