Service Your Ford EcoSport in Jacksonville, IL

The Ford EcoSport is an affordable and popular pick amongst Ford lovers in Jacksonville, IL, but what is the best way to maintain it?

That's where we come in. Our friendly and knowledgeable service team is equipped and ready to service your EcoSport, using only OEM parts and the very best equipment.

And though we pride ourselves on providing reliable and reputable customer care, it is ultimately up to you to keep your Ford EcoSport SUV maintained and in good shape. That's why we've composed the following information with the hopes of giving you guidelines on when and how often to bring your freshly purchased Ford Escort in for servicing.

Service Intervals

Generally speaking, most vehicles should be seen regularly, with every 30,000 miles being the standard. However, if you've spent any amount of time driving a vehicle, you know that circumstances can land you in the shop more often than that.

Whether it be for an oil change, customization or a concerning sound you're hearing, you'll need to bring your Ford SUV in for an inspection, and potentially, a repair.

The following are some of the most common jobs performed by our service department, as well as the intervals of time you can expect to wait before having your vehicle serviced again:

Brakes

Assuming you've had no issues with your brakes, you can expect to have your brake pads replaced every 10,000-20,000 miles.

With rotors, you may be able to wait until every 50,000 to 70,000 miles.

Having said that, if you notice that your vehicle vibrates after you hit your brakes, makes screeching or grinding noises or that your brakes feel "squishy" under your foot, you should have your EcoSport's brakes inspected immediately.

Air Filters

Air filters keep the air that runs through your heating and cooling system fresh and clean. To keep your EcoSport's air filters in top condition, you'll likely need to get them replaced every 15,000-30,000 miles. This will depend heavily on where you live, how often you drive, and the number of pollutants in your environment.

Tire Replacement

Service intervals for tires typically range every 25,000-50,000 miles. But this is assuming that your tires are new, to begin with.

Remember that your tread should be at least 2/32-inches deep to be considered legally safe in the U.S. If you are unsure of your tread depth, we will gladly look over your tires for you and provide you with quality options that can fit nearly any budget.

Battery Replacement

Many drivers wait until the SUV battery dies before acting, but it is best to replace your vehicle's battery every three years or so. If, however, you notice that your EcoSport engine starts to slow, struggles when starting, or has trouble when there is a shift in seasons, you may need a battery sooner.

Of course, if your vehicle doesn't start or you notice a foul odor along with the aforementioned symptoms, you'll want to get your vehicle to your nearest Ford servicer right away.
