Servicing of your vehicle is not a legal requirement but there are a number of reasons why you should regularly service your car.
Servicing helps identify potential problems and issues with your vehicle and will make sure that essential checks are made to important vehicle components such as braking systems, suspension and the engine, making sure that these parts won’t let you down when you need them most.
Regular servicing provides peace of mind that the vehicle is in road-worthy condition.
