Manufacturers may recommend that you need a car service once a year to ensure that your vehicle is not only operating safely, but also adheres to manufacturers requirements to maintain warranty cover.
The benefits of having your car serviced regularly will also last well into the future, by adding value to the vehicle when the time comes to sell it providing the service book and log book are updated accordingly. Therefore, a vehicle servicing schedule should not just be viewed as an undesirable and unwarranted cost, but more as something that will add significant value to the vehicle, over time.
Of course, a car service is not simply about putting a stamp into your log book to show that it has been checked over. A fully professional service will not only fulfill the manufacturers requirements but it will also pick up on little issues here or there that can be nipped in the bud, potentially reducing a future issue. By identifying potential problems at an early stage, it is possible to avoid larger repair bills down the line.
Driving in the capital, where there are numerous speed bumps on residential roads, for instance, can cause the vehicle tracking to get knocked out of alignment. London motorists should check that this is covered in a service as any realignment their tracking will help to prevent premature wear and tear on tyres as well as long-term damage to the suspension system.
