How often should you service your car?
As a general rule of thumb it is recommended that your car receives a full service every 12,000 miles or every 12 months – whichever comes sooner.
More general check ups, such as our Essential Car Care offer and Interim Servicing option, are also available to ensure your vehicle is kept in the best possible condition. We also provide manufacturer servicing for all major makes and models of vehicle using official manufacturer service schedules to determine when your next service is due and the type of service required.
|Service Type||Service Interval|
|Essential Car Care||When oil and filter need replacement|
|Interim Service||Every 6 months or 6,000 miles (whichever comes first)|
|Full Service||Every 12 months or 12,000 miles (whichever comes first)|
|Manufacturer Service||As per manufacturer service schedule|
Regular servicing can help to keep your car running smoothly and identify potential problems early on, reducing the risk of more serious and costly problems in the future. Most importantly, regular car servicing is a fundamental step in helping to keep you and your loved ones safe on the roads.
When is my car service due?
Check your vehicle log book to see when you last received a servicing stamp. Your vehicle manufacturer will suggest an appropriate interval or number of miles travelled until your next recommended service in your hand book. Many modern cars feature on-board computers which keep track of when your car service is due. Drivers who own cars with self-diagnostic features like these are advised not to ignore these warning signs even if they occur before 12 months or 12,000 miles has been reached.
