When is it Time to Arrange for a Car Service?

Although car servicing should theoretically work like clockwork every year – servicing is a process that still causes some concerns for many motorists. Whether this is because of the fact that your car appears to be working fine but then you are suddenly hit with massive fees or your car is nowhere near ready for an MOT – this can be understandably concerning. Although a service may not reveal as serious potential issues as an MOT – it’s important to bear in mind that servicing can detect issues early as well as make sure that your car is running very smoothly and more efficiently.

 

There is a lot of information that circulates online about when it is time to arrange for a service. Some recommend once a year, some twice a year and some every 3 months – which can cause understandable confusion for new motorists or motorists that want to change the way that they approach the servicing of their vehicle. This article discusses when it may be time to arrange for a service and a recommended service schedule for your car as well as why you should visit a reputable garage. We have offered car servicing in Newport and the surrounding areas for many years and are fully equipped to help you create a servicing schedule to suit you.

How Often Should You Service Your Car

 

It’s definitely recommended to service your car at least once a year at an absolute minimum. This is because of the fact that a service will make your car more fuel-efficient (by an engine oil exchange and/or filler replacement) as well as safety checks such as testing lights, brakes and engine tuning. This is just a few of the tasks that are performed on your car so this is why it’s a great idea to carry this out once per year. You may want to carry out checks every 6 months – to cater for changes in the weather as certain conditions may have caused issues that are impossible for you to diagnose on your own.

 

Some motorists choose to service their car before an MOT – to increase the chances of detecting any issues before an MOT is carried out. As your MOT is the same time every year – it can, therefore, be easy to schedule your servicing around the date of your MOT. If you hit certain milestones in mileage during the year such as an 80,000 / 100,000 milestone for example then you may also want to take your vehicle in for servicing. Some vehicles also will inform you on the dashboard when you need to go and arrange for a service.
