For the first time Autodata has published an industry report that shares not only the top ten most serviced cars in the UK, but also the top ten most serviced LCVs; motorcycles; hybrids; petrol and diesel vehicles.
The Ford Focus was the world’s top selling car worldwide in 2004 and the top selling in the UK from 1998 until 2009, when it was dethroned by the Ford Fiesta.
Considering that there are more than 1.5 million Ford Focuses on UK roads, it’s no surprise that it is currently the most popular model seen in UK garages.
The previous version, the Ford Focus (98) and the later version, the Ford Focus (11) were also featured in the UK’s top 20 most serviced cars this year.
