Knowing which car service your vehicle needs isn’t always easy. Interim Car Service An interim car service is carried out every six months and is designed predominantly for high mileage vehicles or when more frequent checks are recommended by the manufacturer. This type of car service usually includes oil and filter change as well as a wide variety of checks designed to prevent unforeseen faults.

Full Car Service A full car service is carried out every 12 months or according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. This car service is generally more comprehensive and will include an engine oil and oil filter change and a pollen filter change (if fitted). It will also include checks on most parts of the vehicle including tyres, car steering, brakes, exhausts and suspension. Having a full service once a year will help identify any faults before they become too expensive or even un-repairable.

Major Car Service A major car service will usually be carried out every two to three years (depending on manufacturer's recommendations) and includes everything covered in interim and full car services, but also replaces parts recommended to be replaced by the manufacturer which may include hydraulic fluids.

If you are unsure as to which car service your vehicle requires, contact your local Unipart Car Care centre where they will be happy to advise you.

All Unipart Car Care Centres offer a nationwide guarantee meaning that no matter where you are in the country, if something goes wrong after having work carried out at a Unipart Car Care Centre, you can take it to be repaired at another without charge.
