Why It’s Important to Undergo Regular Car Servicing for your European Car
Most of us know that we should be regularly servicing our European cars, preferably once a year or every 15,000 kilometres- whichever comes first. Even if you drive just a few thousand kilometres a year, you still need to service your car annually.
Most European cars are now equipped with a multitude of sensors, checking and controlling many systems from climate control to keeping safety distance. Though, these sensors optimise your driving experience, technology really hasn’t reached the point where it can check safety risks like:
- Tyre wear
- Thickness of Brake pads and disks
- Suspension wear
- Oil leaks
- Windshield visibility
- Coolant leaks
So why is regular servicing so important? Unnecessary risks to your vehicle can be costly both in time and money and could potential ruin your day or holiday. However, through regular servicing these risks can be easily minimized.
Trust your sense and the vehicle sensors
One of the main advantages of sensors is that they detect small changes in vehicle behaviour from manufacturer’s design. Many sensors will turn warning light on after an issue has occurred. This could mean that you need to get your vehicle checked since it could get you stuck on the side of the road.
5 Reasons Why it’s important to service your vehicle regularly:
- Tyre Wear
The road to safety starts with making sure your wheels are aligned and your tyres have enough tread. If your tyres are worn, the contact surface of the vehicle with the road is at question, if your wheels are out of alignment, your car is more likely to drift out of the lane.
- Brakes pads and disks
Regular servicing doesn’t just help your car run better; it helps it to stop better too. Each time you slow down or stop your brake pads and brake rotors wears. Over time this wear and tear will affect the efficiency of your brakes. Brakes are one of the most important safety systems in your car and it’s crucial that you get them checked regularly.
- Suspension wear
Suspension system contain springs, shock absorbers, rubber bushes and linkages that connects the vehicle to its wheels. Suspension, absorbs road vibration and keep the vehicle balanced and stable on the road. The suspension system wear can only be detected by inspection at the workshop. So, getting a regular service by experts is essential to keeping you safe on the road.
Did you know that if you don’t change your oil regularly, it may build up as sludge? This can damage the engine in your car to the point that you could potentially need to replace the engine in your car. So, getting a regular service can easily save you thousands.
If your wiper blades aren’t replaced when they are worn, they produce an uneven wipe, which leaves you without a clear view of the road ahead. Having a clear windscreen is essential for judging distance.
