If you’re in search of a vehicle service in Dunedin City, then give Auto Tuning & Electrical a call. As part of the Auto Super Shoppe group, you know we only have the very best when it comes to staff, parts and services.

A vehicle service is an essential component of stopping our car from suddenly breaking down on us. Unfortunately, many people think that because they’ve had their WoF, then a vehicle service isn’t a necessity. Some people may find it surprising that the two aren’t the same, and having a Warrant of Fitness doesn’t mean you can skip on car servicing.

Look at it this way; a WoF is simply a way to make sure your car isn’t a danger to others on the road for at least the next 6 months. It’s a quick check up of the major systems and components of your car, but it doesn’t go into too much depth.

Vehicle service in Dunedin City looks into your vehicle more systematically, identifying little problems that could turn into big problems in the future. And of course, as we all know, the bigger the problem, the bigger the bill. Finding out through a vehicle servicing that your brake pads are wearing down and have to be replaced soon, at least gives you time to budget and save for the repairs. If you’re simply driving along and waiting until your car fails its Warrant, then you’ll suddenly have a huge invoice in the mail.

How often you should go for vehicle servicing depends on the age, condition and yearly kilometres of your car. If your car is over ten years old or you do more than 10,000 kms a year, then ideally, you should be booking in for a vehicle service in Dunedin City every 6 months. A younger model or infrequent use, then once a year should be fine for a comprehensive car servicing.

Even basic car servicing can make a huge difference. A basic service will usually include an oil and filter change, a brake check, fluid change (washer, anti-freeze etc) and anywhere up to a dozen other crucial component checks.

So if you need a vehicle service in Dunedin City, you know where to come!
