Most modern cars only need a service once a year, but older cars require a service once every six months. The manufacturer’s service handbook will set what is best for your car. The type of service you need will also be affected by how you use your car. For example, lots of short journeys where the engine does not have a chance to warm up properly will probably mean more frequent oil and filter changes.
DOES YOUR CAR NEED A SERVICE?
If your vehicle is under warranty, it can still be serviced by RPMotors, without invalidating the warranty conditions. It is covered by the Block Exemption rule. The European Commission rules on car block exemption came into full effect in October 2003. This new ruling allows independent garages the same access to technical information on your car from the manufacturer, and more importantly, it means you do not need to go back to a franchise dealer to retain warranty cover.

Fault Code Readings
If your Engine, ABS or SRS Airbag light is on, it means your vehicle has one or more Trouble Codes. The “Malfunction Indicator Lamp” (or MIL ) comes on to warn you when the Onboard Diagnostic System detects a problem. We can communicate with your onboard computer to give you a cost effective solution.
