Most cars today have a 3-year warranty on standard parts, and a 7-year corrosion warranty. This can vary considerably, and some car manufacturers choose to offer an extended warranty when you buy a new car.
If your car is still under warranty, it is important that a garage adheres to the manufacturer’s guidelines as per the car’s service manual in order to maintain its warranty. Service specifics and time intervals may vary from model to model. By using a quality garage, you ensure that everything is examined properly with the right testing equipment, that you get quality spare parts and that approved fluids are used for topping up. We have ongoing quality checks on our garages, and they must all be able to live up to ongoing evaluation and rating by car owners, and VOSA approved for MOT testing.
After the warranty expires, it’s still important to comply with service intervals. Not only does it prevent unexpected downtime and expensive repairs, but it also ensures that your car keeps its value better.
The warranty remains valid, even if you do not choose an authorised dealer, as long as you can prove that the service intervals and requirements have been met by keeping hold of an up to date service log book.
There are different types of services, depending how far the car has travelled, and how old it is. The various inspections depend on the service manual. Here is a list of the most common service elements:
Depending on the age of the vehicle, your car is serviced at certain mileage intervals. If you do not drive that many miles, the intervals will be more time dependent rather than mileage dependent. Typically there will be the need for a service at least once a year, if you are not driving enough to hit the mileage intervals.
