Its September so spring has now arrived so it’s a good time to think about cleaning the car. I don’t mean the outside however but the engine. Regular servicing will make the vehicle run better, improve fuel efficiency and with the increase in petrol costs of late surely its worth a thought. Plus it runs cleaner so is good for the environment. We recommend you service your vehicle once a year or every 10 000km’s.
I’d also like to bring your attention at this time of the year the “cabin air filter”. Most modern vehicles have these fitted. A cabin air filter reduces the amount of harmful contaminants entering into the vehicle via the heating ventilation and air conditioning systems. Pollen, fungus spores, dirt and dust pass into the passenger cabin and can trigger asthma, allergies, headaches and more.
It is recommended to replace every two years. During the months of September & October there will be a promotion on cabin air filters. Ryco the supplier of this product is offering lots of prizes – Dr Dre Headphones, Dyson Products, Spotify gift cards and 3 x $1000 Flight Centre Travel Vouchers. So book in for a service and if yours needs replacing you could enter the draw to be a winner.
Planning on heading away next school holidays? Term finishes Friday 28 September. Not too sure when the vehicle was last serviced, just check your service label on the windscreen. Make sure its up to date if not give us a call so you can have a trouble free trip.
With this thought in mind remember December is always the busiest month of the year for us so if it does need a service perhaps think November and do it a little earlier so one thing off the list.
Safe motoring from the Team at Balmoral Auto Repairs
