Geoff Kildord’s presentation to his follow memebers at Metro Networking breakfast on Thursday 21st April showed why the answer to this question was  “Absolutely”

 

Why ?

It is important to have your car serviced on a regular schedule to prevent premature wear on the engine, tyres, transmission etc. It also keeps you informed on the condition of safety items such as brakes & reliability items such as fan belts & radiator hoses.

 

The Most Important Factor

Servicing keeps you up to date with where you car is mechanically such as

  •   How much brake pads are left
  •   How much tyre tread is left

 

Why Not servicing your car could change your life

A neglected car will become unreliable and a potentially dangerous. Imagine coming down the bottom of the freeway towing a boat and running out of brakes.  The risk of harming yourself, your family, friends or other drivers on the road would be life changing.

 

Questions to Ask Before You Start

What service am I due for and how much will it cost ?

 

How do I find a reputable mechanic ?

Mistakes

Trying to service a vehicle nowadays is risky.  Cars are very complicated today and mistakes such as incorrect engine oil can be costly. Engine management and electronics can easily be affected causing costly repairs

 

What could go wrong if I service my own car?

Customer thought the correct battery for his girlfriend’s car was too expensive so he went to the local spare parts store and purchased a much cheaper however incorrect battery and fitted it himself. When he closed the bonnet the battery terminals shorted out on the bonnet causing the battery to explode & car catch on fire causing about $6000 damage.
