What is Ford Motorcraft?

Ford Motorcraft is an annual service which covers all aspects of an older car’s performance – from brakes and steering and fluid levels and battery life – we take care of all the little jobs to give you that extra piece of mind that your car will stay healthy. Just like our other servicing options we only use only genuine Ford parts, all diagnostics are carried out by Ford Technicians and all work carried out is protected by the Rates Ford guarantee of absolute quality.

What does it include?

The Rates Ford Motocraft Service includes: Set pricing for all general repairs. FREE Vehicle checks (30 point echeck / wheel alignment / steering / brakes / battery), top-ups of all fluids (oil / antifreeze / brake fluid / windscreen washer / power steering fluid / transmission oil (if required)). We will also replace your air filter or pollen filter (if required) and ensure all tyre pressures are correct – if the wear on the tyres is uneven we will even rotate your tyres for you. Once that is all done we will wash and vaccum the car so you are all set to go! (For a full breakdown of fixed pricing and jobs included in this service option, please see the bottom of this page). As an added bonus, all of our service options will get you £5 off your next MOT (£30 rather than £35).
