Car Servicing Guide

service pit stop

Servicing keeps your vehicle in prime condition, helping protect against wear and tear. Even a basic interim service can keep your car running smoothly and protect it from repairs. Usually, people will also take on more rigorous servicing to replace commonly worn down elements such as the air filters or spark plugs.

What is a Service Schedule?

A service schedule is a recommended service plan, with checks and replacements straight from the manufacturers. These will usually last the lifetime of the vehicle up to 150,000 miles and should happen every 5000 miles or 6 months. Following this service guideline will keep your vehicle in top condition and help to advise on any problems that could arise.
