Car Servicing Tips & Advice from Foster & Heanes
Your car is one of your most valuable possessions, which is why it makes sense to take care of it.
Maintaining your car properly is essential for road safety, therefore finding a garage you can trust is a priority.
Many people who buy new cars tend to go to the dealership where they purchased their vehicle for servicing and maintenance. Often, owners of new cars think they need to use the main dealer to adhere to the manufacturer’s warranty, but this isn’t the case.
Why choose local when it comes to maintaining your car?
Because local garages serve the local community – that’s how they build their reputation. Customers come to trust them, and loyalty is established. In turn, this leads to word of mouth recommendations.
It’s easy to ask your local friends and neighbours who they go to time and time again – and a personal recommendation is so much more reassuring than a clever marketing campaign.
Regular servicing will help to keep the car running smoothly and will reduce the likelihood of something more serious going wrong which may result in large repair bills.
Your owner’s manual will show you how frequently the manufacturer recommends a service for the make and model of your car in order to maintain optimal performance, but of course this doesn’t take into account all factors that can reduce the life of a vehicle.
