The experts at the Prestige Car Kent service centre are here to help, debunk myths, and ensure you get a fair deal. In this blog, we talk about the frequency of car servicing.
Many question how important it is to service a car – particularly the frequency. However, overlooking servicing can impact your car’s performance, safety and value.
Skimping on servicing to save money can prove a costly decision when it then decreases the value of your car by up to 40%. Moreover, servicing gives you early warning signs of potential issues – issues that could cost far more than a service.
Most modern cars will give you an indication on the dash when a service is due. Within the menus you will often be able to see how far away you are from the next service.
Indeed, the latest cars do without the traditional stamped service books altogether, because it is all electronically logged within the car. However, your car’s handbook is still a useful tool, as it will give the recommended mileage/time between services, and what needs to be covered.
