Most Frequently Asked questions about Car Servicing:

 
  1. When does my car need a service?

Although the exact servicing recommendations will vary depending on your vehicle's make and model, the general rule of thumb is that you should book your car in for a full service every year, or every 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.

  1. What do I need to take to my car servicing appointment?

Taking your car to be serviced is not like taking your car for its MOT. You can’t fail a service; in fact, your garage should identify any potential failure points, which can be corrected before an MOT. This is the reason drivers often book the two appointments together.

  1. When does my new car need its first service?

A new vehicle is exciting, with its lovely, glossy exterior, pristine windscreen, an engine so clean you could cook your dinner on it, and - of course - that intoxicating new car smell. While a new car may seem perfect in every way, it will still require servicing to keep it running at its best and rectify small issues of wear and tear before they become major problems.
