Why should I service my car?
You should service your car because doing so can prevent plenty of annoying and expensive vehicle maintenance problems.
First, if you don’t get your car serviced periodically – every six or 12 months, for example – then you run the risk of letting small problems that are cheap to fix turn into much larger, more expensive ones.
Your car may also stop working due to maintenance issues, which can be a much more disruptive and annoying situation to deal with than the minor inconvenience of getting a car service booked.
Then there’s the safety dimension to consider: do you really want to drive a banged-up car with components which might suddenly snap while you’re behind the wheel?
Car services aren’t like MOTs, though. In a service, if your MOT certificate is valid and your technician finds an issue which would result in an MOT failure, you can still drive home – though it can make much more sense to get the issue fixed there and then.
