Why service your car?

Do you ever wonder how often or when you should get your car serviced? We’ve put together a small guide to help you better understand why and when you should get your car serviced.

You should generally get your car serviced every 15,000km or every year. This will depend on your engine size and how old your car is, the older the car the more often the car will need to be serviced. Also, the larger the engine the more often the car will need to be serviced. You can find the exact service schedule guide in the owners-manual or by contacting your service department

What should you look out for between services? Generally, you won’t need to do much during services, if your keeping to the service guide. You should however keep an eye on the tread depth of your tyres, the minimum legal tyre tread is 1.6mm, it is recommended that once your tyres go under 3mm you should replace the tyres.

What are the benefits of a regular car service? The benefits of servicing your car at Mooney’s and sticking to the manufacture spec helps with the longevity of the car and will save you on unexpected cost. Also servicing your car regularly will improve fuel efficiency and helps maintain the value of the car. A car with evidence of regular servicing or full-service history at a main dealer will attract more buyers when selling.
