Hey guys,
im after some advice.
My sisters bf has a Focus and its in need of a service. He isnt in to cars at all and it has been a while, both in km's and time, since its last service.
Should i get it taken to a Ford dealership or take it to a local mechanic? im from sydney but the car is in Seddon in Melbourne, if anyone knows a good place to take it that would be great,
cheers

Ultra tune are best for servicing modern cars.About half the price of Ford, and with warranty.

i forgot about ultratune.
I think the car may still be in warranty, but if the service history hasnt been upheld the warranty would be void wouldnt it?
might try and book it into ultratune
cheers

Definitely not-they are the warranty specialists, honoured by all makers.

na na i meant with ford. I meant that becoz the car hasnt had the scheduled services, ford wouldnt uphold the warranty, which you mean going to them is pointless, as they just charge more for the same work lol
il definately give ultratune a call for him,
cheers

When I have had a car from New,I let the dealership do the first service,then it is Ultratune all the way. No issues.
