Love Your Car with a Regular Service

July 2, 2013 in Auto News, BMW by admin

It’s important to treat your car to a regular service; doing so can prevent small problems from becoming more serious, and can also help you to save money over time. Servicing can include checking oil and fluid levels, as well as tyre pressure, brake pads, and electrics, and can be an excellent way to keep your car in good condition between MOT checks. Why, then, does regular servicing benefit your car, and how can you take advantage of dealership schemes to get inclusive servicing?

Taking a pro-active approach to your car’s maintenance can ultimately help you to be a more efficient and frugal driver. You can choose how often you service your car based on how much driving you do; a service about every 5,000 miles is typical if you want to get into good habits, although you can go more often. Checks every 3 to 6 months can spot problems with oil, and can also replace your air filter, top up brake fluids, and assess the tread of your tyres.

Regular services can benefit your insurance policy; you’ll be less of a breakdown risk on the road, and will also be able to save on your insurance by demonstrating that your car is in the best condition it can be. Showing insurers a record of services can demonstrate that you’re taking a responsible attitude to your driving, and can also be a good marketing tool if you decide to sell your car, putting yours in a better condition than other, similar models.

In the long term, then, regular services can help you to avoid having to pay out for major repairs. Think of services as topping up an investment in your car so that you’ll be at less of a risk of having to pay for a major breakdown, or for a more serious failure of key parts. Moreover, your car will be more efficient to drive, and can last longer on the road with regular servicing, which can ensure that your engine is in the best possible condition.

It’s also worth remembering that many dealerships, and particularly authorised dealerships of a single marque, will offer flexible servicing packages and after care warranties. For example,  BMW Servicing deals can involve inclusive servicing up to a certain amount of miles, as well as a commitment to only using genuine BMW parts; you can make advance payments towards servicing, with the knowledge that you’re going to get a consistent level of quality repairs and maintenance.

In this context, regular servicing of your car is recommended as a way to show it some care and attention, with the long term goal of saving money on major repairs; you’ll also be able to enjoy a car that’ll run smoother, and will be less likely to break down in an emergency. It’s worth, then, recognising regular car servicing as an investment that can cut down on your maintenance costs through small but significant checks.
