Which car service do we require?


It can sure be confusing to some car owners which car servicing option they require, after all, when you are presented with some garage websites, they sometimes automatically assume that you know whether you require a “major service”, “interim service” or perhaps a “full service”?

Then prior to your booking, you may get various other options, such as selecting from “mineral oil”, “fully synthetic” or “semi-synthetic oil”– so the sheer volume of servicing options, well, can be sometimes overwhelming to some.

So, as you can see, for some car owners, the huge range of servicing options, well can be rather confusing, and what can compound this even more is the fact that the list of servicing options is becoming even longer at some garages, as cars change how they are powered, with for example, various options for hybrid vehicles, and sometimes also “upgrade options” where extra items are added to the list for an additional fee.

Therefore what you might want instead is to instead opt for a friendly and family run business like ours, which will spend the time with you recommending which servicing option you may need.

What exactly is “interim servicing”?

A lot of car owners will instantly know what a “engine oil, and oil filter change is”, and know why this is so important to carry this out as per the manufacturer’s recommendations, that’s to say as per how often the car should get serviced.

However, when some car owners are flicking through the owner’s manual, well, they may see that the manufacturer also recommends “interim servicing”, say for example, after say so many miles have been covered.

But what does interim servicing mean?

Well, some car owners can carry out a lot of miles every year, so as you can imagine this car cause more wear on the car’s components.

This means, manufacturers often state how often the car should get serviced, in terms of a major service, and interim service, therefore the car should be serviced as per what the manufacturer stipulates.

What’s included in the “full car servicing” that you offer at your garage?

As you would expect, with different vehicles, the manufacturer will specify which car parts should be serviced or replaced after so many miles or will stipulate a time-frame when they should be replaced, and this should be followed.

Therefore, a small petrol car may have a totally different service interval, and also list of items that need servicing when compared to say a large V6 performance saloon.

You can always talk to our friendly team, who can advise you as to costs, when you would like your car serviced here in Cardiff, South Wales.

Why is it so important to get items like the cars air filters, engine oil and engine coolant changed as per the car manufacturers guidance?

Under the bonnet of car are various components that work very hard every time you turn the ignition on, that’s regardless of whether the cars diesel, hybrid-electric or just petrol powered.

From the pistons to the cambelts, through to the engine oil, that’s job is to lubricate the engine, this is why as a car owner you should get your car serviced as per the manufacturer’s guidance as to “service intervals”. Also, certain car parts will be stipulated as to when then should be changed, for example, the car manufacturer will stipulate when the timing belt should be changed, so these items should be replaced as per the manufacturer’s guidance.

Therefore, because your car, and all the various car parts work so hard, it is important to keep on top of your servicing and also get car parts replaced as per the manufacturer’s recommendations or of course, when needed.
