Why do I need to service my Skoda or SEAT?
Servicing has so many great benefits, we don’t think you need much convincing – but here are some important reasons to service your Skoda or SEAT with the leading independent garage in Lytham St Annes:
Safety: A faulty engine, poor breaks, worn tyres… even small faults can cause a breakdown – why risk it? We complete a full inspection to ensure all systems and parts are in working order, to prevent bigger problems from occurring and keep you and your family safe on the road.
Reliability: Whether you use your vehicle for work or leisure, it’s safe to say you need a reliable car. So make it happen! With our service, we help you pass your MOT first-time, and keep your on-road experience as smooth as possible.
Endurance: Servicing enhances the condition of your car by keeping it running at peak performance, giving it a longer lifespan and guaranteeing greater fuel efficiency.
Savings: A car is an investment, but repairs don’t have to be. Our regular car service catches smaller faults before they become costly repairs. And, vehicles that have a full-service history also have a higher resale value.
How do I know if one is due?
For any make or model, we recommend a minor service every 12 months, or 10,000 miles. This service is designed to inspect and correct the crucial safety components of your car.
For improved condition and longevity, a major service every 36 months or 30,000 miles is valuable. Not only do we review the safety of your vehicle, but we also assess all components for optimal performance.
If you’re unsure which service you need, call us to arrange a review of your car.
Are you able to service my SEAT or Skoda without it affecting the warranty?
Absolutely. In the past, drivers were stuck with limited dealership garages when their vehicles were under warranty. The great news is, recent changes in legislation mean you can choose any garage which works best for you.
So, why not pick the leading independent garage in Lytham St Annes?
What happens during a SEAT / Skoda 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 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 if 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.
