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 you’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 don’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 it’s easy to budget for servicing, car repairs can be a different issue altogether particularly if your new car isn’t brand new. Whether only a couple of years old or not the team at Auto Super Shoppe Mt Wellington recommend bringing in any car you are considering buying and getting the team to undertake a pre-purchase inspection.
