How often should you service your car?

It is recommended that you have your car serviced every 12 months, or every 12,000 miles – whichever comes first. There are different types of car service, including Intermediate and Full, which are either 6-monthly or 12-monthly. Regular 6-monthly Intermediate, or interim, car services are especially recommended for heavy car users.

When should I service my car?

You also need to take into account a few considerations when deciding how often you should service your car. You’ll need to consider:

  • How well your vehicle has been maintained since your last car service
  • The terrain of the surfaces your vehicle is exposed to
  • The number of miles you drive on a regular basis

Based on these answers, some vehicles will need to have their car serviced more frequently than others. So, when you’re deciding when you should service your car, it’s important to take these factors into consideration.
