Book Your Full Car Service Today
A full service is an examination and analysis of all the important systems in your vehicle to make sure they’re running safely and reliably.
During a service there is a top-up of all the car’s fluids, a clean of components and a comprehensive check carried out of the parts that endure the most wear and tear.
Full services also involve topping up fluids, cleaning major components and checking over the parts that are the most subject to wear and tear. Many garages offer discounted tyres & MOT’s if you book in for a full service – it’s always worth asking.
