Here’s Why 2013 Ford C-Max Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Ford C-Max and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your C-Max. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine C-Max maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 Ford C-Max!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Ford themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your C-Max's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2013 Ford C-Max problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ford C-Max

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Ford C-Max and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your C-Max's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2013 Ford C-Max. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your C-Max may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford C-Max battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Ford C-Max won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2013 Ford C-Max's engine run smoother. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 2013 C-Max, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2013 Ford C-Max.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford C-Max can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Ford C-Max steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Ford C-Max's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Ford C-Max maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Ford C-Max’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
