The Interim package also includes lubrication, top-up of the engine, brake and other fluids to check for any fluid leaks. It includes a wider range of checks and service replacement parts in addition to those carried out during basic services.

 

Full Car Service.   

A full service, also known as an Intermediate or silver service is usually recommended every 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first. It's ideal for drivers doing lower annual mileages who will only have their car  serviced once a year. It includes a wider range of checks and service replacement parts in addition to those carried out during basic services. Some of the services which are included in Full car services are

Major Car service

 

Major car service is the most advanced and detail servicing level which is recommended every 24 months or 24,000 miles. If you have taken full service earlier, than you should go for major service for your next servicing. This package is the most comprehensive service package which includes everything that you get in full service. This service includes replacement of brake fluid and cabin filter. After some point of time, brake fluids can become contaminated, it may no longer be able to stop the car which could have serious problems when driving. Even the clogged cabin filter can cause various problems due to dust and debris, replacing or changing will improve the cabin's air quality.
