Routine service maintenance is a vital part of your car’s care. It is important that your vehicle is serviced at regular intervals as recommended by your manufacturer to avoid potentially costly breakdowns.
The components of your vehicle are interconnected, if one breaks down so do the others. Ignoring maintenance can lead to performance and parts-specific or entire system failure.
Where can you find the recommended interval?
Your vehicle comes with a manual and the information is mentioned in the maintenance schedule section.
When is your vehicle commonly due for service?
Vehicles commonly have either a recommended interval of 5,000 km, 10,000 km, 15,000 km & 20,000 km depending on the brand. It is either done every 6 months or 1 year whichever comes first
What are the components checked and replaced on each interval?
There are 3 types of services that are required by your vehicle:
- General Service – Oil & Oil filters are replaced, fluids are topped up, all components are inspected, and brake pads and discs are opened cleaned, and checked.
- Semi Major Service – Oil & Oil filter is replaced plus other components recommended by the manufacturer
- Major Service – Oil & Oil filter is replaced plus other components recommended by the manufacturer such as spark plugs if the vehicle is not fitted with iridium spark plugs, AT/CVT oil, Filters, and more.
