What You Should Know About A Volkswagen Service
Service Options And Costs
The cost of servicing depends on the type of car and the type of service. Depending on the service schedule, your car may be due for an interim, full or major service. All our service options include oil and oil filter changes, diagnostic checks, software updates, safety inspection, road test, washing and vacuuming. Being a specialist garage, we will also reset the service light/schedule and stamp the service book. We also offer a number of specific services like MOT tests, wheel alignment and gearbox repair. maintenance and service.
The Importance of Regular Service
For many people, car servicing is another item on their to-do list. Regular servicing is more critical than most people think. Your car has several mechanical, hydraulic and electronic systems that must work together optimally to give you the reliability, comfort and fuel efficiency that you are used to. Services may include change of lubricants, topping up fluids, replacement of worn parts and consumables, safety checks and test drives. A service ensures that all components of your car are working correctly.
All cars, including your Volkswagen, have a service schedule specified by the manufacturer. These schedules specify when a service must be performed, what should be checked and what consumables should be replaced. These schedules are designed after careful consideration of component lives, likely wear during normal use and checks to ensure safety and optimum performance. Without regular service, performance degradation and unexpected and often, inconvenient breakdowns are possible.
Although the main dealer will give quality service, it’s costly and sometimes inconvenient. Taking your car to a Volkswagen specialist garage like Volksmaster is the better option. At Volksmaster, we provide a dealer-equivalent service at a lower cost. As a specialist garage, we get the latest technical information, updates and full support from Volkswagen. Our friendly staff will also cater to any special requirements or concerns that you may have. We also give you many convenient options for service.
Taking Your Car To The Dealer Is Not Mandatory
New EU regulations, in force since 2003, prohibit manufacturers from insisting on you having to service your car at the main dealer garages as a condition to preserve warranty. So, it’s not mandatory to take your car to the dealer for service except for free services. However, manufacturers can insist that services be performed in a timely manner according to their schedule.
They can also insist on the use of genuine spares. As long as you get your car serviced at a Volkswagen specialist garage like Volksmaster, your warranty is valid. Volksmaster uses company-provided spares for cars in warranty. Once your car is out of warranty, we give you the option of choosing either company-provided spares or equivalent high-quality OEM spares.
Why You Should Entrust Volkswagen Service To A Specialist
Specialist garages like Volksmaster have the right equipment, company-trained mechanics, original spares, access to software and technical updates from Volkswagen. With other garages, you can’t be sure about the quality. At a specialist, you also have the advantage of having your service record updated. Service at non-specialist garages may leave faults undetected, use poor spares and the wrong equipment. Incomplete or faulty service can result in costly breakdowns or other problems.
