Having purchased your dream vehicle, it is essential that you protect your investment with professionally servicing.

The purpose of car servicing is to check and replace the parts which wear down over time and use. Some parts, such as oil and brake pads need checking more reguarly than others, such as the fuel filter and spark plugs.

Every car is different, so to find out what needs replacing when on your vehicle (known as ‘service intervals’), you should check your manufacturer’s handbook.

Which servicing should I choose, and when?

There are several levels of car servicing available at GC Motors Service Centre. By choosing a combination of these, the essential parts will be checked within manufacturer’s recommendations (in fact, our servicing actually exceed most required recommendations). Even if your car is used very little, it will still require regular servicing as many parts degrade even when not in use.
