Frequently Asked Service Questions

Q: I Own a Certified Pre-Owned Ford Car. What Kind of Warranty Coverage Do I Have?

A: This depends on whether your car is Ford Gold Certified or Ford Blue Certified. If it’s Gold Certified, your car has a 12-month/12,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty and a seven-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. Meanwhile, Blue Certified cars get a 90-day/4,000-mile comprehensive limited warranty. Also, don’t forget that each tier comes with an allotment of FordPass™ Rewards Points. You can use these towards your first couple of maintenance visits, where you’ll benefit from genuine Ford parts and expert service.

Q: Why do my Car’s Brakes Squeak?

A: There are several reasons why your car’s brakes might be squeaking. Changes in the weather and related road conditions, how long you’ve gone without driving the car, and what kind of brake pads your car has are key factors, as well as the condition of the brake pads. If the squeaking persists or gets worse, it’s probably time for brakes replacement. This is an inexpensive, professional service we offer that oftentimes also comes with great savings via our Ford service specials.

Q: How Often Does My Car Need New Oil?

A: The rule of thumb – whether you just purchased a new Ford SUV or have been driving the same vehicle for a while – is six months/5,000 miles. However, the age, model, and condition of your car play a big role here, so we recommend visiting our local Ford dealership where we can give you an accurate assessment.

Q: What Should I Do if My Car’s Check Engine Light Comes On?

A: There are lots of reasons why your car’s ‘check engine light could come on. In many cases, the issue isn’t critical, especially if your vehicle shows no signs of impairment. That said, it’s still a good idea to schedule a multipoint inspection at Waconia Ford.
