Car has covered more than 71k kms. Turning 5 years old this October.
Will give the car to my trusted FNG since there's no major thing to be done in the car and I will save a lot on labor costs. Changing just the oil and filters and maybe brake pads. They are still going on at 71k kms which is surprisingly good.

The mechanic used to work in Bosch and handled luxury cars as well so it's not a problem to get the ford service done from him.
Got the service done
Oil and oil filter - 1700rs
Air filter - 360rs
Brake pads - 1700. Bought from kashmeri gate market but the mechanic said original pads are good for another 15k kms[shock]
Car's odo is at 72k kms.
Will get it changed in the next service.

Also the oil level was low , car has run 11k kms since last service. Mechanic said there's no problem in the engine[think] and I don't find any issues at all.
Or is it the ford engine ? I noticed low engine oil ( not this much) in 2nd year of ownership also.

It's not on the skill of the mechanic, what I meant was regarding the tools they use.
If you are confident , no worries.

In Trivandrum's Ford service centre- For Brake pad - I have seen them using Vernier and taking the reading, they have a tolerance of 10mm (I am not sure on the value).
Usually maruti and Hyundai technicians say - "Ath iniyum odikolum sir , till next service"(It will run fine till next service sir )

Ford measure everything and give a report card which maruti and hyundai doesn't.
And ford parts lasts longer too. Brake pads , air conditioning parts etc are not gone even at 5 years /72k kms.

Got the detailing done too. But it's a waste on red color. I forgot I did polishing in December 2019 as well. Shine doesn't last too long since guard cleans it every second day.

I would like to add not all things lasted that long. The power window switches are acting up again. 1 of the passenger door power window won't go up but wil go down. I did change 2 switches under warranty plus one of the 4 power window switch on the driver side is on it's final breathe. It will break within a month.
