CAR SERVICING

Here at Wardie Motors we offer full and interim services. Using highly skilled local technicians and according to all manufacturers warranty standards and specifications, you can be assured that your car is in safe hands. Interim car services should be carried out every 6 months or 6,000 miles. This will keep your car safe and roadworthy in between full services. A full car service should be carried out approximately every 12,000 miles or 12 months to keep your car maintained correctly. It is important to have a full service carried out as a skilled technician could detect any damage early and avoid further unforeseen costs/damage to your car as a result. It is unlikely that you will be able to spot any potential problems yourself.
