When Should I Service My Car?

  • Barrowford MOT Centre

There are several factors affecting the frequency with which you should service your car . Many people ask, how often should a car be serviced, however the primary trio for consideration for an answer are:

  • The amount of miles you drive.
  • How well your vehicle has been maintained.
  • The surfaces and quality of road you travel on.

As a good rule of thumb, we suggest you have your car serviced every twelve months or 12000 miles, whichever comes first. Heavy car users, who drive many miles a year, should aim to have at least an interim service every six months or 6000 miles.

What is done during a car service?

At the very least, a service should check all the fluid levels, change the oil and oil filter and lubricate moving parts.

However, with the varying levels of car servicing available, we recommend you choose the best grade for your circumstances and follow the servicing schedule for your vehicle.

Regular servicing increases the safety, reliability and lifespan of your vehicle. Small faults can be discovered early making the chance of breakdown much less likely. What’s more, research shows that cars with full service history have a resale value of up to 26% more than similar unserviced specimens.

If you need your car servicing Barrowford MOT can provide all levels of servicing, at competitive rate.
