Service Packages at Draycott Engineering, Didcot
Unlike an MOT, servicing your vehicle is not a legal requirement but regularly servicing your vehicle is critical to ensure it continues to run smoothly, safely and fuel efficiently.
Regular servicing can help to highlight potential issues before they become more problematic and costly. As the mileage increases on a vehicle so does the wear and tear. Often this is very gradual and having your car serviced each year means problems are likely to be identified earlier saving on expensive repairs in the future.
Un-serviced cars will generally consume more fuel as they are not running at their most efficient. New oil and air filters mean a smoother running engine and a more fuel efficient car. Servicing your vehicle can in the long run be the more cost effective option.
Interim & Full Service
Interim Service (Six Monthly)
It is recommended that you have an Interim Service every 6,000 miles or 6 months to keep your car safe and running efficiently between full services. An Interim Service is recommended for high mileage drivers or drivers that make short journeys in and around towns.
Full Service (Annually)
A Full Service is recommended every 12,000 miles or 12 months
A Full Service each year will reduce the risk of vehicle breakdown and as well as the items included on the Interim Service, includes replacement of engine oil, spark plugs, air and oil filter. A comprehensive report will be produced on the status of items which are subject to routine wear and the replacement of items such as tyres brake pads and shock absorbers.
