The common saying: ‘You don’t appreciate what you’ve got till it’s gone’ is definitely the case with your car. It’s not until you have lost it for a day or two in the garage that you realise how much easier it makes every day living! Without your car you become a burden to your friends and family, relying on them to give you lifts. If you don’t burden your friends and family then you rely on public transport which in honesty isn’t reliable, and waiting around in the British weather isn’t pleasant at all, especially with the recent winter conditions.
How long have you had your car? A couple of years possibly, 5 years or maybe even 10 years or longer. Many of us will run our vehicles until they will no longer go anymore. Racking up hundreds of thousands of miles on the odometer and keep them running until the repairs are no longer economical. However, you would be surprised by the amount of people who wish to continue with the repairs despite how uneconomical they are, reluctant to give up on their trusted friend... now that is loyalty!
LOOK AFTER YOUR CAR AND IT WILL LOOK AFTER YOU
The majority of us will use our vehicle every day, so treat it! Take your loyal companion that helps you every day, for its annual car service *. Taking your car for its annual service is the equivalent to a day at the spa or a day off of work to relax - it will come out running more smoothly and efficiently. Without the annual service & MOT your ‘dependable friend’ could become untrustworthy. If you feel your vehicle cannot guarantee the safety of yourself or those travelling with you, you should take it for a health check at your local garage.
So how much do you really love your car?
* Service schedules are based on the mileage and age of vehicle, whichever occurs first - see your manufacturer’s guide or contact your local garage for details.
