How often cars need to be serviced
We recommend your classic sports car should be serviced every 12 months, which is also the guidelines of most car manufacturing companies. However, this varies with different brands and models of cars, and the mileage you do.
It's important to get your car serviced regularly as problems can start to occur or develop at any time, so by taking it in every year, you are keeping on top of it.
There are many different uses of classic cars, for example, some people buy and collect them as a hobby, investment purposes, and others use them as their everyday car. However, we highly recommend you service your classic car more regularly, especially is you use it as your main car to drive around and travelling long distances. However, if you only use your classic sports car on special occasions, or just for show, then you won't need to get it serviced as much. Some car brands even have warning signs of letting them know that their car needs to be serviced, which definitely shouldn't be ignored. Each vehicle has many different requirements, and so does their owners.
If you dont service your car
If you don't get your car serviced, then there is a high chance of legal implications. Driving a car that hasn't been serviced is dangerous for yourself, your passengers and other road users. This is due to the fact that your vehicle could have a problem that you haven't noticed yourself which could possibily develop over time.
Finding the problem early reduces the risk of breakdowns or larger problems occurring in the long run, causing a more expensive bill.
All cars must meet DVSA standards, which is why we have servicing and MOT tests, to reduce the risk of danger on our roads. Servicing your vehicle is also important because it ensures it is safe to drive on the road and doesn't go against DVSA standards. It will also keep your car running on the roads for longer, and make sure it runs smoothly for longer.
You are also more likely to fail your MOT, which can mean very costly bills, especially if you want to sell your car! Here at Maidstone Sports Cars Limited, we get the job done using DVSA standards guideline, so you can be rest assured.
