Why regular servicing is essential!

Although many drivers argue that the cost of a service is simply not in their current budget and, since the car doesn’t have any imminent danger signs, they may not be thinking about getting a service.

But perhaps the penny-wise adage may prove well in this case since the regular maintenance of a vehicle is a proven saving, not only for the pocket but for the very sake of the car itself.

What’s more, regular servicing can even add to your resale value because most buyers will want a full-service record; and Wellington Mechanics can provide you with all the necessary service statements, guaranteeing you peace of mind and a vehicle that won’t let you down.

Tyres are more important than you think

Tyres are simply the wheels that hold the important parts of the car on the road. Worn or partially/excessively inflated tyres may even lead to accidents. Petrol consumption and a comfortable ride may also be affected by the tyre condition.

However, the most important thing of all is the grip the tyre has on the road. In wet conditions, imperfect tyres can lead to serious accidents. The tread of your tyre needs to be checked by a professional. Wellington Mechanics will gladly tell you if you need to replace one or all four of your tyres, just by studying the tread.

We suggest you check them once a month. Check for pressures, tread or any damage such as an embedded nail or foreign object.

And one last thing, don’t neglect to check your spare tyre. It will lose pressure over time; and in the event of a blowout, you will need that spare tyre..

Check your car’s fluids

You can have your car fluids checked at any service station. Or if you’re the hands-on type, lifting the bonnet and taking just three or four minutes is all it takes. But we at Wellington Mechanics strongly suggest you check your basic fluids to ensure that, for example, your engine is well lubricated.

If you are not well-versed in car maintenance, we strongly suggest not doing this yourself. Rather, bring your vehicle into your nearest Midas Service Centre. We will gladly have your car serviced, and you will leave with complete peace of mind..

A well-maintained car

Once you’ve managed all the minor servicing of your car such as an oil change, take your car for a ride and pay special attention to the sounds and movement. A bumpy ride or swerving to the left may indicate an alignment issue. But if all seems nice, smooth and just the way you want it to be, then enjoy the rest of the ride.

If the sound of your car changes, it may suggest a small crack in your exhaust system. This would need attention immediately.

A shaking steering wheel could indicate tyre problems. Or, if your brakes feel hard or different, visit a professional mechanic immediately before it’s too late.
