An important and essential aspect of owning a vehicle is booking regular services and maintenance checks to ensure your vehicle is not only functioning efficiently, but also reducing the chance of breakdowns and serious damage.
You can choose to have a service every six months, or annually, but, as a vehicle owner, it’s important to know what is included in a car service.
What is a Service?
A car service consists of service checks from qualified professionals to check the condition of your car. A service assesses everything from a vehicles brakes, engine quality, fluids, wear and tear and much more.
Not every service is the same; it depends on the make a model of your vehicle. If a vehicle fails its service, it is unable to drive on the roads due to safety concerns. Depending on what the issues are, these can be fixed by the professionals to get you back on the road in no time.
What Happens During a Full Car Service?
There are many different factors within a car service:
Oil and filter change – this is one of the most important parts of a car service, and it’s included in all services. This is what helps your car run reliably and also helps to increase your vehicles fuel efficiency.
An Interim service – includes the oil and filter change and a visual inspection, ensuring your car is in the best possible condition. During this type of service, your key fluids in the engine; which include the washer fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze and steering fluid, will be topped up and your cars’ brakes will be checked to ensure they are working to the best of their ability.
A full service – consists of all the elements stated above; oil and filter change, top up of key fluids, brake check and a visual inspection. However, in a full service, several extra additional checks on the car’s components are carried out, and if any maintenance work is needed, it can be conducted during this service at additional costs.
