I Need My Car Serviced, What Will It Cost?

Your car and your home are two of the biggest purchases most of us will make in life, and with home prices skyrocketing, a car is more likely to be owned by most Australians these days. Like a house needs repairs to keep it in tip top condition, so does our vehicles, not only to keep them on the roads, but to safeguard you, your passengers and other drivers. Servicing your car is important to keep it performing at its best, by skipping a service you not only void your car warranty, you could be causing serious damage to your car.

What Should A Car Service Cost?

Unfortunately… this isn’t an easy question to answer, it depends on your car, when it was manufactured, how many kilometres you’ve travelled and if there are issues, the parts that will need to be replaced. Whether it’s new or old, having your car serviced is something that needs to be done, it’s the only way to extend the lifespan of your vehicle.

Toyota was announced as the most popular passenger car to drive here in Australia for 2017, let’s use their Toyota Corolla as the example, the manufacturer recommends that if you own this car, you need to have it serviced every 10,000km or 6 months, whichever comes first. The intervals set are from years of experience and testing, pushing engines to the extreme and setting the maintenance needed to protect the life of your car.

Each car manufacturer has a set of guidelines you need to follow to certify your car warranty is valid, you need to have your car serviced at their recommended intervals.
