Why service at all?
Servicing your car means maintaining and replacing worn-out parts for your vehicle, to prevent the risk of a breakdown and a hefty bill incurred by a major component failing.
How often should you service?
Generally speaking, most cars need to be serviced once a year, or every 12 000 miles. However, there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to car servicing. In fact, every manufacturer has a recommended service schedule for its cars. But where the manufacturer’s guidelines are missing, a good mechanic will know what the best practice is for your vehicle.
