Car Servicing

A well serviced car will provide better performance and deliver fuel economy and will have a longer life than one that is not serviced regularly. Servicing your car regularly keeps the essential components of your vehicle in good working order, preventing potentially dangerous failures or costly repairs in the future.

A car service should not be confused with an MOT. While an MOT is a legally required test through which the basic road worthiness of your vehicle is assessed, a service is a comprehensive check of the vital components of your vehicle to ensure they are safe and in good working order.

At Days Garage Edenbridge, we area able to service your car to the same service schedules as a main-dealers without affecting your warranty. We can also conduct an in-house evaluation of you car and service according to its requirements, providing either an interim or full service depending on its age, condition and service history.
