Getting your vehicle serviced regularly helps to ensure your car runs smoothly, maximises your safety and helps you avoid costly repairs in the future. The amount of time your car service will take depends on a variety of factors and having a rough idea of how long a service is going to take will allow you to plan accordingly.
At Bentleigh Automotive, we identify issues before they become major problems, so that our customers have the peace of mind that their car is in working order year-round.
Factors That Can Influence How Long A Car Service Takes
Most car services cover a large range of checks to systems related to safety, reliability and performance. How long your car service will take depends on a number of factors, including your car’s make and model, its age and kilometres travelled. Your car’s log book will state whether you require a major or minor service which will also help you to determine roughly how long your service will take.
Generally, a basic or minor service can take up to two hours, and will likely involve replacing your car’s essential fluids. It will also include safety checks on your car’s lights, breaks, tyres, steering and suspension.
A log book or major service will outlay your service schedule. While most log book service inclusions vary depending on your vehicle, you can expect them to take between two and four hours. They may include checks on a number of systems to ensure you’re driving away in a safe and reliable vehicle.
For more specific service times, check with your mechanic as they will be able to advise you based on your car’s service requirements.
