There are a variety of reasons that justify servicing your car on a regular basis.

From performance reasons to safety reasons and everything in between, there are various reasons to ensure that your car is serviced on a regular basis. Read on to find out more about seven of those reasons…

1. Better power output

With more maintenance and better care, comes better performance. If you change your oil and filters on a regular basis, you will in turn prolong the life of your vehicle’s engine and its overall lifespan. Changing the oil and filters of a vehicle prevents dirt, dust and sludge from entering the engine and creating potentially major problems.

2. Better grip and handling

Additionally, a log book service also presents the chance to check a vehicle’s vital handling components, including the tyres and brakes. In a service, the vehicle’s tyre tread is checked and the tyres can be changed if need be. The same applies to brake parts, in particular the brake pads. In turn, this will also play a part in increasing a vehicle’s grip, traction and responsiveness in addition to its wet weather performance.

3. Safety benefits

Not only are the performance benefits of looking after a car clear, but the same reasons also create a safer drive. A service will generally also encompass checking safety components such as the tyres, brakes and suspension. After all, your tyres are the only contact points a vehicle has with the road, whilst brakes are the only thing that actually stops a vehicle when it’s going.

In addition, cars require a roadworthy certificate to be legally registered and/or sold in Queensland.

4. A better driving experience

In addition to performance and safety maintenance, if one looks after other parts of their vehicle such as the air conditioning and electronic components, it is more likely that you will have a comfortable drive.

5. Save time

You will also be able to save time in the long run by staying on top of your vehicle’s maintenance, as you will be more likely to prevent large and inconvenient issues from occurring which may put your car out of service for days or even weeks.

EA Performance also offers mobile mechanic services across the entire Gold Coast area, saving you the hassle of needing to drive your car to and from a service centre and allowing you to go about your day with minimal inconvenience.

6. More efficient fuel economy

Another benefit of regular logbook services is that the reduced wear and tear on a vehicle’s engine will gradually increase its fuel economy as it ages in comparison to a car that does not undergo regular maintenance.

With better fuel economy comes less trips to the fuel pumps, and thus less expenditure on refuelling your vehicle. You are also putting less strain on the environment as a result of increased fuel economy and less toxic fumes being emitted from the exhaust.

7. Higher resale value

This one is a very simple equation. The better you look after your car through servicing and repairs in addition to general care, the more it would be worth if it were to be sold. The better a car’s mechanical history is, the less likely it is to run into the issues which come with a car ageing at a certain stage in its life.

In the end, it is highly recommended that you perform auto services on your vehicle on a regular basis, as instructed by your mechanic. Not only does it provide a safer ride, but a friendly service can also be the key to a higher level of performance and a more efficient driving experience.
