Following the manufacturers recommended service schedule will prolong the life of your vehicle and assist in keeping the cost of maintenance to a minimum.
Contrary to popular belief you are not obliged to return to a main dealer for routine servicing. Using a reputable Vat registered independent garage will not invalidate any warranty, provided original manufacturer parts are used during the life of your warranty, but may and probably will save you money.
What kind of service do I need?
Naturally vehicle make and model will vary the detail of the service. So please make an enquiry with us directly to ensure you’ve got the right package.
Minor servicing would include a number of checks alongside engine oil drain and refill and new filter. Major servicing is a good deal more comprehensive and involves much more investigatory work.
