A few reasons why you should have your car serviced regularly

Whilst there is no legal requirement to have your vehicle serviced except possibly as a condition of warranty. There are a few reasons why it is worth getting a regular service for your vehicle.

Not having your vehicle serviced may save a few quid but may end up costing you time and money. Henlow Motor Services will often spot the beginnings of a problem that could develop into something costly and expensive to fix. A car that is regularly serviced is less likely to breakdown – which can prove expensive and very inconvenient.


Regular car servicing will almost certainly improve the lifespan of your Vehicle.
