Your Guide to 2006 Ford Escape Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Ford Escape to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Escape. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Escape maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2006 Ford Escape!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 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 Escape running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2006 Ford Escape problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ford Escape

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2006 Ford Escape and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Escape’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2006 Ford Escape? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 Escape 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Escape) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford Escape could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 2006 Ford Escape engine. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 Escape, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2006 Ford Escape.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford Escape can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Ford Escape steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Ford Escape's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Ford Escape services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ford Escape cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Ford Escape? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2006 Ford Escape maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
