The Importance Of Regular Car Servicing

car servicing

At Coastwide Mobile Roadworthys & Air Conditioning we believe that regular car servicing is the difference between it running smoothly and fuel efficiency, and the risk of a breakdown that will force you to spend a lot of time and money on repairs. It may seem like a good idea to avoid servicing your car regularly to save some money, but you will achieve the opposite. Minor wear and tear could fast turn into a costly replacement or repair. During servicing, your car oil is changed because sludge may be build up and result in engine failure. Your car service will depend on the manufacturers, the mileage, and the age. If you have a new car, log book servicing is what we recommend.

Why Is Regular Car Servicing So Important?

Reduced Risk of Vehicle Break Downs

Regular car servicing doesn’t mean that your car will never break down, but it reduces the risk. Cars that haven’t been service tend to break down more often.  Problems can be easily identified before they become big forcing you to spend a lot of money to repair. The amount you can expect to use on repairs when you fail to service your car will be way more than the amount you could have used to service it. The components of the car need to be checked after a given number of miles. Most of the time, a breakdown is caused by a minor problem that could have been easily identified and fixed.

Saves You Money In The Long Run

The cost of servicing a car is a fraction of what you can expect to pay for repairs and replacement when you fail to service it. Failing to change your car oil will mean your engine will not be well lubricated and can cause engine failure, which will cost you a lot. When coming up with your expense budget, always include car service costs. If you don’t, you will have to find money to repair the car once it starts breaking down.

Reduced Inconveniences

There is nothing worse than going somewhere and breaking down on the way. This can cause a lot of inconveniences because you will have to start looking for an alternative means of transportation until your car is fixed. The whole process will cost you a lot and take time and force you to cut short what you were doing and start focusing on fixing it. A regular car service ensures that all components of your car are working and any problems are dealt with as soon as possible. Most cars have service lights that appear on the dashboard when service is coming up or due, meaning there is no excuse for forgetting.

Improved Fuel Economy

A car uses less fuel when every component is working well. When everything is working well, you can expect to improve the fuel economy of your car. The more time you take to have it serviced, the less you can expect to spend more on fuel. Regular servicing will mean savings on your part.

Reduced engine wear and prolonging the life of the engine

The engine is one of the most critical components of a car, and replacing it can cost you thousands of dollars. Regular engine breakdown will take a toll on the engine and force you to replace it. You will at one point need to replace your car engine, but the goal is making your engine last for as long as possible.

Improved Safety

A car service will highlight any outstanding safety issues or wear and tear on the suspension, steering and braking system. There are many accidents that have been caused by small problems that could have been identified during a car maintenance service.

A Regular Car Service is important for all these reasons and because it will ensure your car performs optimally over many years
