Getting Your Vehicle Serviced at Phil Gilbert Kia

It’s common knowledge that not only is it extremely unsafe to drive a vehicle that’s not mechanically sound but it can also become a financial burden to repair. That’s why it’s crucial that you stay on top of your regular car maintenance services as indicated in your logbook. While most vehicles need servicing every 10,000 – 15,000 kilometres, it also depends on how often you drive and the terrain that you’re driving on. While it’s essential that you regularly service your car, it’s just as important as where you get it serviced.


Turn to the certified technicians at Phil Gilbert Kia

Whether you have a brand new Kia in the latest model or a used Kia, getting your vehicle serviced at Phil Gilbert Kia will give you the peace of mind you need when it comes to your prized possession.

Here are four benefits of why you should get your car serviced at a dealership like Phil Gilbert Kia instead of an independent servicing chain: 

  • Your warranty will be covered: If you own a new Kia, your car will still be under warranty. This is the main reason why you should get your vehicle serviced at a dealership – we will perform repairs for free if your car is still under warranty. While non-dealers can service your vehicle, they can’t fulfil warranty work. For example, if you were to get a non-genuine part replaced and it causes damage to your Kia, your warranty will be void.
  • Access to genuine parts: There really is no substitute for OE (Original Equipment.) If you choose a generic part, you may run the risk of it being inferior to OE parts. We have access to genuine parts that are made specifically for your Kia.
  • Dedicated testing equipment: Phil Gilbert Kia has access to a range of electronic test equipment, specific to your model. These diagnostic tools can integrate with the car’s computer, find faults and complete computer software upgrades to overcome issues. You won’t get a more thorough test than through this kind of technology.
  • Experts in the make and model: As we deal with your specific make and model day in and day out, we have comprehensive knowledge about your brand of car. You can trust our certified and manufacturer-trained technicians to know their stuff inside and out.
