Whenever you purchase a new vehicle, you will want to get as much mileage out of it as possible, and getting your vehicle serviced is all part of ensuring that happens. Over the lifetime of your vehicle, servicing is a small price to pay for the assurance that you will know what needs replacing and repairing before it becomes a showstopper and ends up costing thousands.
In this blog, we are going to talk about how to extend the lifespan of your vehicle and why getting your car serviced regularly is so important.
Protects Car Value
Getting your car regularly serviced helps to maintain the value of your car. The second-hand car market can be extremely competitive, so being able to produce a full, up to date service history of your car will help you to get the best price for your vehicle when you come to sell it. A full-service history gives confidence to potential buyers that the vehicle has been well maintained. With regular servicing, your car will be worth more money – this is often found to be a more effective selling prospect than pristine bodywork.
Servicing your car will identify any issues your car has and will also identify any repairs for the future. This not only allows you to budget but also prevents breakdowns that are costly and stressful.
If you want to save money, a great way of doing so is by keeping your car in good condition, rather than having to purchase a new car every few years. A well-serviced car will use less oil and operate more efficiently. If you want to get the most out of your car, regular services are the way to go.
Maintain Car’s Warranty
In order to maintain your warranty, manufacturers require an up-to-date service history from a VAT registered garage who use only OE (original equipment) parts. If you fail to have your car serviced within the time frame required by the manufacturer, your warranty may be invalidated. It can be a big money saver to keep the warranty valid, so if you are not sure at what time you need to get your car serviced, the information should be available in your car’s handbook.
