Car Servicing at Western Motors

Having your car serviced regularly is an essential part of owning a vehicle. But a busy lifestyle means that the recommended scheduled car services often don’t happen when they should. A car service should never be put on the long finger or postponed to a more convenient time. For some motorists, it is easier to go with the ‘not broken so no need to fix’ attitude and for many of us it simply is not a priority. But a well maintained, regularly serviced car can save you money on fuel consumption and is safer to drive. It may also save you hundreds of euros as early detection identifies small fixes before they become major faults. A full car service history will also affect the resale value of your car, there is no doubt that showing the vehicle has been well looked after could help you get a better price for it.

What is included in a car service?

This very much depends on the type of car service you opt for. All car services look for damage to the car body and wheels and a manual check of the gear box and brakes. A full car service is likely to include more thorough checks including the engine oil and oil filter system, fluid and coolant levels, brakes and steering, and of course the exhaust, the battery life and the state of the bodywork. It is important to note that the NCT is not an alternative to your car service. The NCT is a visual car inspection on cars of a certain age, and it does not ensure that a car is completely roadworthy. An NCT will highlight difficulties with suspension, emissions, tyre treads and lights, but neither a pre NCT test or the test itself are a replacement for a good car service.

Electric car servicing

Electric vehicles need less maintenance than the combustion engines. The main points we check in an EV are the electric motor(s) itself, battery pack, high-voltage electric cabling, charging port, suspension, brakes, steering, wheels, tyres, and lights. There are fewer fluids, like engine oil, and the brake wear is significantly reduced due to regenerative braking. At Sandyford Motor Centre, we recommend following the manufacturers schedule for servicing on all cars, including EV’s.

At Western Motors, we have a skilled team of technicians on hand to guide you through your car servicing journey.
