We almost always seem to have a strong feeling against getting an auto servicing. It can be hard to understand why but whenever the time comes that we realize we need to get our car serviced, we seem to groan, moan and whine about it. After all, we’re human and we can’t help it. But, our vehicle takes us wherever we need to get to and for that we’re grateful.
But still we need to find an auto repair shop that offer car services in Auckland that make servicing your car a painless and affordable experience.

How Often Should I Get a Car Serviced?
Depending on the age and fuel type of your vehicle can be a major difference. If your vehicle is more than four years old and is run by petrol then a service needs to be done every 6 months or ever 10,000 kms. If your car is run on diesel service intervals need to be done every 3 months or every 5,000kms but if the vehicle isn’t used on the road or in dusty conditions this can be extended to 6 months or every 7,500kms.
What’s Involved in an Auto Servicing?
What is usually involved in a vehicle service is checking the air conditioning, doing any auto electrical repairs if needed, completing battery services, checking the brakes for any repairs, checking the cambelts, making computer diagnostics, checking the cooling system, testing the clutches, completing any diesel repairs, checking engine tunes, checking electrical systems, checking the exhaust, doing any full mechanical repairs, checking the fuel system, making any petrol repairs, checking the radiator, checking the starter suspensions and the transmission and looking at the tyres and the warranty.
Us New Zealanders can at times be much too busy to even think about getting our car serviced, especially if we think that there is nothing wrong with our car but at the end of the day it is all about our safety. Something could be going wrong with our car and we haven’t even noticed it so it’s always a good idea to just get it looked at.
Getting your car serviced when it’s time for one is key to prolong the life of your vehicle and it will save you a bunch of money in the long run, rather than having a sudden car crash on a busy road when we’ve just decided to avoid getting a service. Even if you don’t use your vehicle everyday, it still pays to have your car serviced as many parts of the vehicle start to deteriorate in time.
