Car Service Inclusions & Price
How much does a car service cost?
"How much will my car service cost?" is easily the most common inquiry we receive. It is also the hardest inquiry to answer accurately without having first inspected the car. You see every make and model of car is different in terms of engine oil specification and quantity, oil filters and air filters vary, spark plugs can be different even in the same engine! Add to that mix the fact every person drives their car differently in terms of the typical traffic conditions they experience, how far they typically drive, and what load they may be carrying or towing. All these factors and more will affect what is required to service your car to keep it safe and reliable between services and thus the service cost will vary from car to car and service to service. That being said we also understand you need an approximate cost to allow for, so we have listed below our service inclusions and aproximate cost for a typical car service. From time to time there will be parts that require replacing due to wear or damage that are not covered in a typical service. Any additional work required to keep your car safe and reliable will be quoted for your approval first so there are no surprises.
