Regular servicing can help to keep your car running smoothly and identify potential problems early on, reducing the risk of more severe and costly issues in the future.
At Kwik-Fit, servicing your vehicle is our priority. When you bring your car for regular maintenance we will carry out essential checks on your car and recommend any repairs to keep you safe and on the road.
We believe that safety should be our top priority, therefore we offer every customer a Free Safety Check whenever they visit a Kwik-Fit branch. One of our qualified staff will ensure that your brakes, suspension, steering and tyres meet all of the necessary safety requirements. If something falls short, we’ll let you know by how much and what you should do next.
You need to take good care of your car, just like you would your body. A vehicle needs regular maintenance to keep it moving and increase its lifespan. Your vehicle is an important asset too; so taking care of it will save you a lot of money and retain its value.
These days, most modern cars pop a light on the dashboard to remind you that it is due for a service, but what if your vehicle is a few years old and doesn’t have these features?
The basic rule is to service your car every six months or 5,000km. Even if you are not doing the kilometres, it is still essential to service your car regularly because fuel quality, heat and dust heavily affect your car's performance.
If you start hearing unusual noises from your car, it's time to get it looked at. Delaying it could be making matters worse. Listen out for squeaks, rubbing or clunking noises, especially when going over bumps, steering, or braking. They could all indicate a potential problem.
When engine oil hasn't been changed for a long time it has changed from clear yellow to thick black full of deposits. If you find your car is using more oil than usual, or there's black smoke from the exhaust, bring the car to Kwik-Fit to be assessed.
Coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid and transmission fluid should be checked regularly. A leak can affect the way your car drives. If you spot a leak, try to identify the colour to help speed up the repair process.
If you're planning a long distance road trip and your car hasn't been serviced for some time, bring it to Kwik-Fit. We will ensure that everything is running smoothly so that you're safe on the road and you have one less thing to worry about.
It’s important to service your car to check the levels of your oil, water, radiator, battery, air and tyres. This will ensure that your car is running at 100%, making your drives both smoother and more secure.
