How often does my car need a service?
Different manufacturers recommend different service intervals for different models of vehicle depending on the average annual mileage of that vehicle. We would suggest that most vehicles fall into one of three categories based on the (M.P.A.) miles per annum.
Low miles per annum
If you only do a small mileage say less than 6000 miles per annum your vehicle only really requires one routine service per year. In this instance we would recommend that the best time to have this service done is 6 months after your annual M.0.T.inspection, this way all the main safety checks are being done twice per year.
Average miles per annum
10000 miles per annum is around average, at this miles per annum you can still get away with only one routine service per year. Again have the service half way between M.O.T.s. However, we would advise you to have the oil and filter replaced and the brake wear checked along with the M.O.T.
High miles per annum
High mileage is obviously anything over 10000 miles per annum, over 12000 miles per annum your car really needs a routine service every 6 months.
