Booking your car in for regular services keeps it running efficiently. A service is essentially a health check of your car, checking everything from the vehicle's horn to replacing engine oil.
Ensuring you get your vehicle serviced regularly not only keeps it in the best condition, but it can also help retain as much value as possible on the vehicle. Buyers like vehicles that come with a full service history as it shows that you’ve taken care of it.
Types of Car Sevice
At Plympton Car Centre you can book your vehicle for one of two types of service on offer:
- Interim Service - £159
- Full Service - £259
A full service should be done every 12,000 miles, this is generally once a year for most regular car owners. During a full service checks will be done across the vehicle, but unlike on an interim service, on a full service we will replace oil and air filters, replace the spark plugs and replace the fuel filter on diesel vehicles.
In an interim service we carry out all the checks we do on a full service, however, filter and spark plug replacements are not carried out.
Check out the table below to see what is included in an interim service and a full service.
