Servicing

service picMany car owners service their vehicle every year or every 12,000 miles. Servicing your car proactively maintains it, reducing the risks of faults or breakdown. Even if it is irregular, servicing your car can help maintain it’s value. Blackbrook offer full services as well as interim and oil services.

An interim service usually takes place in between your full service or 12,000 miles and is to make sure that your car is ready for the change in seasons and upcoming travel.

An oil service from Blackbrook is a great supplement between services, when preparing a long journey or just for peace of mind. It includes:

  • Changing oil and filter
  • Checking essential items such as tyres, battery, wipers and lights.
  • Topping up essential fluids like brake, windscreen wash and power steering fluids if required.

Tyres

tyresBlackbrook understands that when a motorist has a problem with a tyre they want a quality service, value for money, expert advice and the convenience of a local solution.

In recognition that the range of tyres available today can be quite bewildering, our tyre experts will guide you through your tyre choices to make sure that you get the right tyre for you and your car from the extensive range of tyre brands we have in stock.

Brakes

We have brake specialists who are fully trained and committed to maintaining your brakes in an expert and cost effective manner.

Regular brake checks are an important part of any vehicle preventative maintenance plan. Brake checks can identify a problem before it begins to impact your braking efficiency, thus providing an opportunity to restore the effectiveness of your vehicle’s braking system to its intended operating performance. The effects of a sudden brake failure can be devastating and in the event of an accident attributed to faulty brakes, the consequences of not maintaining an effective braking system could result in prosecution. Your vehicle will also fail its MoT test if braking efficiency is below specification.

Exhaust Systems

exhaustExhausts have four main functions: to control noise, to direct exhaust fumes away from passengers, to improve the performance of the engine and to improve fuel consumption.

An exhaust is a series of pipes that links the engine to a silencer and a catalytic converter.

Exhausts can corrode from both the inside and outside. How long your exhaust lasts depends on how far and how often you drive your car rather than the length of time it has been fitted. Vehicles used for short trips around town tend to corrode their exhausts in a much shorter time and distance than cars used predominately for long journeys.
