How Often Should You Service Your Land Rover?

No matter what kind of car you drive, taking it for regular services is a must if you want to ensure that it continues to run smoothly. It also means you are better able to spot potential issues before they become seriously problematic, which will help keep you safe on the road, reduce the risks of breakdown and also save you money in the long run.

Manufacturers advise drivers to have their cars serviced every year or every 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. Depending on the vehicle you own, you may find you have a self-diagnostic system that will tell you when you need to take your car in for a service so make sure you don’t ignore any warnings that your vehicle gives you.

A car service will typically include engine oil changes and filter replacements if necessary, checks on the lights, tyres, the exhaust, brakes and steering, and checks on both the coolant and hydraulic fluid levels.

The cooling system will also be assessed, as will the suspension of the vehicle, the steering alignment and the condition of the battery.

Remember that a service on your car isn’t an alternative to your MOT – you will need to have this carried out, as well, as the MOT is your yearly technical safety inspection and isn’t intended to replace or repair any vehicle components that may have sustained wear and tear.

The main benefits of regular servicing include increasing your safety on the road, maintaining the value of your vehicle and reducing your running costs. Bear in mind that driving on tyres with no tread or having no coolant in the vehicle will increase the amount it costs for you to be on the road!
