Your Guide to 2017 Ford C-Max Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Ford C-Max, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance.

There's no need to guess when it's time to get C-Max maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2017 Ford C-Max!

Ford knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2017 Ford C-Max problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ford C-Max

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2017 Ford C-Max and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your C-Max’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2017 Ford C-Max. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Ford C-Max battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your C-Max stranded. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 Ford C-Max running newer, longer. See Ford's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2017 C-Max in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2017 Ford C-Max.

Routine upkeep for your Ford C-Max suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Ford C-Max steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Ford C-Max's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Ford C-Max maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ford C-Max cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Ford C-Max radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2017 Ford C-Max maintenance.

  • When should I have Ford C-Max alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2017 C-Max is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Ford C-Max need high mileage oil? If your Ford C-Max has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Ford dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Ford C-Max, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
