Why choose Ford Motorcraft 4+? Big dealers often have a reputation for being expensive and lacking the personal touch, so What Car? and Autocar headed to Motorcraft centres around the UK to have a look for themselves.

Ford Motorcraft provides a 30-point eCHECK, which is essentially a medical for your car, for free. But how does it work? From tyres, to oil levels to bodywork, Ford’s Master Technicians will check the health of every aspect.

You then receive a detailed report, with a traffic-light system to determine what work needs doing. Green means a clean bill of health, amber points out problems that will need work at some stage, and red means repair work needs carrying out immediately.

If any work is needed you’ll receive an estimate up front, and you decide whether or not to have the work done.
