A logbook service is generally carried out when your car reaches a certain mileage or date, whichever comes first. It is important to stick to your logbook schedule to maintain your car so it runs properly and efficiently. Not doing so can result in problems later in the car’s life.
A logbook service can be either a basic or major service. Usually a car only needs a basic service, however, there are times in a car’s life where integral parts need to be changed.
A major service can entail adjustments and replacements for different parts for your car. It depends on what your logbook says. You may need your timing belts replaced, your timing chains adjusted, new spark plugs or a new water pump. The list goes on and it is best to talk to your mechanic to keep yourself up to date with your car’s major services so you don’t get caught out.
If you are worried that you don’t have a logbook for your car to keep track of your servicing schedule there is no need to worry. Your car’s servicing schedule can also be found in a database so a copy can always be found for your specific vehicle. Although having a logbook for your car is handy in multiple ways.
The logbook is not just a fancy booklet that gets stamped every time you have a service. It tells you everything you need to know about your service schedule and is essentially a record and history for your car. It helps you keep track of your last service, can increase your car’s value if it is serviced regularly and is important for warranty purposes. So it is important to keep your car logbook safe. The best way to do this is to keep it in the glove box of your car.
Logbook services should always be kept up to date for the integrity of your vehicle. This will allow you to prevent major issues later in your car’s life and help you protect yourself and your family. It is important not to skip these services, as their primary goal is safety.
