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!

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.
