What is a 'Full Service' on a car?

Regular servicing ensures your car's reliability, performance and fuel efficiency, and will help protect the car's resale value.

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 Service is even more comprehensive and may include items such as a full drain and renewal of brake fluid and of the cooling system's coolant.

A Full Service with our garages will typically cost between £150 and £200. If you have a car with 6 cylinders, it may be a little higher.
