Importance of Regular Car Servicing

Ten reasons why you should have your vehicle serviced every six months.

  1. A well tuned engine uses less fuel and produces less emmisions.
  2. Engine oil loses its effectiveness over time. It needs to be replaced regularly to extend engine life.
  3. Leaking oil or other fluids can cause a costly major breakdown or accident.
  4. Brakes must be checked and adjusted regularly to ensure roadworthiness and safety.
  5. All moving parts must be lubricated to avoid unecessary wear and tear.
  6. Loose belts can cause engine failure and damage.
  7. Lights must be frequently checked and adjusted for legal and safe operation.
  8. Tyres should be checked and inflated to correct pressure to extend their life.
  9. Steering and suspension components should be checked to extend their life.
  10. Regular servicing, documented in your Log Book enhances the resale value of your vehicle.
