All About Car Servicing and MOT’s

Every year the price of a new car continues to go up and therefore becomes less affordable. More and more people have been taking an option of either buying an older car or deciding to keep their current vehicle for longer periods of time before trading it in on a newer model. As every car owner in the UK knows, it is paramount to keep a full service history (FSH) on his or her vehicle. This is true even for new model cars. The FSH record can be especially handy when the vehicle reaches the age that it needs to go through the scheduled servicing, whether that’s a car service in Swindon, or an MOT London, servicing and MOT’s are legally essential to keep your car on the road.

Sometimes it may seem easier to omit making a FSH entry, but fate has a way of working against us. That omitted item will most likely be just the entry the MOT inspector will look for when performing the test. It takes a few moments to keep the FSH information complete and up to date and it can save a lot of justification and aggravation later on.

Keeping a vehicle in good operating condition does more than comply with the transportation rules and regulations. Taking proper care of a vehicle through regular maintenance and needed repairs will add quality of life to the vehicle and save the owner potential fines and added expenses should the vehicle fail a MOT Oxford.

Mass transportation is a wonderful modern way to travel to and from work. There are fewer vehicles on the road and less toxic exhaust released into the air. However, not everyone lives or works near the trains and buses. Commuters are faced with choosing between driving to a car park to use a train or to drive all the way to and from work. From every angle, people still need vehicles and those vehicles still need to be maintained. The very best avenue to maintain a fully operational vehicle is to start from the day of purchase.
