Where as a cheap “quick lube” just changes the oil and filter, a full service also inspects many items to ensure trouble-free motoring between services, such as belts and radiator hoses, brake linings and batteries.
Left unattended, these can cause costly and unnecessary roadside failures. Brake fluids and antifreeze conditions, if left to deteriorate, will cause serious internal corrosion failures, once again expensive and unnecessary.
Dirty transmission and power steer fluids will cause sticking valves and premature failures.
Preventative maintenance servicing is the answer to reliable and cost effective motoring.
