Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Most manufacturers recommend having a full car service once a year or every 12,000 miles, whichever comes first.

The Car Clinic Team pride ourselves on carrying out our servicing to manufacturer requirements – we won’t just give your vehicle a basic garage service. 

Please note: A full service doesn’t include repairs to your vehicle or new parts unless listed.

It depends on what type of service you have. A basic service typically takes 1 – 1 1/2 hours, a full service should take 4 hours and a major service can take 6 hours.* (This varies from model to model. For example, bigger, more complex vehicles take longer to service). A ‘Manufacturer’s’ full service will naturally take much longer than an interim service, as it’s a more comprehensive process.

Regular servicing is the best way to extend the lifespan of your vehicle and ensure that faults are identified before they become serious issues saving you ££s.

You are not obliged (since October 2003) to have the car serviced by a franchised dealer during the warranty period.

However, you must get it serviced according to the manufacturer’s recommended schedule and criteria using only manufacturer approved parts. The Car Clinic does services which adhere to manufactures strict criteria & standards.

Regular servicing is important for health and to maintain the system working effectively. Up to 15% of the refrigerant gas will be lost annually.

Synthetics and semi-synthetics give improved performance at high temperatures and support extended standard drain intervals. They are the preferred choice for high performance cars or for drivers who value long life and durability.
