Hey Folks,

My 2017 FFE has reached its first maintenance schedule (20,000 miles). After seeing what's on the list I question whether or not
I should bother with it. Rotate tires, check brakes, air filter etc....

Should I bother? Its only 75 bucks. Or is it a waste of time. On my ICE vehicles I had them at ford on schedule on time without batting an eye.
Thanks,


The only air filter is the cabin filter. I don't think I have ever changed one of those on any car I've owned!

Do you have a jack and torque wrench? Takes 15 minutes to rotate tires on your own and you save $75. You can take a glance at the pads at the same time. I am sure they are fine. I expect my brake pads to out last this car. Pads make noise by design when they need replacing.

EVs are pretty maintenance free. Enjoy it!

My selling Ford Dealer has done complimentary Tire Rotations on all of my Fords !

I get my tires rotated (and balanced) for free at America's Tire (also known as Discount Tire in some markets).

Ick! Heavily recommend you do it. I change mine every 1.5 years or so, and they come out pretty black.

:lol: My last car had no cabin air filter. In fact this is the first vehicle I've owned that has one.

The cabin air filter is cheap, about $14 on Amazon, maybe less if you look around or get an off brand.
