Why service your car?
Servicing your car is not a requirement by law but there are a number of sound reasons why your car should be serviced on a regular basis.
Servicing your car regularly will help to identify problems before they become major and expensive ones. Servicing will ensure vital checks are carried out to important components such as your braking system and suspension to make sure they don’t let you down when you need to rely on them. Regular servicing will give you peace of mind that your car is in road-worthy condition.
You can save a few pounds by skipping interim servicing but this false economy. Regular servicing identify issues early on that could later become costly and expensive to rectify. As an example if we look at your, it’s used to lubricate and protect moving parts inside your engine. Without it, your engine could seize and cost several thousand pounds to repair or replace. As part of our service schedule includes checking the engine oil and, if required, replacing it with fresh oil that is specifically designed to keep your car and engine running smoothly.
Servicing your car at regular intervals can also save you money on fuel costs. Replacing oil and air filters for new ones make for a smoother running engine and a more fuel efficient car, ensuring your tyres are at the right pressure will improve fuel consumption.
A car that is serviced at regular intervals will improve the life of your car. The better you look after it – the longer it is likely to last. And with more and more people choosing to hold on to their car for longer – regular servicing is crucial if you are to enjoy many years of trouble-free driving.
