How Often Should You Have Your Car Serviced?

We are seeing more and more people delaying having their car serviced. Although it is recommended that cars are serviced every 10,000kms or 6 months, many of our clients are not having their car serviced that regularly.

Having your car serviced regularly is not a legal requirement, but there are plenty of important reasons why you should be getting your car serviced more often.


Safety – Having your car serviced regularly means we can detect any safety problems sooner. Early detection is key, as you don’t want to be driving around in an unsafe vehicle.

Fuel Efficiency – If your car is not driving at its best, it can run less efficiently and ultimately use more petrol to run.

Vehicle Value – Planning on selling your car second hand? One way you can attract more buyers and get a higher selling price is by showing that the car has been regularly serviced and maintained.

Save Money – Regularly having a car service ensures problems are detected early. If you are not servicing your car regularly these small problems can become larger, and ultimately, more expensive to fix.

Longer Life-Span – Just as a person sees a doctor to improve their health and the longevity of their life, cars need to be regularly serviced by a mechanic. By having regular ‘check-ups’ your car’s life-span is likely to last longer.

These are fantastic reasons as to why you should be having your car serviced more regularly. Don’t keep putting off your car service – Book in your next car service with Nunawading Engine Clinic today: 0418 985 289
