Most people depend on their vehicles for everyday life to do everything from commuting to work to dropping and picking the kids up from school, yet little thought is put into maintaining and protecting your vehicle with regular servicing.
So, what’s the difference between a minor and major service and how often should you get them? As a general rule, minor services are required every 10,000 kilometres and every major service every 30,000 to 40,000 kilometres intervals. The surefire way to know is checking your car handbook and being diligent to ensure the vehicle gets the service it needs when it needs it.
Minor services generally include an oil change, oil filter replacement, lubrication checks, fluid inspection, emissions, wheel alignment services, spark plug checks and more.
Major services are carried out less often than a minor service and includes a check of engine management, wheel alignment, brake fluid, state of brakes, engine bolt tightness.
Regular vehicle servicing may seem like a hassle, particularly when your vehicle seems to be in good working order, but can save you big bucks in the long run.
