Common Signs that Your Vehicle is in Need of Service

You probably don't have to be told that these show-stopping issues mean you need to bring your car to the service center immediately: Smoke coming from the engine compartment, fluid leaks and burning smells are all signs that something has gone very wrong - or will at any moment. Other signs of less-critical maintenance issues include the check engine light. This light merely indicates that there is a problem. What the problem actually is could be anything. Our service team can analyse the check engine light further to see what your vehicle is complaining about and help you fix it. Finally, any strange, new noises your vehicle makes indicate a possible problem. Common noises you might hear include a loud squealing coming from the belts, knocking from the engine itself, scraping noises from suspension or steering issues and squeaky brakes. If you experience any of those, our service team recommends you bring your vehicle to us right away, so we can address the problem before it gets any worse.
