Whether you are obligated to service your car due to log book servicing requirements or not, there are numerous reasons why you should have your vehicle serviced by a qualified mechanic on a periodic basis. At Nash Street Mechanical, we’ve seen first-hand the damage to engine, brake, exhaust, suspension and other systems that occurs to vehicles which aren’t serviced often enough and we can’t stress just how important it is to have your car serviced at least once every six months.
Keep Safe on the Road
When cars aren’t serviced as often as they should, there’s often no way for motorists to detect a problem that could pose a major safety issue. The brake, steering and suspension systems on your car enable you to stop, steer and stay in control of it whilst it’s in motion and that’s vital for keeping you, your passengers and other motorists safe on the road.
Cars sustain damage and parts get work down and deteriorate over time, so it’s crucially important that a qualified mechanic inspects a car both visually and with the use of the latest diagnostic tools to identify any parts and components that need to be repaired, adjusted or replaced. Regular servicing also provides peace of mind, which is something that we all want to enjoy while driving.
Increase Your Car’s Lifespan
Regular servicing promotes longevity in vehicles, so by having your car serviced bi-annually at a minimum, you’re taking the required measures to protect the investment you have made in your car. Like your body, the better you take care of it, the longer and better it will serve you, so if you’re to enjoy many more years of faithful service and trouble-free driving, regular servicing is a must.
Save Money in the Long-Term
Vehicle servicing is an expense, but it’s one that saves you money in the long-term. Not only does servicing enable the detection of minor problems before they become major problems, but it also ensures your car’s systems, from the brakes, steering and suspension through to the cooling and exhaust system, are getting the attention they require.
Brake and coolant fluids need to be kept at the right levels, suspension systems and shock absorbers need to be adjusted, and tyres need to be at the right pressure to prevent damage to the wheel, not to mention enable you to control your car. Additionally, servicing helps to maintain your car’s value, which is an important consideration, as you will need to sell it or trade it in when the time comes to purchase a newer model.
