I was pretty sure I saw that on the national Ford commercials at that price but it could just be regional.. It would never hurt to ask for "The Works" for $39.95.
I do this too, same price although i do mine every 3,000 miles. it's a good service for the price.

We have it down here in TX as well. I've already set up appointments months from now on the Ford site and The Works coupon is listed there, so I assume its a national promotion.

danbfree I just do the $40 "Works" every 7500 and get the oil changed and tires rotated. Normally I do oil changes sooner but it includes semi-synthetic so I think I'm good. I've never seen the "Change oil soon" light come on... But I definitely need to do the cabin air filter, I'll have to see the you tube video for the "tricks" to do it.

I got a refund for the maintenance contract after the second incident and the dent happened when I brought the car in for a TSB fix. Not trying to hammer on Ford service, but before you drop the cash, make sure to check out the service department first.

Back on topic; I know oil change intervals have gotten much more spread out in the last 10 years. The question I have and have not been able to find an answer to is what about the first change interval? I know most manufacturers put "break in" additives on the first fill and that sometimes the first interval is shorter than the rest for this reason. I have always been one for going no longer than 5K between changes, but this is also the first car I have owned that has not had forced induction of some sort. (I have a 2012 Focus Titanium 5-Door).
Modern Machining technology has pretty much done away with break in. I like to change it at 1500 . Just in cause sealants or whatever trash could be floating around from assembly.

NavyZX5 The cabin air filter is not too hard to get, its behind the center console. Go to YouTube and search for a video showing the tricks to get it swapped.
