Regularly servicing your car is essential to ensure that it remains in good condition and performs at its best. It is recommended to take your car for a service at least once every 6 months or 5,000 miles whichever comes first. This helps to identify any potential issues and prevent them from escalating into more expensive repairs in the future.

Regular servicing also helps to keep your car running smoothly and efficiently, which can help save you money on fuel costs over the long-term. By going for regular services, you can also rest assured that your car will run well for years to come.

How often should you change oil in car?

Regular oil changes are essential to the performance and longevity of your car. Keeping up with regular oil changes can help ensure that your engine is running smoothly and efficiently.

This will help keep your engine running properly and prevent any damage caused by old, dirty oil.

When should I rotate or replace my tires?

Rotating or replacing your tires is an important part of maintaining your vehicle’s performance and safety. The frequency at which you should rotate or replace your tires depends on a number of factors, including the type of vehicle you drive, the type of tires you have, and how often you drive. Generally speaking, it’s recommended that you rotate and/or replace your tires every 6 months to ensure optimal performance and safety. Additionally, it’s important to have your tires serviced by a certified professional to ensure they are properly inflated and aligned.

When should I get my brakes checked?

Your brakes are an essential part of your car, and it is important to make sure they are in good condition.

During a brake check service, a qualified technician will inspect the condition of the brake components and make any necessary repairs or replacements. This will help to ensure that your brakes are functioning optimally and keep you safe on the road.
