With months of restrictive travel, it is possible that your vehicle has been left unused for extended durations, exposing it to a greater risk of damage if unchecked or unmaintained. But don’t fret—this is completely avoidable.
First thing to remember is to follow your regular PMS schedule. During these checks, qualified Ford technicians use Ford-approved fluids, filters, and genuine parts.
Also make sure to familiarize yourself with the Vehicle Report Card (VRC), a comprehensive health check summary of your vehicle’s key wear and tear parts and systems. This will let you know which parts need immediate replacement.
It is equally important to look after your vehicle’s replaceable parts, as by design, these would need to be replaced regularly compared to others. Changing your battery and air cabin filter are crucial nowadays, especially with the rainy season and the ongoing pandemic.
To help Ford owners who need these parts replacements, Ford Philippines is offering a limited all-in battery package and a new cabin filter available on select Ford vehicles.
The all-in battery package is available to customers with a Ford Focus, Fiesta, EcoSport, Ranger or Everest, and already includes parts and labor costs at a promotional price that starts at P6,300. All parts of eligible Ford vehicles covered by the promotion automatically come with a 24-month warranty.
Meanwhile, the Motorcraft micronAir proTect Cabin Filter is a premium cabin filter that offers superior filtering functionality at a competitive price point. This is available to Ford Ranger and Everest models (model year 2015 onward) as an upgrade to the standard cabin filter.
The micronAir filter is effective against nearly 100% of allergens of 2 microns size or larger, and against small micro-organisms such as bacteria and fungal spores. It is also capable of filtering against threats inside the vehicle with 99.9% effectiveness at inactivating viruses such as Swine Flu (H1N1) and HCov-229E that come into contact with the special active layer.
