If your car is out of logbook service schedule you may not put servicing it at the top of the to-do list.
Servicing your car can seem expensive but it is one of the most important things you can do to keep your car running safely and efficiently. We often get asked “how often should I service my car when it’s out of warranty”?
How often do I need to service my car?
Most manufacturers specify 6 months or 10,000kms between services, whichever comes first.
During a service all the crucial elements of the car are checked for safety, this includes the engine, breaks, suspension, steering and so on…this regular maintenance keeps your car safe on the road and ensures everything is running as efficiently as it should be.
Failing to regularly service your car can lead to serious (and expensive!) problems and safety issues. Regular maintenance ensures that any issues are spotted early on and allows them to be fixed before they’ve caused too much damage or inconvenience.
Not only do car services keep you safe, they’re excellent for your re-sale value!
A second hand buyers main concern is that they’re going to drive away with a lemon! Regular servicing reduces the buyers concern as if well maintained, it is unlikely to have issues, meaning no extra-unexpected repair costs.
Don’t skip a service altogether!
Try to stick to your manufactures service schedule even after it is out of warranty. At a minimum have it serviced by a professional once every 12 months, or every 15,000kms maximum.
