MINOR CAR SERVICE

Minor doesn’t imply that this car service is any less important than a major service. Instead it infers that this essential service is relatively quick – preventing unnecessary wear, failure, and damage to your vehicles major parts. Minor service intervals occur more frequently than major services, and will vary according to a vehicle’s make, model, and manufacturer guidelines. What can you expect in a minor service? Mechanical staff will change the engine oil and filter, and then check the following:

Brakes
Exhaust and transmission
Engine belt, filters, and hoses
Suspension and steering
Lights
Tyres and tyre pressure
Windscreen wipers
Battery
Top up other fluids and oils to keep the car running in tip-top condition!
The service book will be stamped accordingly and a vehicle inspection report handed to the customer.

MAJOR CAR SERVICE

Like the minor service, a major service is designed to extend a vehicle’s engine life and performance. A major service, however, is more thorough. The technician will go through the same checks as for a minor service, do an engine oil and filter change, and then inspect:

Exhaust, brakes, steering and transmission
Engine belts and external hoses
Lights
Tyres and tyre pressure
Battery
Windscreen wipers
The cooling system and coolant
Brake fluid
Replace spark plugs
Inspect air and fuel filters
Perform an engine flush treatment if necessary
The technician will complete a full vehicle inspection report and stamp the customer’s service book.
