How often should your car be serviced?

Even if you are not doing the kilometres, it’s still important to service your car regularly, as most fluids in your vehicle are susceptible to moisture and need to be inspected and replaced at specified intervals.

What happens if I don’t service my vehicle on time?


Reduced fuel economy, poor driving feel and even major mechanical failures are all possible if regular maintenance and part replacement is not carried out.


Modern engine oils contain cleaning agents which help keep the inside of the engine in good condition, but the oil slowly deteriorates the longer it is used.


Failing to change this oil causes the passageways inside the engine to block up with carbon deposits and increases wear on the internal components of the engine.


Brake fluid is another component that needs to be checked and replaced regularly, as it absorbs moisture from the air, which reduces the performance of the braking system.


Most manufacturers recommend flushing the braking system every 2 years, regardless of distance travelled.

The basic rule is your car should be serviced for every 10,000km or 6 months.
