Scheduled Maintenance

Your car’s maintenance program determines the times for scheduled maintenance. It may be reported in either kilometers or time format.

The newest cars usually have a service indicator that tells you when to take your car for scheduled service. Not all car models have a detector, so it is your responsibility to take care of maintenance.

The purpose of periodic maintenance is to keep the car in working order during the service interval and it will save the motorist a longer time. For example, annual maintenance is intended to keep maintenance costs low. Regular maintenance keeps the car in good condition. If maintenance is missed and, for example, the spark plugs break due to a long replacement interval, a much higher cost item is known. Or, for example, the timing belt breaks due to failure to service, which in the worst case will damage the entire engine. Then the cost may be in the thousands of euros.

It is better to perform scheduled maintenance on time rather than save on maintenance.

We always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and the car’s maintenance program when servicing.

 

What is included in the periodic maintenance of the car?

  • Review of maintenance sites in accordance with the maintenance program
  • Checking the brakes
  • Checking the frost resistance of coolants
  • Review of security systems
  • Other measures specified by the manufacturer
  • Changing the oil and oil filters
  • Replacing the fresh air filter
  • Spark plug replacement
  • Replenish other fluids as needed
  • Brake fluid change
  • Replacing the air filter
  • Replacing the fuel filter

Replacement of broken parts if necessary (we always ask for permission for repairs if the need for repairs arises during maintenance)

Scheduled maintenance late or over kilometers?

The scheduled maintenance program comes from the car manufacturer. It is not possible to say with 100% certainty whether the service intervals are defined in the best possible way for the car owner. However, it is reasonable to assume that at least car manufacturers do not want to risk the safety of the owner. In principle, it is not advisable to delay or wait for the kilometers to be exceeded for scheduled maintenance.

If your car still has a factory warranty left, late scheduled service may result in you having to pay if the warranty items are broken. When scheduled maintenance is performed on schedule, repairs covered during the warranty period will usually go to the warranty peak.

If your car is no longer under warranty, then of course late maintenance will not affect who pays. With good luck, you will survive the delay without harm. At its smallest, a fault can be easily corrected in the car, and at worst, even an unchecked timing belt can lead to expensive engine repairs.

 

Can I do scheduled maintenance myself?

Periodic maintenance measures usually require more expertise than annual maintenance. Especially if you want your car’s warranty to remain valid after periodic maintenance, you should have it serviced by us.

 

Periodic maintenance duration

It takes 2-4 hours to perform scheduled maintenance.

 

Periodic maintenance price

The price of scheduled maintenance usually varies between about 200 and 500e.
