There's a lot to love about owning a Ford—from comfortable accommodations and practical versatility to capable performance and cutting-edge tech features. And with routine service by the certified technicians here at Duval Ford, you can look forward to a satisfying and reliable driving experience for years to come. Whether you've owned your Escape, Explorer, F-150, or Mustang for one year or six, following the manufacturer's recommended maintenance is the best way to ensure vehicle longevity. But that's not the only advantage. Here are a few reasons why routine service is important.

  • Reliability and Ownership Costs: Routine maintenance ensures your vehicle stays running as intended, mitigating the hassle and expense of larger unexpected repairs down the road.

  • Safety: Regularly servicing your vehicle can help catch small issues before they become big problems that affect its safe operation. Your car contains several parts that wear down naturally under normal operating conditions. Brakes are likely the first components that spring to mind when thinking about safety. But other parts like the suspension tires, suspension, and steering all contribute to your car's ability to reduce speed, stop, and avoid hazards. These items—particularly brakes and tires—can degrade over time, making them less effective and posing a danger if they're not adequately addressed.

  • Mileage: Issues like engine oil degradation, improper tire inflation, and wheel misalignment cause force your car's engine to work harder, increasing fuel consumption. Proper maintenance keeps the engine's workload in check and helps improve efficiency.

  • Resale: A properly functioning vehicle will have a higher appraisal value than one needing repairs. Routine maintenance is key to ensuring you receive top dollar for your trade when it's time to upgrade.
