What to Know About 2017 Ford Escape Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Ford Escape and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Escape could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Escape, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2017 Ford Escape maintenance schedule!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Escape perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Ford Escape problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford Escape Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2017 Ford Escape to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Escape. 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 2017 Ford Escape be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford Escape battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2017 Ford Escape running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 Escape. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2017 Ford Escape? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford Escape 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! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Ford Escape suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Ford Escape's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Ford Escape 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Ford Escape engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Ford Escape radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2017 Ford Escape maintenance and repairs.

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

2017 Ford Escape Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Ford Escape. Get answers to common Ford Escape maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Ford Escape? You know your Ford Escape better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Ford Escape need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Ford Escape? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Ford? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Ford Escape 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.
