Car and Van Servicing
Correct regular servicing is essential to ensure your vehicle is in the best possible working order. Whether you use your vehicle for the weekly shop or for travelling long distance on a daily basis, it is important to keep your vehicle correctly maintained. Most vehicle manufactures recommend that a vehicle is serviced at least once a year or 10,000 miles whichever occurs first. Routine servicing not only helps to extend the life of your vehicle, but it can also reduce the risk of unfortunate breakdown and costly repair bills.

New Car Warranty and servicing – Your rights and responsibilities As a car owner, you have the right to take your car to any licenced garage or mechanic for servicing, but you must ensure that the servicing is carried out exactly as per the manufacturer’s servicing schedule. This means servicing must be undertaken on time and must use any parts or lubricants specified by the manufacturer.
A guide for motorists and independent repairers In October 2003 European Union legislation, ‘Block Exemption Regulations 1400/2002’ (BER) came into force. This gave motorists more freedom in their decision as to who should repair and service their vehicles – now any garage can be used without invalidating the manufacturer’s warranty (subject to certain conditions). To find out more please download the What is Block Exemption? pdf on this page.
