Well it's on the official Ford site (click on the link) and advertised on The AA website, so why shouldn't it be real?

The Winter Check and M&S voucher is for any vehicle but strangely the Nectar points are only awarded if you have a Ford vehicle.

Well the deal is for any car (you have to call them to book a non-Ford in). Besides which would look like a better picture? A white TT or a Ford Focus? I know which I'd prefer.

Let me get this straight - for this (very basic check) you pay £20 and get a £20 M&S voucher for the privilege?

I do the same check on my vehicle on a monthly basis (with little effort). In my opinion, any caring owner can do those checks without much effort, but appreciate checking the battery and suspension is not on the average owners check sheet.

My car gets the very same check if I drive it into the dealership (and yes, the manufacturer is a prestige car manufacturer but no, they are not and never generous). Guess how much they charge me for it? A ridiculous £0.

This is cold. Why? - well because Ford have just got a marketing scheme with M&S, where they are just tying spend back into M&S' lovely stores and Ford can spot potential problems with cars to fix them and make money (whether directly off the owner or the warranty company that underwrites Ford warranties).

if they do pick up work to be done under warranty, then surely thats better for people than it outside warranty... if it is outside warranty then at least you can go elsewhere IF you want the work done. I'd rather somebody else check my car whilst i was inside drinking a free tea/coffee.

no pleasing some people

Yes I appreciate that not all will have mechanical knowledge like myself. And this is great for those who dont. However, my point is that this is something dealers often offer for free anyway. Its just glorified with the M&S voucher marketing promo that I can see youve got sucked into. Oooh and the free coffee.
