Why do I need a service?

Safety: Regular servicing ensures your vehicle operates as it should, allowing our specialists to identify dangerous faults early on before they become worse. Many accidents can be avoided by ensuring your car is in peak condition.

Savings: Even the slightest faults can become large (costly) issues. By servicing your car regularly, we can spot any problems early before they progress into something serious, saving you time and money.


Longevity: Stay on the road longer with a regular service. Keeping your car in optimal condition ensures you get the most from your vehicle. Increase your car’s longevity by giving it the attention it requires.


Reliability: Don’t risk breaking down or failing your MOT due to a skipped service. Service your car regularly, and it gives you peace of mind knowing your car will work when you need it. Save yourself time, stress, and money.

How do I know if my service is due?

Every car has a different servicing schedule identified in your car’s service book. However, as a standard, we recommend:

– A full service every 12 months or 12,000 miles
– A major service every 24 months or 24,000 miles

If you’ve got a modern car, it usually has a built-in service alert system which notifies you when the next service is due. This notification usually appears on the car’s dashboard. But, if you’re still unsure about your servicing schedule, speak to our team to figure out your best options.

What happens during a service? What do we check/replace?


Lights & Visibility: Your car’s lighting system is checked for faults and tested for optimal performance. All windows, mirrors, registration plates, and wipers are inspected for defects or weak points.


Vehicle Interior: Internal controls such as your horn, hazard lights, seat belts, and air con are checked for function. Your car’s diagnostic system is checked for any highlighted faults.


Steering & Suspension: Your entire drive system is checked, covering wheel joints, gaiters, and bearings. Our experts also check your front & rear shock absorbers alongside your wheel alignment.


Braking System: A comprehensive check is performed on your braking system, including discs, pads, and surrounding mechanisms.


Under Bonnet: Your car’s engine is thoroughly checked for faults and leaks. We replace your air & oil filters, drive belts, and spark plugs if required.


Tyres: All tyres (including your spare wheel) are checked for tread and pressure. Any weaknesses or corrosion is identified on your wheels.


Under Vehicle: Your car’s trays are removed, and your transmission is checked for faults, leaks, and corrosion. All fuel lines are inspected before draining your oil and replacing the trays.


Final Checks: Lastly, we inspect your brake fluid and antifreeze levels before refilling your engine with oil. Your service history is then updated.

How will I be kept informed on the progress of my service?

At Shires Garage Taunton, we keep you in the loop during every stage. Once the initial inspection of your vehicle is completed, we will contact you to discuss our findings. Together we figure out the best plan of action for you and your car.

No work starts on your vehicle without receiving the green light from you first; you’re kept in the loop from the minute you enter our garage and stay in control.
