WHAT IS TESTED DURING A VEHICLE SERVICE?

A service is a vehicle inspection that keeps your car in a reliable, safe and fully functioning condition based on guidelines set out by the vehicle manufacturer. The service schedule will recommend specific checks and replacement parts including a car oil change at certain intervals. Kwik Fit offers a range of car servicing packages to match your vehicle usage and all include an oil change and filter replacement as standard. For a full list of what is included in our service packages, see our car servicing checklist.

WHAT DO I NEED TO TAKE WITH ME?

Please bring along your vehicle logbook so the technician can stamp this once the service is completed. This isn’t essential but a service stamp in your logbook each time you have your vehicle serviced can increase it resell value and shows potential buyers that the car has been well maintained. If booking a full service, please also bring your locking wheel nut key so that the technician can carry out a full wheel-off brake check.

WHEN IS MY CAR SERVICE DUE?

Check your vehicle logbook to see when you last received a servicing stamp. Your vehicle manufacturer will suggest an appropriate interval or number of miles travelled until your next recommended service in your handbook. Many modern cars feature on-board computers which keep track of when your car service is due. Drivers who own cars with self-diagnostic features like these are advised not to ignore these warning signs even if they occur before 12 months or 12,000 miles has been reached.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU SERVICE YOUR CAR?

As a rule of thumb, it is recommended that your car receives a full service every 12,000 miles or every 12 months (whichever comes sooner).
More general check-ups, such as our Essential Car Care offer and Interim Servicing option, are also available to ensure your vehicle is kept in the best possible condition. We also provide manufacturer servicing for all major makes and models of vehicle using official manufacturer service schedules to determine when your next service is due, and the type of service required.
