Car servicing

vidange1526395824.jpg

Regular servicing of your car can help extend the lifespan of your vehicle and keep it running safely and efficiently. This routine maintenance significantly reduces your risk of breakdowns and can help identify any minor issues before they become more significant. A relatively small expenditure now can avoid a major unexpected expense later. A full service history can also add significantly to your car’s value.

 

Routine maintenance to keep your car in top condition

Normally a Full Service should be carried out once a year or every 12,000 miles. You may also wish to compliment this with an Interim Service every 6,000 miles or every 6 months (whichever occurs first) which checks the most vital and safety critical elements of your car. Some manufacturers also recommend an even more thorough Master Service to be scheduled every 24 months. Point-S can help you with all these requirements and offer you impartial advice as to the most relevant service for you!

If your car is suddenly experiencing unusual noises or something just doesn’t feel right, this can also be a good time to book your car in for a service. Early identification of issues can help avoid much more damaging problems developing. If you are about to embark on a long journey, a service can also be a fantastic aid to avoiding unwanted dramas and providing reassurance that your car is ready for the trip.
