You can be assured that at our Cardiff based service garage can perform anything and everything you might need performing on your vehicle.
One of the advantages of using an independent garage service is they are far more likely to point out any oil, coolant, or fluid leaks they find, and give you the option of having it remedied before further problems arise.
Basic Car Servicing
New cars, normally up to three years old, have to have car servicing carried out by a main dealer to ensure the guarantee. However, once out of warranty, getting your car service from a good independent garage can often be a third or more, less expensive than a main agent. If you live in the Cardiff area of South Glamorgan, there are some excellent, long established independent car servicing garages to choose from including our team here at Gary Pinkard.
The basic service, usually 6,000 miles, will cover the changing of oil and filters, checking fluid levels for coolant and brakes, and checking the cam belt tension and wear. Checking engine, clutch and gearbox operation, brake pad wear, and visual checking of hoses and hydraulic lines.
While modern cars are far more reliable than 30 years ago, they have a nasty habit of luring people into a false sense of security. All those dashboard warning lights which not only tell you a door is open, or a bulb has blown; but that your coolant levels are low, or your oil is below minimum. Fixing it when the warning light glows, is often too late, the lamp frequently signalling the prelude to a much larger, more costly problem. Regular car servicing can avoid these problems, and highlight further potential problems which can be averted with timely replacement of a wearing part.

Regular garage servicing at an independent garage in Cardiff, South Glamorgan, will minimise your chance of a roadside breakdown when out with the kids. You can also recoup a lot of your servicing outlay. When you sell a car with a full service history, complete with bills for any repairs carried out, you can ask top dollar for the vehicle. Often this will mean obtaining £1,000 or more, than for a similar car with no service history. So, if you require further information regarding our car garage Cardiff, contact our mechanics today.
