How to select the right Service schedule for your vehicle
Servicing requirements can vary hugely between different vehicle makes and models. At Banwell Garage we strongly recommend that vehicles are serviced once a year or every 10-12,000 miles.
Many modern vehicles run extended or ‘longlife’ service intervals (as explained above) – the choice is usually the customers’ when buying the vehicle new as to whether they wish to run extended intervals or remain on ‘fixed’ annual service intervals. Although oil technology and quality has improved dramatically over the years we still believe that an annual oil and filter change will increase the longevity of a vehicles engine.
During every service we carry out a full inspection of your vehicle, paying special attention to brakes, tyres and suspension components, if something doesn’t need changing just yet we will advise you and note it on your paperwork so you can keep an eye on items that may need attention in the future.
Engine oil & filter, pollen filter, air filter, fuel filter, and spark plugs are all changed in line with vehicle manufacturer service schedules (if applicable) based on a vehicle’s age and mileage.
Our Autodata computerised database allows us to follow the most up to date manufacturer recommended service schedules, ensuring that you and your vehicle receives the same attention you would from a main dealer. We also pay attention to smaller items often forgotten about, such as door/boot catches and hinges, these are lubricated to keep them working as they should – all part of the service here at Banwell Garage.
