Endurance: A car is an investment, but repairs don’t have to be. Servicing enhances the condition of your car by keeping it running at peak performance, giving it a longer lifespan.

How do I know if one is due?
How often you use your vehicle and the class, make, and model determines how regularly you require a full service. Typically, you should service your vehicle every 12,000 miles, or annually – whichever comes sooner.
If you own an older model, you may benefit from an interim service. When you book in, the team assess your needs and usage to devise an appropriate service plan for you. And, we notify you 4 weeks in advance of your next service.

What happens during a service?
Lighting & Visibility – The front, rear, and internal lights are rigorously checked for optimal performance. All windows, mirrors, and wipers are reviewed for chips, faults, and weak areas. Registration plates are cleaned and maintained for clarity and sturdiness.
Under Bonnet – A full under bonnet inspection ensures there are no leaks or faults, and all components are in working order. Where required, we replace the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, and drive belts.
Vehicle Interior – Seat belts are tested in line with safety standards. All internal controls are checked, such as the horn, hazard light button, and other vehicle controls for responsiveness and function. Using diagnostics, we complete a full system analysis. This includes reviewing the air conditioning, making sure warning messages are addressed, and checking for intermittent and permanent faults flagged by the computer.
Steering, Drive & Suspension – Wheel alignment is analysed, and all joints, gaiters (protective sleeves on vehicle parts), and wheel bearings are extensively inspected for sturdiness and function. The front and rear shock absorbers and road springs are tested to ensure the suspension functions effectively and maintains the right level of friction.
Braking – Both the front and rear brake mechanisms are checked and measured in line with safety requirements, allowing us to accurately report on their service life.
Under Vehicle – The trays under your car are removed and the engine oil is drained. The transmission is then checked for leaks, rust, and corrosion.
Tyre Inspection – All wheels and wheel nuts are inspected for sturdiness, weak points, and corrosion. Tyres reads are inspected for significant wear, and tyre pressures are adjusted prior to refitting. We also check your spare wheel and/or inflation kit is appropriate for your vehicle.
Final Checks – We assess the brake fluid and conduct an antifreeze test – crucial for road safety, especially during winter months. Finally, we fill your engine with new oil – this is vital for engine cleanliness and performance.
