Why Servicing Your Car Is Important

As experts in the automotive industry in Cardiff and the surrounding area, with years of experience servicing and repairing all makes, models and body types of vehicles, we know the importance of having your car serviced regularly. Our trained team of mechanics know a thing or two about the common issues that occur with vehicles and how a regular service can often prevent larger mechanics fees.

Prevent Car Repairs - Have Your Car Serviced Regularly

Having your car serviced on a regular basis will ensure that it runs better, smoother, and more reliably in the long run. Servicing your car helps to make your vehicle more efficient, which means lower operating costs and fewer car repair bills.

You may believe that not servicing your car saves you money, but the reality is that our skilled mechanics can detect issues that you may not notice or be aware of during your service that could lead to more serious problems later down the line. A vehicle service should be performed at least once a year or every 12,000 miles to ensure that minor faults and major components are thoroughly checked to keep you safe on the road and your vehicle efficient.

Interim and full car services are the two main types of services. These serve different purposes but are both equally good for identifying any potential car repairs your vehicle may need. Your vehicle may require one of our packages, depending on how many miles you drive and when the last service was performed.

Interim Car Service

Our interim car service includes a thorough inspection of several key components to ensure that your vehicle is safe to drive. We also replace parts and top off fluids, such as engine oil and oil filters.

Finally, the interim vehicle service includes a visual inspection of the brake discs, brake pads, and tyre tread depth. When the service is complete, we’ll let you know if there are any issues or if any additional work is required. We can then carry out this work at your request, ensuring that your vehicle is safe to drive when it leaves our fully equipped autocentre. We will not begin any work without first informing you of any additional costs.

Full Car Service

On top of the interim service, a full service includes numerous additional comprehensive checks. In addition to the vehicle checks and fluid top-ups performed during the interim car service, we also replace many of the fluids with new ones to ensure that your car runs smoothly. We change air filters based on mileage and vehicle usage, as well as perform additional coolant/antifreeze strength checks and top-ups, clutch fluid, gearbox fluid, and axle oil.

If any additional work on your vehicle is required, we will communicate with you before doing so, just as we did with the interim service. This is to ensure that you do not incur any unexpected fees during the process.

Most Common Car Repairs

The most common vehicle repairs we deal with are oil/ filter changes as well as check engine light services. All of which are checked thoroughly during a standard full and interim service. More serious car repairs such as gearbox and electrical issues, both of which are also very common in all types of vehicles, can also be checked during a service. Reinforcing that they are a great opportunity to ensure that your vehicle is safe to drive and free of any impending larger vehicle repairs.

Servicing your vehicle regularly and repairing your car as soon as the issue arises no matter how big or small can extend the life of your vehicle drastically which in turn will save you money in the long run.
