This is a very comprehensive annual service to keep your car safe and efficient on the road.
Carried out in line with manufacturers’ recommendations and using original or approved parts, your car will run through a thorough safety check with lubricants and filters replaced.
Any work which is identified outside the service will be reported to you in our health check report but will not be undertaken without your authorisation.
This is a 6-month service/check designed for high mileage car users or where the manufacturer recommends more frequent checks. This service helps maintain your vehicle and prevents unforeseen faults. Included are an oil and filter change along with a selection of essential checks.
Designed to ease the pain of regular service costs, the GMP AutoCare service plan spreads the cost of designated services over a period of your choice. You can even transfer unused balances to a new car – ultimate flexibility.
Please call the support centre for more information and a quote.
After 3 years all cars in the UK will require an MOT certificate by law. An MOT at GMP AutoCare can be added for just £39 when you a book a car service with us.
Vehicle Health Check
To ensure that your vehicle is safe on the road GMP AutoCare carries out a Vehicle Health Check each time your vehicle is serviced. This provides essential feedback for you in our purpose-built report so that you are aware of any safety issues on wearing and structural parts of your vehicle together with an estimation of when they should be addressed by. It may be appropriate for our Support centre to rebook the vehicle to organise the work.
In addition to your Service, the Manufacturer also recommends the following Maintenance operations are carried out when due. These can be included in your Service at the discounted rates shown.
Brake Fluid Change
Brake fluid deteriorates through absorbing moisture, reducing braking efficiency and in extreme circumstances brake failure. The manufacturer, therefore, recommends the replacement of brake fluid at 2-year intervals, this consists of full fluid replacement and brake bleeding.
Fuel Treatment Only
Roadside Emission testing is now in full force. This allows random testing on any vehicle by a Police Officer to test emissions on a vehicle, if a vehicle is found to have excess prescribed emission levels it may be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice.
As your servicing dealer, we recommend that an engine flush and fuel treatment are carried out the same time as your service. The engine flush works by clearing all the sludge from the engines oil ways, a fuel treatment is then added, cleaning all fuel injection areas from harmful contamination and build-up of deposits. Furthermore, in most cases it has been found to improve both fuel consumption and performance.
When extreme temperatures are near, it is very important to make sure that the cars antifreeze/summer coolant strength is correct. Changing the antifreeze can make a big difference in the engines health and proper functioning since failures in this area could seriously damage it and be extremely expensive to repair.
Air Conditioning Service and Cleansing
Over a 12 month period, air conditioning systems can lose up to 50% of their efficiency. Bacteria and spores may also build up in the ducting system and in extreme cases, this bacteria can cause Legionnaires Disease, more routinely it causes ‘musty’ smell in your car. The Air Conditioning Service and Cleansing work by cleaning the system, removing bacteria build-up. This is extremely efficient and leaves a pleasant odour.
Wheel Tracking Check
Abnormal/uneven tyre wear? Tracking can easily be affected by potholes and mounting the kerb, the end result being uneven tyre wear and the replacement of tyres prematurely (additional expense for you) to help avoid this it is important to have your tracking checked on a regular basis.
