Re: Service every year, or when trip computer says...

Picture the scene.

Little old lady buys a Clio brand new - only does 2,000 miles p.a. should she only get it serviced every 6 years?

It's a false economy to skimp on servicing, oil & filters have a limited service life, and beyond that point, other components will start to suffer, either temporarily (if you are lucky), or permanently (if you are not).

I don't know if your car is still under warranty, but if it is, it probably isn't now...


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
