What Should I Do If My Car Has Missed a Service?
It’s recommended to have your car serviced each and every year, but it’s not the end of the world if you miss one. Simply, book it in at a professional garage as soon as you can.
Though a service is designed to give your vehicle a thorough look over, it’s also a great way to pinpoint any underlying problems. Having these problems caught early on is ideal, as the cost to fix them is usually lower and less damage will have been done. So, as well as ensuring your car is safe and secure to drive, a service can also help you to maintain the car and extend its life.
How Often Should I Have My Car Serviced?
In order to keep your vehicle in the best condition possible, we recommend having your car serviced every year; this is usually frequent enough for most cars. However, if your car is displaying signs of a problem, you may need to book a service sooner.
As well as having your car serviced every year, there are some age and mileage milestones to keep in mind. For example, each car will have a specific distance it’s able to cover between oil changes and if you’re not confident in changing the oil yourself, you may need to book a service. Though this may not line up with when the car is due to have a service, it’s important to have it done.
Of course, problems with a car can arise at any time and this may mean you need to take your car in before the next service is due; this is why it’s important to take note of warning messages on your dashboard.
