Servicing your car

Your car needs regular servicing as per the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure it’s kept running to optimum level and is safe to drive.

Our team has over 20 years of experience servicing all makes of cars, with specialisms in German cars such as Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Skoda, and Volskwagen. With our specialist equipment we can accurately diagnose issues before they affect your driving experience.

A service is a periodic health check for your vehicle and car diagnostics serve a very similar purpose. The main difference between the two is that car servicing is a preventative maintenance service while car diagnostics tend to be more reactive. At Salek’s Motors of Southampton, we believe in a proactive approach to engine management. Modern tooling frequently identifies faults that might not display immediately on the car dashboard.

A Serviced car is a Safe Car

Regular servicing can help to identify potential problems before they become real ones. Servicing will make sure that essential checks are carried out to critical vehicle components such as your braking system and suspension to make sure that these vital parts don’t let you down when you need them most. Regular servicing provides peace of mind that the vehicle is in road-worthy condition.

Just because a car feels ok, it doesn’t automatically mean all is working as well as it should be. As the miles clock-up so too does the wear and tear, but because deterioration is often gradual and hidden out of sight, motorists may not see and feel the change. This can lull motorists into a false sense of security, mistakenly believing that all is ok because nothing major has gone wrong with their vehicle.

Reduce Running Costs

Failing to service your vehicle each year to save a few pounds really is a false economy. Regular servicing can help to identify issues early on that could later become costly and expensive to rectify. Take engine oil for example, it’s needed to lubricate and protect the moving parts inside your engine. Without it, your engine could seize up costing thousands to repair or replace. All our service schedules include checking the engine oil and, if needed, replacing this with fresh oil specifically designed for your car to keep your engine running smoothly.

Regular servicing can also save motorists money at the petrol pump. New oil and air filters make for a smoother running engine and a more fuel efficient car, while addressing issues such as under inflated tyres will reduce rolling resistance and improve fuel consumption.

Furthermore, not servicing your car increases your chances of suffering a breakdown – which is both costly and inconvenient if you subsequently become reliant on hire cars or public transport whilst your vehicle is fixed.

Maximise the Lifetime of your Engine

Simply put, regularly servicing your car will undoubtedly improve the life span of the vehicle. Just like your body, the better you treat it – the longer it is likely to last. And with more and more people choosing to hold on to their car for longer – regular servicing is crucial if you are to enjoy many years of trouble-free driving.

Maximise your Resale Value

The second hand market is always competitive, with buyers expecting more for their money. A car with evidence of regular servicing – or even better a full service history – is likely to attract more potential buyers and a higher selling price.
