ETB Autocentres checking a customers car

At ETB Autocentres, we always advise that you bring your car in for a service once every 12 months or so, as a matter of course.

But have you ever wondered why?

It’s not something we say for the sake of it and this blog will explain why ETB’s Menu Service is so important and something you shouldn’t swerve.

Why bring your car in for a service?
In simple terms, because regular servicing increases the safety, reliability and lifespan of your vehicle. Small faults can be discovered early, thus making the chance of breakdown much less likely. What’s more, research shows that cars with full service history have a resale value of up to 26% more than similar unserviced cars.
And at ETB, every single part we fit and oil we replace is approved original equipment, unlike some competitors who can sometimes compromise on quality.

When should I get my car serviced?
Many people ask, how often should a car be serviced, but the primary trio for consideration for an answer are:

  • The amount of miles you drive.
  • How well your vehicle has been maintained.
  • The surfaces and quality of road you travel on.

As a good rule of thumb, we suggest you have your car serviced every 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. Heavy car users, who drive many miles a year, should aim to have at least an interim service every six months or 6,000 miles.

What is done during a car service?
There are two different types of service we provide:
Interim Service: This is our entry level servicing package and is usually recommended every 6,000 miles or else every six months. Oil change, oil filter change, brake fluid level checks and top-ups and an inspection of main components of the car are included.

Full Service: A full service includes everything that is in a basic service plus a much more in-depth check and some more additional work. Our full service includes additional filter replacements such as an air filter, in-depth brake checks and overall checks on the engine and more. More than 50 components are thoroughly checked.

When should I get my car serviced?
Most modern cars have an in-built computer that ensures a warning light- often in the image of a spanner- flashes up on the dashboard when your car has reached its service interval.

If your car doesn’t have this facility, you can contact us. We’ll advise you about the specific servicing requirements for your vehicle and provide a competitive quote. You can also check the servicing schedule in your car’s manual pack, which will give you detailed information from the manufacturer, regarding the servicing of your vehicle.
