Why Should I Get A Car Service?

One thing we always recommend to our customers is to get a service alongside your MOT. Yes, it’s a bit more money to spend but it is totally worth it in the long run.

The MOT test ensures that your car is road legal and safe. So, no jagged edges, broken bulbs, faulty seat belts – anything that could be considered dangerous to you or other road users. It may be a surprise to many that it doesn’t check your engine, clutch or gearbox, which most would say are the most essential parts of a car!

The MOT test only tends to flag a problem when it already needs to be fixed. A service, on the other hand, cares for your car and can stop future issues from arising. Like when your dentist tells you to floss each tooth if you want to keep them all. Your car has plenty of parts that require regular checking and topping up, and each of our service levels covers this for you.

Your cars service manual is the key to keeping your vehicle in good repair – written by the people who designed and built your car

An un-serviced vehicle can cost more:

  • In fuel consumption
  • Potential major repairs
  • Lubricating properties deteriorate
  • Items wearing quicker e.g. tyres
  • Lack of oil can cause serious damage
  • Clogs in pipes make oil unable to pass-through
  • Not all home mechanics have the tools or knowledge to perform the 50+ steps and system checks required

However, a serviced vehicle:

  • Maintains the value of your vehicle
  • Lowers running costs
  • Maintains fuel efficiency
  • Better performance & reliability
  • Highlights any future issues so you can repair them before needing a full replacement
  • Service book stamped for improved resale value
  • Prevents dirt and dust causing major mechanical issues
  • Prolongs engine longevity

Car manufacturers now recommend that vehicles are serviced annually, however, there are some age and mileage milestones you need to be aware of. These will be mentioned in your vehicle’s handbook and the onboard information systems.

When your service light appears on your dash, it’s best to get this booked in right away to prevent a hefty repair cost later on.

Poor maintenance average repair costs:

Timing belt replacement = approx. £500
Engine replacement if the timing belt fails = £2,000 – £4,000

Basic oil & filter change = approx. £180
Turbo replacement due to poor oil condition = £600 – £1200

Can you see how prevention is better than cure here?

The average cost of an unexpected repair on a used car is £603, according to data from an aftermarket warranty firm. Whereas the average cost of a basic service is £149.92 or £376.78 for a full service.
