Car Servicing FAQs
1. What is a car service?
A car service is a check-up on your vehicle to ensure that everything is in good working order. As you cover more miles, gradual wear and tear will leave the mechanical components in your car in need of maintenance.
Your service should be carried out by a qualified mechanic, who can advise you on any necessary changes or replacements to keep your car running smoothly. If you have any doubts about your vehicle, don’t hesitate to get in touch
with our Leighton Buzzard car service team.
2. How often should you service your car?
General advice is to get your car serviced at least once a year but this depends on your mileage and the level of service that you choose. If you opt for an interim check-up over a more comprehensive service like our Gold package
, it could be a good idea to get your car serviced every few months.
As always, seek advice from a qualified mechanic at MK Tyres Leighton Buzzard if you’re unsure on how often you should service your vehicle. Regular servicing will prevent smaller issues from turning into potentially major and costly repair jobs.
3. How much is a car service?
The cost of a service depends on a few factors, including your chosen service package and the specific requirements of your vehicle. Some cars fly through a service with minimal issues, whereas other vehicles require complex repairs, maintenance and replacement parts. Plus, you can expect to pay a little bit more if you’re looking for a hybrid or electric car service.
You can find out more about the cost of car servicing with Protyre Leighton Buzzard by checking out all our service options
online. Our Bronze service package starts at £79 and you can expect to pay double that figure for a comprehensive Gold package.
4. How long do car tyres last?
If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you’re wondering when to change your car tyres. While it might be an easy task to put off, it’s important to remember that the minimum legal tyre tread is 1.6mm deep
. You should aim to replace your tyres when the tread falls between 2-3mm to avoid veering too close to the legal limit.
Check your tread at least a few times a year, and don’t wait until you’ve got no grip left to change them. Plus, more tread on your tyres means more grip on the roads – so it’s sensible to keep your tyres fresh, especially before driving in hazardous weather conditions.
Whatever your mileage, it’s always worth including a free tyre check
in your next trip to MK Tyres Leighton Buzzard.
5. What tyres does my car need?
The tyres you need will depend on not just the make and model of your vehicle but your driving style, too. If you’re unsure which to choose, we’ve made it easy to find the most suitable tyres for your car with our online search tool
Simply enter your vehicle registration number and your postcode, and we’ll find the best tyres near you. Alternatively, if you know what you’re looking for, you can search by size to find the perfect fit. At Leighton Buzzard, tyres are our speciality – so you’ll always be in safe hands.
6. What is wheel alignment?
Wheel alignment is the term for the positioning of your vehicle's tyres. If you’re looking for wheel-alignment services near you, our free alignment check
allows our experts to measure the placement of each wheel, ensuring even wear on your tyres and accurate handling.
If you’re wondering if wheel alignment is important, it’s worth knowing that correctly aligned wheels are vital to your safety on the road. Misaligned tyres contribute to a lack of steering control, affecting cornering stability and road positioning. This puts you, your passengers and other road users in danger.
7. How much is a vehicle diagnostic?
We offer diagnostic tests for all vehicles at £50, including VAT. Simply add our Diagnostic Plug-in & Report option to your basket if you’d like a diagnostic check. You can then choose a convenient time slot for you at MK Tyres Leighton Buzzard.
