Travelling with young children can be stressful at the best of times. With limited attention spans, a long car journey soon becomes arduous for even the most angelic of your brood. So imagine if, on top of this, you break down. It’ll delay your journey, potentially cost a fortune and may even prevent you reaching your planned destination.
Whilst maintaining regular servicing of your car won’t guarantee you’ll never break down, it can certainly help prevent it by catching problems in their infancy. Regular servicing also helps keep your car running and its best.
When you book a car service the garage carry out a more comprehensive inspection of your vehicle than at your annual MOT. Mechanics check vital parts to ensure they are in working order and are safe. They also carry out oil and oil filter replacement which ensures your engine continues to work at its best and they top up vital fluids like your power steering fluid.
As well as preventing breakdowns and helping to keep your car running in tip-top condition, servicing has a number of other benefits. Failing to keep your car serviced can result in some nasty outcomes, which are clearly detailed in the below infographic from Stoneacre.
