Does your Car Need a Service?

Posted on March 18, 2018 at 11:44 am

Perhaps surprisingly, it is not a legal requirement to get your car serviced (though it is a legal requirement to have an MOT). This means that it is up to you whether it is something you do. There are pros and cons either way. Here are some things to think about:

  • You can sell cars for more money with a full service history
  • It might make you aware of future problems so you can start planning for them
  • It can be expensive, so search around for a good deal
  • It’s reassuring to know that your car is in good condition

If you do get your car serviced, remember when the last service was and keep going regularly. Some cars have a service light on the dashboard that will light up when a service is due. Remember that if you have a car on finance, it may be in your terms and conditions that it needs to be serviced.
