Here’s Why 2018 Ford EcoSport Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Ford EcoSport and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your EcoSport has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine EcoSport maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2018 Ford EcoSport!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your EcoSport running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2018 Ford EcoSport problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ford EcoSport

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Ford EcoSport for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your EcoSport. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2018 Ford EcoSport be ready for a new battery? 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 EcoSport may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford EcoSport battery. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty EcoSport) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford EcoSport won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Ford EcoSport engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2018 EcoSport. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Ford EcoSport? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford EcoSport can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Ford EcoSport 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. Components within your Ford EcoSport's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Ford EcoSport maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ford EcoSport cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Ford EcoSport radiator? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Ford EcoSport maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Ford EcoSport? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2018 EcoSport is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Ford EcoSport to high mileage oil? If your Ford EcoSport 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!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Ford? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Ford EcoSport in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
