Excel Automotives Car Servicing For All Of Chesterfield & Sheffield South

6 Month Service

Perfect for the high or low mileage driver or just before or just after a lengthy trip. If you do particularly high or very low mileage especially short journeys you should opt for the 6 month service in between your annual servicing.

Why Do Low Mileage Cars Need The 6 Month Car Servicing?

No doubt you are curious as to why you need to service your car every 6 months when you do much less miles than the average car driver. Surely it’s the other way round?. It’s all to do with how petrol and diesel engines work. The internal combustion engine is not fully efficient until the engine is at full working temperature. When it’s not the mixture is not fully burned leaving behind carbon deposits that accumulate very quickly restricting your engines performance and economy.

Which Parts To Use

It’s only right you choose which parts go on your car. You can choose either genuine manufacturers parts or original equipment manufacturers replacement parts (OEM) and your garage should do the rest.

What’s The Difference Between OEM & Genuine Service Parts?

You should be offered which car parts are used on your car. There are only 2 options:

Genuine Parts

new genuine volvo parts

Genuine parts are the exact same parts your car manufacturer used when assembling your vehicle. No matter if your car was manufactured by Volvo, Mazda or Toyota, they are manufactured to the exact or improved specification using the exact same or improved materials.

(OEM) Parts

new ordinary equipment manufacturers parts

Ordinary equipment manufactured (OEM) service parts are manufactured by third parties to the same design using similar materials as your cars manufacturer used. They may or may not last as long as genuine parts. They may or may not perform quite as well but they are usually much less expensive then genuine service parts.
