To prevent damage to your EcoSport due to neglect, a strict schedule in performing vehicle maintenance procedure must be followed. This is called the Periodic Maintenance Schedule (PMS).
The idea behind the PMS is simple: perform maintenance procedure as you cover some road distance (measured in km) and as the vehicle ages. Consumable parts are replaced once they reach the end of their service life (as checked against a certain threshold). Below is a list of key maintenance procedure that must be attended to as part of the PMS:
Replace oil every 10,000 km (at most every 20,000 km)
Replace oil filter whenever new oil is used
Replace drive belt every 80,000 km to 100,000 km
Replace engine batteries (DIN 44 or 55) every 2 to 3 years
Replace coolant fluid every 240,000 km or top-up as needed
Replace brake/clutch fluid every 60,000 km or top-up as needed
Replace all tires every 5 years (including spare tire)
Replace cabin filter (air-con) every 20,000 km or as needed
Clean brakes every 10,000 km or as needed
Replace brake pads/shoes once minimum thickness is reached
Replace spark plugs every 40,000 km (up to 80,000 km) or as needed
Replace engine air filter every 40,000 km or as needed
Replace fuel filter every 40,000 km or as needed
Replace wipers every 5 years or as needed
Replace remote key battery every 3 to 5 years or as needed
Perform an under wash every 2 years (optional)
Perform an engine wash every 2 years (optional)
Replace transmission fluid AT/MT every 240,000 km
Replace clutch material (MT and AT) as needed (clutch material are designed to outlast the life of a vehicle when used properly)
Multi-point inspection such as checking instrument gauges, warning lights, horns, bulbs, washer and wiper operation, exterior lights, handbrake, seat belts, hood latch and hinges, wiring, pipes, hoses, heater, radiator, engine drive belt, steering and suspension, under body, brake system, A/C, bolt tightening, wheel rotation (as needed), refilling of wiper wash fluid, and battery health check, are also performed during PMS
Only vehicles that follow the dealer-recommended PMS are eligible to receive warranty claims within the vehicle’s warranty period of 3 years, or an equivalent of 100,000 km distance covered. Failure to perform key maintenance procedures will lead to costly repairs. Keep your EcoSport in good condition by following the recommended PMS.
We picked some strawberries in this popular destination in La Trinidad, Baguio. Bring a cooler with lots of ice if you plan on bringing home your hand-picked berries. Enjoy picking early in the morning, and don’t rush!

EcoSport’s remote key may need battery replacement anywhere from 3 to 10 year interval, depending on usage. The remote uses a CR2032, a type of lithium button cell used in small low-power devices. Only a small prying tool (such as screw driver) is needed to open the remote’s casing and swap the old battery with a new one.
