Most vehicle owners have procrastinated at some point in time in taking care of required maintenance service or needed car repair because of their busy schedules or tight budget. They think that by extending a required service interval they are saving money. Or, as long as their car can get them from point A to point B, they put off a needed car repair. However, they may actually spend more money on an emergency car repair than the cost of the maintenance service.

Taking your car to an auto shop for an inspection is just like us humans going to the doctor for an annual checkup. We want to make sure that everything in our bodies is running smoothly, and the same goes for our car! The reason that vehicle manufacturers publish a service schedule is to make sure that the car operates reliably and safely for many miles. Not only will regular car service prevent costly car repair, but it is also crucial for keeping your car safe and roadworthy, protecting yourself and other drivers.

The best place to find out what type of service your car requires is your vehicle owner’s manual. It lists the mileage or time interval for each service, as well as the relevant details of each service. There are typically three levels of car service:

  • What is included in a Basic Service? This service typically includes an oil and filter change and a visual inspection of the components of your vehicle. Fluids (such as washer fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze, and steering fluid) will typically be topped-off. Also, your mechanic should inspect key components (over 35 of them) of your car to ensure itis in the best condition possible. This will include brakes, tires, etc., and also recommend any additional work needed.
  • What is included in a Full Service? This service typically consists of all the basic service work listed above plus an extra 15-30 additional checks on the car’s components (compared to the basic service).
  • What is included in a Major Car Service? This service includes everything covered in the basic and full service. A major car service is the most comprehensive service available. It also includes all wear, service and maintenance items recommended by the manufacturer.

The cost of major car service will vary depending on your type of car. Please ask your auto repair mechanic to provide you with a cost estimate before beginning any work.
