Should I Still Service My Car?

Car maintenance during cost-of-living crisis


When lots of people are tightening their purse strings, it’s a time when many will look to where they can cut costs.


Some motorists are putting off the maintenance and servicing of their cars to save money because of the rising costs.


With less money to spend we understand that spending needs to be cut but do not put off looking after your vehicle.  Whilst it is easy to understand why people are holding off oil changes, repairs and maintenance, it can be a false economy.


Looking past the fact that when selling a car, potential buyers may be put off the purchase of a vehicle that has skipped regular servicing, unmaintained cars may have hazardous safety issues.

Mechanical problems will generally only get worse and may result in more expensive damage and repairs.


Reece, the manager of our Stowmarket branch, said that a well running engine will help with fuel consumption.  He also advised that well maintained and inflated tyres will not only help the handling of your vehicle but will also save on fuel consumption.


Don’t let your servicing schedule slip and book in for a free tyre safety check at any of our tyre branches in Sudbury, Haverhill, Diss, Saffron Walden, Bury st Edmunds or Stowmarket.
