When it comes to your car, prevention is better than cure. This is why getting your car regularly serviced is so important. Not only will it save you money on hefty repairs, but it’ll also help your car to last longer. And the same goes for your tyres. If you live in Collinswood, come into your local Goodyear Tyre and Auto shop – at 215 North East Road, Hampstead Gardens.
Car servicing is not only about saving you money. Probably the most important thing is keeping you, your passengers and other people on the road safe.
Look out for warning signs, such as unusual sounds, excessive smoke, popping engine, flashing lights, and excess oil use. You want to make sure you keep on top of these things, to ensure you avoid things like:
Crashes on the road
Using more petrol
Poor driving performance
Increased harmful exhaust emissions
Decreasing your car’s value
Voiding your warranty
Take your car to a professional, like the experts at Goodyear Tyre and Auto. We’ll keep your car on the road for longer.

What’s involved in a car service?
Generally, there are two types of car services: minor (every 10,000km), and major (every 30,000km). The exact kilometres depend on your car’s manufacturer, but these are approximate times to service your car.
Minor car services include changing oil and filters – mainly just to check on the parts in your car. But when it comes to a major service, there is more involved.
You can expect these things to be checked:
Oils and fluids
Brakes, brake fluid and exhaust
Transmission, steering and suspension
External engine belts and hoses
Lights, tyres and tyre pressure
Cooling system and condition of coolant
Air conditioning system
Repacking all wheel bearings.
Don’t be afraid to ask us the list of things that we will do, in your next car service. We encourage this so you can educate yourself on your car’s needs and specifications.
