Car Servicing

At Setyres we offer car servicing that will help to maintain the condition of your vehicle, lower fuel consumption and avoid the risk of breaking down on the road.



Why does my car need servicing?

Regular car servicing is important as it serves as a mechanical check of your vehicle. Unlike the MOT Test, which ensures that your vehicle is road safe and meets legal requirements, a car service inspects the items of your vehicle susceptible to wear, such as spark plugs, brake pads, the gear box and exhaust system.



When does my car need servicing?

Your car requires a service every 12,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes sooner. For high mileage vehicles you should also consider having an interim service either every 6 months or 6,000 miles. Some car manufacturers recommend that your oil is changed more frequently than your vehicle will need servicing, so you should check your vehicle handbook for this information.



Servicing Options

At Setyres we offer a range of servicing options so you can select the one which best meets your vehicle requirements:



Full Car Service

Our full car service should be undertaken every 12,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes sooner, and will provide all the essential maintenance that your vehicle requires.

This includes changing your oil and replacing your oil filter, checking under the bonnet and inspecting your spark plugs, which will be replaced if necessary.

In addition, our technicians will check your cabin filter, air filter and fuel filter and the water, screen wash and antifreeze containers will be topped up.

To complete your service, checks will be carried out on the outside and inside of your vehicle and components such as your lights, brakes, wipers and tyres will be inspected. In addition, your exhaust and all the components of your steering and suspension system will be checked for corrosion, leaks and effectiveness.



Interim Car Service

An interim car service is shorter than a full service and is ideal for vehicles that travel long distances or are frequently used. Setyres recommends an interim service is undertaken every 6,000 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first.

Our specialists will change your oil and oil filter, top up your water, screen wash and antifreeze containers and check the outside of your vehicle as part of an interim service.

Furthermore, your brakes, tyres, wipers, exhaust, lights and suspension rubbers, shocks and springs will also be inspected.



Oil & Filter Service

Different manufacturers have different recommendations when it comes to having your oil changed and filter replaced, and this can vary from 3,000 miles to 12,000 miles. For this reason, we would recommend checking your vehicle handbook.

An oil and filter service should be undertaken at least once a year if it is not included as part of your interim or full service. Oil is vital when it comes to lubricating your vehicle’s engine and over time it can lose its efficiency and cause excessive wear on the internal components of your engine.
