How Often Should I get my Car Serviced?

What is the purpose of car servicing?

A car service allows mechanics to perform a thorough examination of your car, topping up fluids and performing basic maintenance tasks on your vehicle.

A service will also consist of an oil and filter change plus a through check of all vital vehicle systems. This will keep your car’s and its engine in good condition. 

Regular servicing will improve the lifespan and value of your vehicle by ensuring that various parts function correctly.

 

When should you service your vehicle?

If your vehicle is displaying dashboard warning lights, driving differently or showing other symptoms of damage, it might be a good idea to get your vehicle serviced. This will allow mechanics to thoroughly inspect your vehicle for problems. 

If your vehicle appears in good condition, it is still a great idea to get a service at least once a year. An oil change is recommended every 10,000 km and will improve the health of your engine, allowing the vehicle to last much longer. A service will also allow mechanics to identify small issues and treat them before they cause bigger problems.

It is common for drivers to get services when they get their Warrant of Fitness. This saves the hassle of taking your vehicle into the mechanics twice.
