General Servicing and Maintenance is an extremely important factor in maintaining your vehicle, and you need to remember, the service intervals set by the manufacturers have been set for a reason. It may be tempting to squeeze a few extra kilometres in between each service, but this could potentially cost you a lot more in the long run.

Some of the issues that can occur due to a lack of maintenance and servicing are:

  • -Engine oil begins to solidify and cause harmful carbon build up inside of the engines oil galleries potentially causing premature engine wear and in some severe cases, total engine failure.
  • -A lot of people will not check the crucial fluids such as engine oil and coolant in between services therefore the potential for leaks to occur and go unnoticed is increased which can easily turn into a rather costly repair.
  • -Suspension over time will wear, if not monitored and maintained can cause the vehicles stability to be affected and make your vehicle unsafe to drive.
  • -Tyres in most instances will wear differently on the front and rear of the vehicle due to different turning angles and driving. Without inspection and proper rotation, your tyres can fail prematurely and you will not get the full life out of you tyres.

All of these issues may seem like small things, but when all combined it can quickly add up into an expensive repair that potentially could have been avoided if the correct service procedures had of been followed.
