Servicing FAQs

At Treadfirst, we provide comprehensive car servicing works to vehicles of all makes and models.

When you bring your car in for a service, our expert engineers will be happy to discuss the process and any issues you might have. But we might also be able to answer your questions here.

On this page, you’ll find some frequently asked questions regarding car servicing, so have a read through before visiting one of our branches to ensure you’re fully prepared before your appointment.

What makes/models of car do you service?

We service all cars no matter their make, model or age. We also offer MOTs and repairs for all cars, so if we do find any issues, we’ll be able to make repair arrangements for you.

What servicing packages do you offer?

At Treadfirst, we offer three servicing packages, these are as follows:

  • Bronze – basic check up and oil change.
  • Silver – maintenance checks on your tyres, steering, oil levels and suspension.
  • Gold – examination of over 70 components, checking for wear and tear, damage and signs of more problematic issues at risk of developing.
How often should I have my car serviced?

The answer to this varies from car to car and driver to driver. Manufacturers recommend different servicing intervals for different models, but you should at least aim to have a full service once every year depending on mileage. For more information on this topic, read our dedicated article.

My car is running fine, do I really need a service?

Even if it feels like there are no obvious issues with your car, it’s wise to have your car serviced at regular intervals. If you haven’t had any servicing in the past year, you should book your car in so we can inspect it — we might find a minor issue that could develop into something major if left unchecked.

Can you repair my car if you find something wrong with it?

We always endeavour to get you back on the road as quickly as possible. If we are able to, we will carry out repairs there and then; however, while this isn’t always possible, we will make repair arrangements for you as soon as we can.

Which service centres can I bring my car to?

You can arrange to have your car serviced at any of our service centres in Saffron Walden, Sudbury and Stowmarket.

How much will my service cost?

The final cost depends on which servicing package you choose and whether or not you need repairs made or replacement parts ordering in. Our technicians will always provide you with a transparent quote and final bill, and are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding this.

My car needs an MOT and service, can you do both and which should I do first?

We can carry out both an MOT and a full service on your car. We recommend having the MOT first, however, if you haven’t had regular servicing for a while, it’s a good idea to arrange for a service as soon as possible.
