Car Servicing

If you service your car regularly in line with recommended servicing intervals you are much less likely to incur costly repairs in the future as servicing can catch component issues early on before they become a problem. This not only saves you money and helps avoid potentially dangerous issues with your car but it also helps to extend its lifespan considerably.

Servicing should not be confused with an MOT. An MOT test is required by law and assesses whether you car meets the basic criteria to be deemed safe to drive on the road at the time of test. A service, however, is a much more comprehensive check of your car’s vital components and goes far beyond an MOT test.

At Days Garage Edenbridge Station Road, our servicing can be done to manufacturer specification, identical to main-dealer servicing or to our own service levels based on our own appraisal of your particular car’s needs. For the latter, we may advise an interim or full service depending on what is most suitable for your car. You can find out more about all of our servicing levels, including manufacturer specification here.
