Servicing FAQs

We all know how important it is to go to the doctors for a check-up to make sure everything is running smoothly. Well, the same goes for your car! When a car is designed, manufacturers set out a service schedule for the car, which they believe will keep it running reliably and safely. The manufacturer’s service handbook will set what is best for your car but most modern cars will only need a service once a year.

The European Commission rules on car block exemption came into full effect in October 2003. This new ruling allows independent garages the same access to technical information on your car from the manufacturer, and more importantly, it means that you do not need to go back to a main dealer to retain the warranty cover.

We offer a choice of two types of services – Interim and Full Standard, and we will explain which one your car needs according to the mileage you have done.

But typically an Interim Service includes oil and filter change, checking all the key fluids in the engine (washer fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze and power steering fluid) and a 28 point check of key components to ensure your car is in the best condition possible. We will also check your brakes, tyres and recommend any additional work your car may need.

A typical Full Standard Service is a 50 point check and will include everything covered in an interim service but will also include a change of spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, pollen filter, and other service/wear items that are recommended by the manufacturer’s schedule. This does not include any additional repair or maintenance work.

When the service work is complete, we will provide you with a checklist report detailing what has been carried out on an Interim Service or a Full Standard Service. If you are unsure of any item on the checklist, please speak with our friendly, expert technicians who will be able to explain it further.

Remember, an MOT is not a service and passing the MOT test will not ensure that your engine is running as efficiently as it should. Regular servicing will help minimise costly and unexpected repairs.
