Servicing generally takes place in three or four different forms, oil and filter change, interim service and a full or major service.
The single most important thing that a person can do to prolong the life and performance of their car is to have an oil and filter change once a year or every six to twelve thousand miles.
By changing the oil you reduce the chance of wear on engine components. The oil filter needs to be changed at the same time because oil carries dirt and particles that clog up the filter which will ultimately reduce the life of the engine and its efficiency.
The more intense the service the more parts and components will be checked, to some extent all levels of servicing will help in the following:
- Saving you money- Preventing untimely breakdowns
- Increasing your MPG (i.e. make your fuel last longer)
- Increase your all round general vehicle safety
- Keeping within legal requirements
"Servicing your car can save you more than £100 on fuel each year"
We recommend having a major service once a year to fully ensure that your vehicle is running to its optimum efficiency. This will help stop unexpected breakdowns and allow you to better plan for your vehicle maintenance through the year.

What is Block Exemption?
The Block Exemption Regulation was brought in to allow customers to have their vehicles repaired without invalidating their warranties.
As stated in the Right To Repair campaign, "The Block Exemption Regulation includes elements that give the consumer the freedom to choose where they have their vehicle maintained without negating manufacturer's warranties. To enable repairs to be made, the vehicle manufacturer under the Block Exemption Regulation should make technical information freely available to the independent market."
What does this mean for the consumer?
Basically, this means that providing the independent garage you are using, such as Glyncorrwg Mot Centre use original parts or parts of matching quality, then the consumer no longer needs to pay the high prices that dealers demand and the customer's warranty will remain completely valid with the dealer.
We only use new, quality vehicle parts. If you wish to maintain your vehicle with us during the warranty period, you can do so without invalidating the warranty.
