WHY SERVICE YOUR CAR?
WHY SERVICE YOUR CAR?
Although servicing your vehicle is not a legal requirement, there are a number of good reasons why you should consider getting your car serviced on a regular basis.
Regular maintenance can assist in detecting potential issues before they turn into actual ones. Maintenance guarantees that crucial vehicle components such as the braking system and suspension are thoroughly examined to ensure that these vital parts do not fail when needed the most. Routine maintenance provides reassurance that the car is in a safe and roadworthy condition.
Just because a vehicle appears to be functioning correctly does not necessarily imply that everything is working as it should. As the mileage increases, so does the wear and tear, but since the deterioration is frequently gradual and hidden from view, drivers may not perceive or sense the change. This may lull drivers into a false sense of security, assuming that everything is okay since nothing major has gone wrong with their car.
Opting not to service your vehicle every year to save a few pounds is truly a false economy. Regular maintenance can detect issues early on that may eventually become expensive and costly to rectify. Engine oil is a prime example, as it is required to lubricate and protect the moving components within your engine. Without it, your engine may seize up, which could cost thousands to repair or replace. Our service schedules all include an inspection of the engine oil, and if necessary, replacing it with fresh oil specially formulated for your car to keep your engine running smoothly.
Regular maintenance can also save drivers money at the petrol station. Replacing oil and air filters results in a smoother running engine and a more fuel-efficient car, while addressing issues like underinflated tires lowers rolling resistance and improves fuel consumption.
Moreover, not servicing your car increases the likelihood of a breakdown - which is both expensive and inconvenient if you have to rely on rental cars or public transportation while your vehicle is being repaired.
In essence, maintaining your car on a regular basis will undeniably extend its lifespan. Similar to your body, the better you care for it, the more likely it is to endure. And since an increasing number of individuals are opting to keep their vehicles for longer periods, regular maintenance is essential if you wish to enjoy many years of hassle-free driving.
