What’s included in your service
Your car needs regular servicing to keep it running well.
Services will usually include the following checks:
- Engine oil
- Windscreen washer fluid
- Engine cooling system
- Tyre tread
- Tyre pressure – including the spare tyre
The service for each type of car will be different. Other checks for brake pads or filters, for example, will be looked at if it is recommended by the manufacturer.
On top of the regular service for your vehicle, an annual check for the conversion elements of your WAV should also be carried out. This check will be carried out by our mobility technician and will cover things like the ramp or lift and wheelchair Restraints system to ensure they are working correctly and still meet your needs.
For maintenance or repair of conversion items, such as winches and ramps, etc will be required to book in with our mobility workshop.
Waiting for your car – The length of a service can vary so you may need to organise transport home to avoid a long wait.
Keep a record
Your car’s service book will be stamped after every service. Keep this safe and in good condition as it may be needed in future to prove the car has had regular servicing.
Your tyres – Legally, tyres need to be replaced when the tread depth falls to 1.6mm on 75% of the contact surface.
Spare wheel – Some new cars no longer come with a standard spare wheel. If this applies to your car, make sure you ask what alternative solution has been provided.
Inflation kits – In some cars, an emergency inflation kit is supplied for use with punctures. Once the canister has been used, you should purchase a replacement from ourselves or any motor factor.
If you live in a remote area or somewhere that regularly experiences extreme weather conditions you could consider having snow tyres, chains or socks fitted to your Motability car. However you would need to pay for this yourself.
