Between service safety checks

In the current financial climate, itís becoming increasingly more expensive to run the average 4x4. This is leading to people stretching their service intervals out on vehicles no longer under warranty, in an effort to economise.

Whilst the modern engineering and lubricants are capable of going for longer between services, the safety aspect of servicing is also being overlooked.

We do not advocate stretching or skipping services as the service is intended to keep an eye on everything and prevent any safety or reliability issues from occurring. However, we also appreciate that times are hard and some compromises need to be made.

To that end we have introduced a between service checkover, to ensure that the safety and reliability aspects do not get overlooked, without stretching the wallet too badly.

The checkover takes approximately 1.25 hours and can be done whilst you wait. We will check all the oils and fluid levels. Steering joints and wheel bearings. Front and rear brake components and tyre pressures and tread depth. Lights, wiper blades and Drive belts. Drive line joints and Suspension components.

The basic checkover costs £75.00 + VAT. A Total of £88.13.

We will flag up any problems or potential future problems and discuss them with you.

Any additional work, parts, oils etc will be discussed with the customer and charged in addition to the checkover

This way you can spread the costs a little, without running the risk of driving a dangerous vehicle.

"Chrysler has outlined some of the line items on their ambitious $3 billion plan to bolster the fuel efficiency of the company's engines and vehicles.

Frank Klegon, executive vice president for product development, said the company pushed ahead with the investments on the assumption that fuel economy standards were going to get tougher.

The technology behind the push - from diesel engines, to cylinder deactivation and new lightweight axles - reflects Chrysler's continuing dependence on Mercedes-Benz for new technology and technical assistance. Except for the hybrids in the new lineup, Mercedes-Benz had a hand in several of the technical initiatives Chrysler announced, Chrysler officials acknowledged." Read the entire article at
