None of us expect our customers to know everything about cars – that’s our job! Even so, most of us wish they’d pay a little more attention to certain areas when it came to car maintenance. We asked some of our members what they would like their customers to focus on.
- A vehicle maintenance schedule isn’t a suggestion – it really should be taken very seriously. Ignoring that schedule puts you in line for some very expensive damage, so don’t be tempted to skip a service
- Choose your mechanic with care. Not all workshops are equal – some (like MIWA accredited workshops, obviously) can be relied upon to provide superior service with the latest equipment. It’s not a good idea for customers to rely upon their own skills (or advice from Google) either.
- Ignoring a warning light is always dangerous. Many motorists are guilty of this, but the reality is they’re doing their cars a lot of damage: in fact, the car should be examined by a mechanic immediately.
- Changing the oil in your car is non-negotiable.
