Regularly servicing your car means that you are more likely to have a car that car that runs smoothly and efficiently and minimises the risk of it breaking down and incurring unexpected repair bills. You may think you can save money by not servicing your car, but in reality, a service can pick up smaller issues with parts of the car where standard wear and tear require a little minor maintenance but, when left, can fast become a costly major repair or replacement.
There are two types of service for your car, which one you need will depend on your car’s mileage, age and when your previous service was carried out.
An interim service includes several checks, parts changes and fluid top-ups. The changes include engine oil and oil filter, in addition wheel nut torque is checked and adjusted where necessary. We will also check and change the tyre pressure and top up the clutch fluid, power steering reservoir, brake fluid level and windscreen washer if required.
We will also perform checks on other parts of the car, including tyre tread depth, brake discs and brake pads. If any additional work is required on these parts we’ll get in touch with you before carrying out any additional work to make sure that you are aware of any additional costs that are incurred when carrying out the work.
