In our ever-busy world, it can be challenging to keep up with our vehicle maintenance as our own hectic schedules spill over with personal and professional commitments. Ford is looking to make it easier on owners to keep their cars running in top shape by expanding their Mobile Service Pilot Program, which brings a fully-equipped Ford Transit van to your home or office to complete light maintenance, like oil changes, battery replacements or tire rotations. The work is completed by a Ford factory-trained Technician and customers can book their appointment in advance for a time and location that’s most convenient for them.
Ford is currently testing the program in California, but plans to expand to other dealers in Texas, Illinois, New Jersey and Florida. The automaker intends to use this test to determine whether or not they will roll-out the program further to more dealerships across the U.S.
In the U.K., Ford has experience with this type of mobile service for commercial vehicles since 2017, plus other brands, like Tesla, have also experimented with this type of operation. There’s no word yet if the Mobile Service Pilot Program will make its way to the PNW. If and when it does, our team at Sound Ford will share the great news with our customers.
