Servicing your car

Regularly maintaining your car could save you money over time. More importantly, you will also be making sure that your car is safe on the road.

 

Services we offer:

Plox Motors Ltd offers 3 main types of services, each to suit the specific needs of your vehicle. To enable us to advise on future maintenance, we keep a record of your vehicle’s services history. We have now introduced a 50-point check list, for you to keep, which includes a full tyre report for your vehicle when it has been serviced.

  • Oil service
  • Interim service
  • Full service

 

Why is servicing your car important?

Servicing your car is a vital part of vehicle ownership. It is as important as refuelling your car and gives you piece of mind that your vehicle is in a roadworthy condition. Irrespective of the age or price of your vehicle, a service undertaken by a qualified technician can ensure that your vehicle is safe, reliable and efficient.

 

Here at Plox Motors Ltd, we have on-line access to all vehicle schedules and specifications through the online Autodata Electronic Vehicle Information System.

 

Protecting your warranty

Government legislation passed in 2003 called Block Exemption means that an independent garage can now carry out your car service, so that the warranty is still protected – this now means you no longer need to use a main dealer to do your car service.

 

At Plox Motors Ltd, we use GENUINE car parts of OE (Original Equipment) standard, making sure your warranty is protected at all times. Main dealers may try to influence your decision to stay with them, but the reality is that a car service or car repair with Plox Motors Ltd is just as good, if not better and is always likely to be cheaper than what a main dealer charges.

 

In most cases, main dealers and independent garages use the same car parts suppliers in the UK, so any misleading comments by a main dealer trying to entice you into staying with them are not really warranted. All our car parts are GENUINE approved car parts of OE standard.
