Frequently asked questions
+

What is a 'Full Service' on a car?

It involves thoroughly checking the fluids and components in the vehicle, to determine whether they need replacing, updating, or replenishing. Getting your car serviced will also help prevent larger jobs cropping up later on, thus saving you a lot of hassle and money.

+

When is my car due for a service?

The recommended service schedule for your vehicle will be outlined in your owner’s manual. However, the general rule would be that a full service be undertaken every 12,000 miles.

+

How often should you service your car?

Your car should receive a full service annually, and if you undertake a high mileage it should receive an interim service in between at the 6 month mark.

+

What is included in a Full Service?

A Full Service includes renewal or top-up of all major fluids including:

·      Oil

·      Coolant

·      Brake fluid

·      Automatic Transmission Fluid

A clean will be provided to:

·      Filters

·      Spark plugs

Other components that are also comprehensively checked are:

·      Suspension

·      Steering

·      Door locks

+

How long does a car service take?

A car’s full service can take around three hours to complete, if there are no significant issues encountered as they will of course lengthen the job time. You will ordinarily get your car back the same day but perhaps set a day aside for the service. 

+

What's the difference between a Full and an Interim Service?

An interim service focuses on items that require the most regular renewal and maintenance. A full covers all of these, plus those that require a less-frequent review.

+

What's the difference between a Full and a Major Service?

Many garages won't differentiate between a Full and a Major Service. Where they do, the Major is even more comprehensive and may include items such as a full drain and renewal of brake fluid and coolant.

Full Service

A full car service is an analysis of all the essential systems in your car, carried out by a trained mechanic. Servicing your car on a regular basis is vital in ensuring that your car is reliable and as fuel efficient as possible, in order to help protect its resale value and keep you safe on the road.

Many of the checks that are included in a full service, are things that a non-mechanic would struggle to carry out through not having the necessary equipment or training etc. Therefore, the service is essential in being sure your car is up to speed and functioning correctly.



In a full service you will receive:

·      Oil and Oil Filter Replacement

·      Brake Fluid Check and Change

·      Anti-freeze Coolant

·      Windscreen Wash

·      Power Steering Fluid

·      Lights

·      Windscreen Wipers

·      Battery Condition

·      Charging System

·      Exhaust System

·      Tyre Tread and Pressure

·      Full Brake Check

·      Steering Check

·      Shock Absorbers Check

·      Suspension Check

·      Auxiliary Drive Belt Check

·      Wheel Alignment Check

·      Wheel Bearing Check

·      Wheel Balance

·      Brake Fluid Condition

·      Fuel Filter (Diesel)

·      Spark Plugs (Petrol)

·      Air Filter or Cabin Filter change



Full Service Near Me

Garages will offer different service packages, but most of the parts and systems listed above should be checked during a full car service as most cars follow the same or similar maintenance schedules.

Most our garages use genuine manufacturer parts and provide the same offering provided as part of the manufacturers recommended maintenance schedule, just ask the garage if you're unsure.


Furthermore, if you require any other repairs which are uncovered during the full service, you will have to pay an extra charge as a result. It is also worth asking what oil has been used. Fully synthetic oil is usually the best but other blends of oils can also be used too. That way, if you ever need to change your oil at home, you can be fully equipped with the best for your car.
