I want to buy a used car, but the first service done was later than recommended - will this void the warranty?

I'm looking to buy a 2015 Ford Focus Estate. I noticed that the first service was 18,500 miles rather than the recommended 12,500 miles. Will this void the warranty and could it have damaged the engine? It's a car that I intend to keep for five years.

That probably voids Ford's warranty. Ford is tougher about warranties these days. Check with Customer Services: customerservicecontactnumber.uk/ford / Tel: 0203 564 4444
