Every now and then that familiar little light flicks on inside the car, reminding you that you need to take her in for a service. It might be the time elapsed or the kilometres driven, or a maintenance issue your car has picked up that needs attention, either way, you’ll need to take the car in to have a professional mechanic look-over so you can drive on in confidence. However the problem we face most often is a lack of time. To combat this, here’s the laziest way to get your car serviced and save you the headache.
Why does it need a service?
First of all it’s important to mention why cars need a service every so often. There are the obvious reasons that it’s a logbook service which is required in order to keep your vehicle under the manufacturer’s warranty. These is now being scheduled into vehicle technology so a light flicks on inside the car when your service time is up. More often than not, you’ll see the sticker on the top of the driver’s side window showing you the month you’ll need a service or the amount of km’s that indicate it needs a service, whichever comes first.
Another reason for getting your car serviced is safety. If you’re not getting your car serviced regularly you’re risking not getting important issues attended to that could cause accidents or injuries on the road. This might mean you’re tyres end up bald, your brake pads are worn out and don’t work in time, or perhaps your vehicle overheats and causes an issue on the roads.
There are many dangerous scenarios that could occur. Even small issues with your vehicle that might not be noticed straight away can be found during a regular service and potentially save you from dangers later on.
Efficiency is also a great reason to get your vehicle serviced regularly. If your car isn’t running at its optimal levels then you could be wasting your money. Not only will issues pile up and get worse if not looked at, but not servicing can potentially hinder vehicle fuel efficiency, running speeds, and performance. For example one small part replacement can prevent a bigger issue later down the track that causes more extensive engine damage.
So if you’re thinking about skipping that next service because you car seems just fine, think twice about it.
How can I get it serviced?
For most people getting a car serviced involves taking it to the mechanic and leaving it for the day or overnight. You’ll have to leave for work earlier on that day to get to the service centre, arrange another form of transport, and ask for the time off to go get your car after work once it’s been serviced. An all-round hassle for the whole day.
