Why should you ensure you service your car?

Although servicing your vehicle is not a legal requirement, there are a number of good reasons why you should consider getting your car serviced on a regular basis.

Car services are designed to require maintenance to keep them in good working order. Having the oil and filters changed at regular intervals prevents any dirt or dust getting into the engine’s oil and potentially causing major issues. It will also prolong the engine’s longevity and ultimately the car’s overall life span. 

We have provided a list of reasons as to you why you should ensure your car is serviced to help keep you safe whilst driving, and how keeping up with your car service can save you money. 

Safety 
Thousands of accidents occur every year as a consequence of owners avoiding vehicle maintenance. While many of us choose to blame poor driving more often than not, many of these accidents happen due to faulty or timeworn brake systems, uneven or limited tire treads, worn out wiper blades, and exhaust build ups just to name a few. Make sure that yourself, your family, your car, and all the other vehicles around you are safe by scheduling regular service checks.

Reduce Pollen
It’s no secret that vehicle emissions contribute directly to global pollution, but a vehicle that has been maintained consistently will produce lower amounts of dangerous fumes and fluids that can potentially be released into the air and water supply.

Maintaining vehicle value
The second-hand market is always competitive, with buyers expecting more for their money. A car with evidence of regular servicing – or even better a full-service history – is likely to attract more potential buyers and a higher selling price.

Longevity
Simply put, regularly servicing your car will undoubtedly improve the life span of the vehicle. With more and more people choosing to hold on to their car for longer – regular servicing is crucial if you are to enjoy many years of trouble-free driving.

It can save you money! 
Having your car serviced at the correct intervals using the correct items as recommended by the manufacturer can save you money in the long run. Keeping your engine, brakes and tyres in good working order will enable you to achieve the maximum possible fuel economy, saving you money at the pumps.
