Car Servicing

Cars that are serviced regularly according with recommended intervals typically last longer and have fewer problems during their lifetime. That’s because a service will ensure problems with your car’s components are spotted before they become dangerous or expensive. Regular servicing also delivers better fuel economy and performance, saving you money in the long-run.

Car servicing is not the same as an MOT, nor is an MOT a replacement for regular servicing. An annual MOT test is required by law and checks that at the time of the test your car is roadworthy. A service on the other hand, is a full check and assessment of the vital parts of your vehicle to ensure that they are working properly and are safe and overall is a much more comprehensive check of your vehicle.

At Days Garage Godstone we are able to service your car to the same level as a main-dealer, however, if your car requires a more bespoke service, we can carry out our own servicing based on our own evaluation of your car’s needs, service history and condition. You can find out more about all of our servicing levels here.
