It is recommended that drivers should get their car serviced either every 12 months or 10,000 miles – whichever comes first. However, you should check the owner’s handbook for your car to double-check the manufacturer’s advice as every car is different.
Below we discuss 5 reasons why you should get your car serviced regularly.
Could potentially save you money on future repairs
When your car has a service, the technician will check specific parts of your vehicle for any signs of damage and wear and tear. If anything is spotted, you will be made aware of the issue(s) which will allow you to deal with them before a minor issue turns into a major repair.
Will make your car last longer
If your car is well maintained, 9 times out of 10, your car will be more reliable and typically speaking, it will last longer.
Help you to save money on petrol or diesel
Ensuring you get your car serviced regularly can help to improve the efficiency of your car and decrease your fuel consumption.
Ensures your safety
As mentioned previously, the technician will check specific parts of your car for damage and the parts which are checked will depend on the type of service you have chosen. These checks are not only important for the car to run as smoothly and efficiently as possible but also for your safety.
Resale value of your car
When you come to sell the car, buyers may question the history of the car before making a purchase. Typically, a car with a full service history will have a stronger sales potential than a car without.
