Nowadays, car owners keep their vehicles a lot longer than before so vehicle service costs play an important factor in the long-term expense of your car. If youâ€™re in the market for a new car this needs to be factored in when planning to purchase a new car.
Some studies show that servicing can cost up to 4% of the purchase price of a new car after 5 years so this expense needs to be budgeted for. But donâ€™t get frightened off – regularly servicing from a local automotive centre, like Auto Super Shoppe Mt Wellington, will ensure that you get value for money, with fixed price servicing – no nasty surprises- and will offset the need for larger repair bills.
Regular servicing is recommended every 12 months or 10,000 kms – whichever comes first so you will need to factor your expected driving distances and how long you plan to keep the car into any purchase decision you make.
While itâ€™s easy to budget for servicing, car repairs can be a different issue altogether particularly if your new car isnâ€™t brand new. Whether only a couple of years old or not the team at Auto Super Shoppe Mt WellingtonÂ recommend bringing in any car you are considering buying and getting the team to undertake a pre-purchase inspection.
