Most car owners like to distance themselves from the dealership service centre because of the high cost and unsolicited upsells. And rightly so. This is why it is wise to bring your car to our locally owned garage where you can get the best service at the lowest price.
At Chigwell Motor Works, we have the tools and skills required to provide dealership-level service. We know what’s best for your vehicle and use only OEM parts for the service or repair work. Whether your car is brand new or has already seen its best days, we give it the care and attention that it deserves.
Here’s everything that a basic car service includes
Oil change is the most important part of the routine service and should be done every 6000 miles or once a year — whichever comes first. And rest assured that we will pick the right oil grade for your car as recommended by the manufacturer. With the right oil grade, the engine will perform as intended and last longer.
Fluid and Filter Change
Your car uses a lot of fluids and filters to prevent wear and tear. However, these fluids wear out too and filters get clogged over time. Therefore, with oil change, it is important to change the air filter, oil filter and cabin filter. We also check the level of coolant, brake fluid, transmission fluid, etc. and top off or flush as per the service manual or the condition of the fluid.
We will inspect your car using an OBD scanner to detect issues with the O2 sensor, fuse, relay, steering module, AC, lights, fuel pump, spark plugs, engine components, etc. This allows our mechanic to catch problems while they are still easier and inexpensive to fix. In case there’s something that requires immediate repairs, our mechanic will explain it to you and recommend what’s best for your car.
Wheel Alignment and Balancing
Wheel alignment is vital to your tyres’ life. Some drivers speed through potholes or mistakenly hit the kerb in the parking lot, throwing front wheels out of alignment. As a result, the vehicle tends to pull to either side of the road, also causing uneven tyre wear. A wheel alignment & balancing job is highly recommended – at least once a year; also, it pays for itself by delaying the need to replace your tyres.
