Save Money on Car Repairs with Regular Servicing
Running a car is expensive; tax, fuel and insurance, coupled with potential breakdowns and repairs can leave you spending a lot more money on your car than you originally anticipated. There are, however, measures that you can take to avoid unnecessary expenditure, and one of these methods is taking your car in for regular servicing. This article will detail the benefits of regular servicing, showing you how you can save money on running your car.
While servicing your car can be costly, taking your vehicle in for regular inspections and maintenance will help you avoid any disasters such as breakdowns or accidents. It is much more beneficial to have your car inspected and be informed of any problems or potential issues than to discover problems while you’re driving.
There are two types of car services; interim and full car service. It is up to you when you opt for these services, but each one should be performed at least once a year. However, the frequency of these services can also depend on factors such as the age of your car, and your car’s service history – if you have an older car, services may need to be more regular, as they would be if your vehicle has a history of faults. MOTs are not a substitute for a full car check-up, and they should not be treated as such. A rule that you might want to follow is to service your car “every 12 months or every 12,000 miles – whichever comes first”. It is, however, a legal requirement that your car has an MOT every year after it is three years old.
If it becomes apparent during the service that your car has a fault or numerous faults, your mechanic can help you organise repairs by those that are urgent and those that can be postponed for a time. Car services will usually feature small but vital jobs such as the oiling of vital parts, a change of the oil itself, a top up of all fluids and an inspection of your car’s filters.
