Did you know that UK motorists spend over £20 billion every year on motor services and repairs? That’s according to research from The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). Car care is essential – there are benefits to motor services.
You probably get your car MOTed every year, as legally required for most vehicles. But do you book your trusty motor for regular interim and full services?
To keep it at peak performance, a vehicle needs a service every 12,000 miles or 12 months – whichever comes soonest.
A service keeps your vehicle in the best possible condition and your mind at rest.
Servicing Your Motor Vehicle
Just Right Autos has a fully equipped and certified MOT test centre in our workshop in Witney, Oxfordshire. And we carry out testing quickly and efficiently.
However, an MOT only checks for certain aspects of your vehicle’s condition. Servicing covers your whole car, from brake fluid and water levels to major engine issues.
The manufacturer will have a minimum car service recommendation if your vehicle is under warranty. Here at Just Right Autos in Witney, Oxfordshire, we recommend you stick to that recommendation.
Often, motorists are unaware the car doesn’t have to be serviced by the manufacturer or dealership. You’re free to have your vehicle serviced by any authorised garage. Provided the service is carried out in line with the manufacturer’s service schedule and using approved parts.
At Just Right Autos, we use manufacturer parts wherever possible. If that’s impossible, we use parts covered by ‘Motor Vehicle Block Exemption Regulations 1400/2002’ (BER). BER means that, as a motorist, you can choose spare parts that will not invalidate the warranty.
Regular servicing maximises your engine’s performance and efficiency, saving you money on fuel. See our extensive list of MOT checks included in our service.
The Benefits of Expert Motor Services
Given our typical weather and road conditions, cars and vans on UK roads have a hard life.
You will accrue significant mileage throughout the year if you commute or constantly run around for family. It all equates to your vehicle’s wear and tear.
Worn components can impact other aspects of the car, meaning some parts could suffer from premature failure. Neglecting a worn or damaged part can result in a breakdown that may require costly roadside assistance.
From steering and suspension to vehicle brake maintenance and advice on tyre guidelines, Just Right Autos takes care of everything. In our modern, high-tech workshop in Witney, we will keep your vehicle running at its economical best.
Here are some more benefits of motor services.
When buying or selling a car, you need evidence that it has been maintained throughout its lifetime to make it desirable. The purpose of a vehicle’s service history is to let us know how previous owners have treated the car, so it affects market value significantly.
Demonstrate the vehicle has been serviced regularly per the manufacturer’s schedule and ensure the registered garage uses approved parts; subsequently, the car has the best chance of running well and needing minimal repairs and upkeep.
Historical records will make the motor more appealing on the resale market than a car with gaps in its service history. Ensure it’s serviced by a reputable mechanic and repaired with manufacturer-approved parts.
Just Right Autos can provide you with a top-quality service using only manufacturer-recommended parts, keeping your vehicle in the best possible running order for years to come and helping to retain value in your asset for potential resale.
Specialist Motor Services
At Just Right Autos, our expert mechanics offer motor service and repair of all your vehicle’s parts and systems, whether you drive the latest fully electric car or a vintage motor.
In the hot summer weather, you’ll be relying on your air conditioning to keep you cool on the move.
Our electric vehicle technicians are specially trained in AC repair, service, and recharge – we re-gas electric and hybrid vehicles. We can recharge and service vehicles with the older air-con systems and all modern systems.
DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) Cleaning
If you drive a diesel vehicle, you probably know that a diesel particulate filter (DPF) removes residue from a diesel engine’s exhaust gas. The DPF should reduce soot from diesel engines by 80%, but it doesn’t come without a problem: filter blockage.
Maintain and empty your diesel vehicle’s DPF regularly.
When that warning light comes on, it’s time to bring your vehicle in. Let our team use our specialist system to clean and maintain your DPF and keep it running at full capacity.
