If you were wondering, here are the main reasons why we recommend servicing your car.
Keeps the engine heathy
Cars are designed to require regular maintenance to keep them in good working order. Having the oil and filters changed at regular intervals prevents any dirt or dust getting into the engine's components which can potentially cause major issues. It will also prolong the engine's longevity and ultimately the car's overall life span.
It helps to maintain your vehicles value
A car is a huge investment to anyone and it's important to protect that investment where possible. It's a fact that your car will be worth more when you come to sell it if it has a full service history record, many buyers look for cars with good service history as it is a sign of how well they have been looked after by their previous owner. Also, if the car is written off in an accident the insurance company may pay out less because a car with no service history is worth less than a car with full service history.
It may seem that regular servicing is not all that important and that by missing out on a service may save you some money. However, not having your car serviced regularly increases the chance of certain components failing prematurely, these components can often be a lot more expensive to replace than just paying for a service in the first place.
It preserves the vehicles warranty
If you have recently purchased a shiny brand new car, then it most likely came with a manufactures warranty. Failing to service your car within the manufactures recommendation will void this warranty. If you are unsure of the servicing interval of your vehicle take a look in the vehicles handbook, if you are still unsure, contact a member of our team who would be more than happy to help you out.
Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to take your car back to the main dealer for a service to protect its warranty, independent garages like ourselves can carry out service work whilst keeping the warranty valid.
