What is the right time to do a car service?
There are a few factors resulting in the frequency with which you should get your car serviced. People usually ask, how often should a car be serviced? Well, our primary trio for consideration here at The Motor Company PPS ltd are:
• The volume of miles you drive.
• How well is your vehicle maintained?
• The surfaces and condition of road you drive on.
As a good practice of thumb, we suggest you have your car serviced once a year or every 12000 miles, depends on whichever comes first. Heavy car drivers, who run many miles a year, should try to have at least an interim car service every six months or about 6000 miles.
What is done during a car service?
At the very least, the garage should check all fluid levels, change the oil and oil filter and lubricate the moving components.
However, with the different levels of car servicing available on the market, we suggest you choose the best type as per your circumstances and follow the servicing schedule for your vehicle.
