Car Servicing Peterborough

Vital Vehicle Care are your local car servicing Peterborough specialists. An independent, family-run mechanics garage with a friendly and professional team, we can perform regular interim and full car services on almost any make and model of car or van, including premium brands.

What does a car service include and do I need one?

When it comes to what a car servicing includes, essentially, it’s a routine maintenance check for your vehicle which assesses general wear and tear. It also covers a range of system and component checks, adjustments and part replacements. From checking your engine’s fluid levels to ensuring the air conditioning system is fully operational, our professionally trained mechanics will make sure your car is performing as it should.

Why does your car need servicing? It’s important to keep your vehicle in good working order and could save you costs on expensive repairs or replacement parts further down the line. It could also save you the hassle of breaking down or not being able to start the car when you really need to get somewhere.

Full Car Service Peterborough

Our Car Servicing Peterborough is usually recommended every 12 months or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. This varies from car to car, however, so check your owner’s manual for a more precise figure.

This option includes a wider range of car diagnostic checks and replacement parts than an interim service. Below is a list of jobs that are normally carried out:

  • Oil change
  • Oil filter change
  • Cabin filter change
  • Air filter change
  • Fuel filter change (diesel)
  • New spark plugs (petrol)
  • Extensive brake inspection – all brakes will be stripped and cleaned
  • Air conditioning system inspection
  • A thorough check over of the vehicle

All parts fitted are either Genuine or OE (Original Equipment) replacement parts. Please note that we also offer Car Servicing Peterborough on vehicles that are still within the manufacturer’s warranty period.

Benefits of Vehicle Servicing

Higher resale value – cars with a well-documented history are more attractive to potential buyers and tend to hold their value better.

More reliable – regular checks to key components and the replacement of worn parts will detect and eliminate any faults likely to occur, increasing the likelihood of passing an MOT test.

Smoother engine – changing your engine oil and oil filter every year will lubricate moving parts more effectively, helping to maintain fuel efficiency and performance.

Improved braking – brake pads, discs and calipers are inspected to ensure they’re performing at their optimum level.

Interim Car Services

Typically, this will include an oil change, oil filter change and an inspection of the car’s main components, such as the lights, tyres and windscreen wipers.

As mentioned above, you should consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual to determine how often an oil and filter change is required.

We've been going to vital vehicle care for a long while. The whole family takes their cars. My Dad who has stage 4 cancer and is struggling to get around called a little while ago. As we live close by a very nice lady offered to come collect the car for an MOT and even brought the car back to my parents. We just wanted to say how much we appreciate this kind gesture. Your kindness means a lot to us. Thank you. Give this garage as much support as you can!! They have always gone above and beyond.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a car servicing in Peterborough cost?

This very much depends on the car and the cost of replacement components, but our prices are among the best in the Peterborough area. Get in touch with us today to get your free, no-obligation quote.

What’s the difference between an interim and a full service?

An interim service is smaller and less in-depth, making it perfect for regular check-ups in between a full service, which is generally recommended every 12 months.

How often should you service a car?

As a bare minimum, you should get your car serviced once every 12 months, or every 10,000 miles. However, servicing should always be carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

How long does a car service take?

A car service can take anywhere from 90 minutes to four hours to complete. The time it takes will depend on whether you’re having an interim or full service and how many components need assessing. Our car mechanics will be able to provide a time estimate and give you a quote beforehand.

Can a car fail a service?

Unlike an MOT, your car won’t fail a service. Instead, you may just have some recommendations on components that may need replacing.
