At Nork Motor Engineering, we believe that a regular servicing is vital in maintaining and improving the condition of your vehicle. We understand that many motorists are concerned about the cost of owning and running a car these days, but we believe that a regular servicing more than pays for itself and will be a justifiable cost to all motorists.
These are some of the reasons why we believe that your vehicle needs to be serviced on a regular basis:
Servicing increases safety
When your car is serviced on a regular basis, the number of faults it is likely to have will decrease. At Nork Motor Engineering, we are big believers in prevention being better than the cure. When your car is examined by experts with experience and who know what they are looking for, it is likely that faults and issues will be found before they become too big. This means you will be safer on the road, which is an important issue for many motorists, especially when their loved ones are in the car.
Servicing increases performance
By having your car serviced on a regular basis, you will minimise the wear and tear on your vehicle. This helps to keep everything ticking over as it should, which means that the performance of your car stays at a consistent level. A car has a huge number of components and if a number of these components are operating at a lower level, your car will be slower or less responsive. By having your car serviced regularly, you will help to maintain the level of performance of these individual components.
Servicing can lower fuel costs
A well services car provides a greater level of fuel economy. Given the cost of fuel in the current climate, anything which allows you to use fuel more efficiently and effectively has to be seen as a positive thing for drivers. Knowing that you can save money in the short and long term is a great boon for motorists.
Servicing can maintain the value of your car
If you are looking to sell or part-exchange your car at some point, maintaining its condition is crucial to getting a fair price. Having your car serviced on a regular basis will ensure that it is kept in good condition and you will have a paper trail of the positive condition of your car over the time of your ownership. This is something that will strengthen your hand when determining the price or value of your car when it comes time to move on.
