It is recommended that you service your car regularly to keep it efficient and economical.

Most modern vehicles have got set service intervals set in the systems which would normally go by millage but if you don’t travel at lot of miles then a yearly service is recommended.

  • How often should I service my car?

    All makes and models have different service intervals they are put in place of modern vehicles by the manufactures for mileage intervals and a service light will usually indicate when your vehicle requires attention. If you are unsure on this, please contact one of our workshops for further assistance.

  • What lubricant levels should I check and how often?

    Common levels for people to check at home are Oil, Windscreen wash and water. Your oil levels should be checked at least once a month and before long journeys, same is to be said for windscreen wash and water/coolant levels should be checked twice a year once before summer and before winter. If you need more help, please contact one of our workshops.

  • When should I check my tyre pressures?

    It is recommended that you should check your tyre pressures once every couple of weeks because tyres can quickly become deflated if they are not checked regularly, and this can result in excessive or uneven wearing on the tyre tread, this can also affect vehicle road handling and fuel consumption. Our workshop staff are always on hand to help of you are unsure on what and how to do this.
