How Often Should You Service Your Vehicle?

    It is generally recommended that your car receives a full service every 12,000 miles or every 12 months – whichever comes sooner.


    Interim servicing options are also available to ensure your vehicle is kept in the best possible condition.


    We also provide manufacturer servicing for all major makes and models of vehicle using official manufacturer service schedules to determine when your next service is due and the type of service required.


    When Is My Car Service Due ?

    Check your vehicle log book to see when you last received a servicing stamp.


    Your vehicle manufacturer will suggest an appropriate interval or number of miles traveled until your next recommended service in your hand book.


    Many modern cars feature on-board computers which keep track of when your car service is due.


    Drivers who own cars with self-diagnostic features like these are advised not to ignore these warning signs even if they occur before 12 months or 12,000 miles has been reached.


    Look For Dashboard Messages

    Most cars now have dashboard warning messages about a wide range of topics, including issues with the braking system, engine, oil and coolant levels, and tyre pressure.


    Your car owner’s manual will explain what each lit-up warning message means and what you need to do.
