How often should I service my car?

There are several factors affecting the frequency with which you should service your car. Many people ask, how often should a car be serviced, however the key considerations are:

- The amount of miles you drive.
- How well your vehicle has been maintained.
- The surfaces and quality of road you travel on.

At Kineholme/manufacturer, we suggest you have your Renault car serviced every 18,000 miles or twelve months, whichever comes first. And for Dacia vehicles, every 12,000 miles or twelve months.

Regular car users, who drive many miles a year, we recommend that you undertake a VHC (vehicle health check) every 5,000 miles. What is done during a car service? We will check all the fluid levels, change the oil and oil filter and lubricate moving parts.

Our workshop is fully equipped with the most up-to-date equipment and our Renault factory trained technicians carry out servicing, Mots and repairs on all makes of cars and offer a full diagnostic facility. Our long-standing service team members have been with us many years and have over 60 years' Renault experience between them! How do I know when my car needs servicing? Most modern cars have an in-built computer that ensures a warning light- often in the image of a spanner- flashes up on the dashboard when your car has reached its service interval.

If your car doesn’t have this facility, you can contact us and we’ll advise you about the specific servicing requirements for your vehicle and help you to obtain competitive, local quotes for the work needed. You can also check the servicing schedule in your car’s manual pack, which will give you detailed information from the manufacturer,regarding the servicing of your vehicle.

Remember! Regular servicing increases the safety, reliability and life span of your vehicle. Small faults can be discovered early making the chance of breakdown much less likely. What’s more, research shows that cars with full service history have a resale value of up to 26% more than similar un-serviced cars! Need a car servicing? Kineholme can provide high levels of servicing, at competitive rate or why not ask about interest free service plan!
