Why Service?

We highly recommend you regularly service your car. Servicing keeps your car running at its best and reduces the risk of it breaking down when you most need it. During a service, we will inspect your car and replace parts that are aged or worn, to keep it running smoothly and reliably. This will save you money in the long run as you face fewer big bills caused by major components, such as the engine or suspension, breaking due to a lack of maintenance.

The type of service you choose is really important because, depending on the service your car last had, it may need a more thorough inspection than usual, or vital parts may need replacing.


What Service do I need??

If your last annual service was a Full Service, we highly recommend your car has a Major Service. This is because during a Major Service we change your brake fluid which is vital for stopping your car safely. Over time, your brake fluid can become contaminated making your brakes less effective, so it takes longer to stop your car. This could have serious consequences in an emergency.

Because of this, we advise you have a Major Service or change your brake fluid, every two years or 24,000 miles, whichever is soonest. During the Major Service we will also change your car's cabin filter, which we also recommend is changed every two years.

If your last annual service was a Major Service then we'd recommend your next is a Full Service, which is a thorough 76 point inspection of your car. Our Full Service is our next most comprehensive inspection after the Major Service and exceeds most car manufacturers' specifications.

However if you are a high mileage driver, for example you regularly drive more than 2,000 miles a month, your car may need more frequent checking due to the extra wear and tear being placed on it. If this is the case, you should consider having an Interim Service every six months in addition to a Full or Major Service. During this service, our highly trained technicians will check the parts of your car that need a more frequent inspection.
