We might all be ready for spring and (hopefully!) sunshine, but, as we all know, the weather can be unpredictable, and you never know what might be around the corner – particularly with the recent storms that have been causing havoc!
So, it is important to make sure you keep your car in good working order so it is ready for whatever the weather might throw at you, and to ensure you remain safe on the road.
Regular servicing helps to keep your car running smoothly and it identifies any potential issues early on to reduce the risk of turning these problems into something more serious or costly.
Here at James Haugh, we have pulled together a quick guide so you can find out more about car servicing.
Why should you service your car?
A service will carry out vital checks to your vehicle’s parts to make sure they don’t let you down when you need them most. It may feel like your car is running perfectly, but as you clock up those miles, the parts on your car will slowly deteriorate through wear and tear – this is often gradual, so you may not immediately notice any changes. This can lull you into a false sense of security, as you’re unaware that there may be something wrong with your vehicle.
If you’re not regularly servicing your Vauxhall, issues that could have been rectified at an early stage could potentially cost thousands to repair or replace in the future. For example, engine oil is needed to lubricate and protect the moving parts inside your engine – without the oil, it could seize up and cost you a considerable amount of money to put right.
Simply put; regularly servicing your vehicle will save you money in the long run.
Extending the life of your vehicle
The better you treat your car, the longer it will last. Routine checks help to increase your car’s performance and aid in preventing breakdowns or malfunctions. Ensuring your car is in top condition could add years onto the life span of your vehicle, so you will be able to enjoy plenty more years of trouble-free driving.
Peace of Mind
Finally, when you regularly service your car, it can help to ease your mind knowing that your vehicle is in a completely road-worthy condition. There’ll be no lurking problems waiting to happen, so you can have total peace of mind knowing your car won’t fail you.
Which service is right for me?
At James Haugh, we have trained technicians available that simply love what they do – and they want to ensure your Vauxhall is in the highest quality condition possible.
When you receive a service or repair work from us here at James Haugh, our technicians will treat every Vauxhall with TLC, using only genuine parts.
If you’re not sure which type of service your Vauxhall needs, then we can help. We have a variety of services on offer so you can be confident you are getting the right one for your car.
Firstly, you could take advantage of the seasonal Check-Up offer, which includes 29 checks on your vehicle, from lights to tyres, along with six fluid top-ups, such as screenwash and engine coolant.
Alternatively, there are three services available: interim, main and major, which are recommended based on the length of time since your last service. All three of these will assess if any safety, product or new software updates are due, as well as change the engine oil and filter with genuine Vauxhall parts – plus a whole load more.
