A car service saves you money on fuel, reduces the risk of having to awkwardly stand by your car on the hard shoulder and means you’re not caught out by expensive repairs. After all, there must be something else you’d rather invest that repair bill in, right?
It’s the simplest way to keep your car healthy and your wallet happy.
At Millers’ Motors, a Launceston car service ensures you don’t have to plan for future repairs. Especially, if you’re a Volkswagen, Audi, Seat or Skoda driver. The VAG range is where we specialise. It’s what we’re passionate about.
Ask anyone – for a VAG car service in Launceston, there’s only one place to go… Millers.
If the other benefits didn’t grab your attention, this will. A car service saves you money. A lot of money.
Sure, you’ve got the immediate investment. But, fewer repairs and an engine that is more efficient with your fuel means you save a lot of £££.
How do I know if my car service is due?
Most vehicles let you know they’re ready for a car service via a dashboard indicator or light that switches on. However, if your vehicle doesn’t have this, your car should have an annual service schedule. Failing that, many of our clients book their car service at the same time as their MOT to keep it simple.
Still unsure? Don’t worry. Just give us a call, we’re happy to help. Then, after your first Launceston car service with Millers, we’ll remind you 4 weeks before you’re next due.
How soon can you service my car?
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A LAUNCESTON CAR SERVICE?
Not all car services are created equally. It’s a sad fact, but true. However, our servicing standards are one of the key reasons we’re the leading local garage in Launceston. Each of our technicians is specially trained to a strict set of guidelines, which ensures your vehicle is performing optimally.
Lighting & Visibility – Front and rear lights are thoroughly checked for correct operation. Additional visibility items such as glass and wipers are inspected, as well as exterior mirrors and registration plates.
Steering, Drive, and Suspension – A comprehensive check of all joints, gaiters and wheel bearings is carried out. This is followed by an inspection of the front and rear shock absorbers and road springs.
Vehicle Interior – A thorough inspection is conducted of the seat belts, horn and hazard lighting, as well as all vehicle controls. We’ll also ensure the correct operation of the driver displays.
Braking – Front and rear brakes are checked and measured so service life can be reported upon. Where required, braking components are dismantled, cleaned and refitted to ensure correct operation.
Under Bonnet – A full visual inspection is carried out ensuring no leaks exist and all components are serviceable. Where applicable, service items such as your air filter, oil filter, sparks plugs, drive belts, etc are replaced.
Under Vehicle – After removal of your under trays, the engine oil is drained and the transmission checked for leaks. All fuel lines are inspected for security, then the fuel filter is replaced, where required, before replacing under trays.
Tyre Inspection – All road wheels and tyres are inspected for serviceability. Pressures are adjusted prior to refitting. Where applicable, the spare wheel is inspected or the inflation kit checked.
Final Checks – To conclude the service, the brake fluid and antifreeze are tested and the engine filled with new oil. Finally, the vehicle is road tested and your service record updated.
How much does it cost?
For the full service above, prices start from £195.00.
However, if you’re really serious about keeping your vehicle in tip top shape, our interim service, recommended 6 months after a full service, starts from £89.50.
