A car service is a series of maintenance procedures carried out at a set time interval or after the vehicle has travelled a certain distance. The service intervals are specified by the vehicle manufacturer in a service schedule and some modern cars display the due date for the next service electronically on the instrument panel.
The completed services are usually recorded in a service book which is stamped by the service centre upon completion of each service. A complete service history usually adds to the resale value of a vehicle.
At Slough Auto Centre we understand that servicing is fundamental in vehicle maintenance hence why we offer the following 3 service levels. Basic, Full and Major.
Our servicing packages are designed to suit all budgets and requirements. Should any faults be found we will notify you of the likely cost of repairs before carrying out any work, if you wish to not have the work carried out we will advise you of the repairs required for future reference. In addition, we will stamp your vehicle's service book and give you an itemized break down of the work you had carried out. With trained technicians, modern diagnostic equipment and guaranteed parts and labour Slough Auto Centre should be your first choice for all servicing and repairs.
Our Basic service price starts from only £69. This price includes replacement of engine oil, oil filter and 44-point safety check. Oil filters require changing as they become clogged with debris over time. In order to ensure maximum efficiency, oil and oil filters should be changed at regular intervals. A basic service is ideal if you either do low mileage 6,000 - 10,000 miles per year or do very high mileage 20,000 miles plus per year and you use it as an intermediate service in between your annual full and major service.
Our Full service price starts from only £89. This price includes replacement of engine oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter (if fitted) and 44-point safety check. The modern fuel filter is fundamental in the smooth running, economy and performance of your car and thus should be replaced every year where applicable. A full service should be carried out every 12,000 - 15,000 miles or every 2nd year in a 3-year cycle
Our major service price starts from only £129. This price includes replacement of engine oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, pollen filter, spark plugs, antifreeze, brake fluid and 44-point safety check. This service covers all filtration and fluids. A major service should be carried out either every 30,000 - 36,000 miles or every 3 years latest as its imperative to have the antifreeze and brake fluid changed at these intervals.
The average mileage in the UK is between 12,000 - 15,000 miles per year hence why we recommend the following 3-year cycle.
Anything below 10,000 miles per year is classed as low mileage, whilst anything up to 15,000 miles per year is now classed as standard. Therefore, the following service plan would be suitable.
Year 1 - Basic service

Year 3 - Major service
Anything above 18,000 miles per year is falling in to the category of high mileage. Therefore, the following service plan is more suited to you.
