Every time a vehicle needs to be serviced, the customer comes with a list of questions. Here are some of the most common questions that are asked about a full car service by customers at the Dunedin City workshop.

How often should the car be serviced?

The car needs a full automotive service once every 3 months during the first year. However, soon after that a periodic check every 6 months should be performed. This should be a complete check to handle any issues that may arise.

How often does the oil need to be changed?

Car oil needs to be changed every 5000 kms. However, if the car is running on synthetic oil, it can be changed for every 7500 kms. In order to ensure that the car has sufficient oil, a good automotive mechanic will recommend you check it once a month.

How often should the car wipers be changed?

The car wiper blades need to checked once in 6 months and changed at least once in a year. However, it largely depends on the usage of the vehicle. If the car is not being used a lot, a periodic check should suffice.

Why do the brakes make a screeching noise?

Usually noisy brakes are considered unsafe. In every car, the brakes start making a noise at some point. This noise is actually put in there deliberately as a warning. If such a thing happens you should get the vehicle checked immediately.

These are some of the most common concerns of people during a car service. However, if you have more complicated questions, you should discuss them immediately with the mechanic to find a solution.
