Ford & Mitsubishi Scheduled Maintenance

Routine maintenance use to be very cut and dry, but in today's high tech world it is not that simple. The manufacturer changes their maintenance requirement based on the advancement in their product. Your warranty manual has your specific recommended maintenance schedule. Below is a generic maintenance schedule which we follow at the Arrow Ford Service. This guide, in conjunction with your warranty manual, and driving habits allows our service teams to help you maintain your vehicle in peak running condition.
