Servicing Your Car Will Save You Money | Phil Gilbert Kia

Buying a car is big investment and it doesn’t stop once you get it home. To get the most out of your car you need to maintain it properly with regular servicing to replace the consumables such as air and oil filters, oil and coolant. Not only does proper maintenance ensure your car lasts longer and stays reliable, but it can prevent costly repairs later on.

How Paying a Little Now Can Save Lots Later

Whether you service your own car to save money, or take it to your local technician, doing it at scheduled intervals gives you a chance to inspect your vehicle for signs of wear or damage, and do what’s necessary to stop it becoming worse.

A small outlay now can save you thousands of dollars on major repairs because you didn’t catch the fault in time.

Why Service Regularly?

Regular servicing increases fuel efficiency and the life of your engine.

The vital fluids in your engine need to be replaced to ensure smooth, care-free driving, and other components should be checked for compliance and to make sure everything is working properly.

As your gets older and does more kilometres things start to wear out. When you get your car serviced your technician will do a thorough check of your entire car and let you know of any safety issues, leaks, or repairs you need.

DIY or Go Professional?

Even though today’s car technology has made maintenance much simpler, in many ways it’s also complicated it with sophisticated systems only a technician can understand.

Doing your own service might save some money initially but do you really know what you’re doing under there?

New cars must be professionally serviced under warranty, and if there is a problem with your engine, an expert will find it whereas you might not.

Your Trusted Technician

Letting a professional take care of things makes life a lot easier, and it’s even better if that professional knows you well and doesn’t need a full history or a running commentary.

The dealer you bought your car from is often the best place to take your vehicle for its scheduled service because they know the car and its history. You don’t have to explain anything to them, or tell them anything unless you’ve noticed something out of the ordinary they should know about.

They’ll take care of everything for you and give you a full report on completion.

When Life Gets in the Way

When life gets busy it’s tempting to put off your car service because you don’t have time or it’s too inconvenient right now.

A trusted service technician will let you know when your car is due for a service and make it as easy as possible to get your car in and get it done, which is one less thing you have to worry about.
