The engine draws air from the air filter. If the filter is blocked, it restricts air flow, which leads to higher fuel consumption. The air filter is checked during servicing and replaced if necessary.


The vehicle’s engine oil is drained and replaced with every service, which ensures in minimum friction in the engine. This leads to lower fuel consumption.




1) Declining Brake Performance; over time, brake components begin to deteriorate, which impacts their ability to come to a smooth halt.

2) Leaks; oil and coolant leaks may not always be obvious, however they do get reported during servicing, which can prevent engine damage.

3) Premature Tyre Wear; either caused by wheel alignment, suspension issues, or incorrect tyre pressures. You will save money if this is detected early.




When the car is started frequently and is mainly driven short distances, the battery can lose its capacity and power much quicker than usual. 

To avoid this, an occasional long drive will help the battery to stay healthy




a) Over-inflated tyres can reduce steering and brake performance, which is a safety hazard!

b) In hot weather, if tyre pressures are too low, they will generate more heat and wear prematurely

c) Tyre wear and tyre pressures should be checked monthly

d) Tyres can wear unevenly, and rotating the tyres from front to rear can even out where they’re worn




If you're thinking of buying a used car, here are some important questions to ask the seller:

What is the service history? Where was it being serviced? Have there been any repairs? Eg, to brakes? How old are the tyres? What sort of driving has it done - city driving or country driving? Are there any issues outstanding on the car? Has the vehicle been in any accidents, and what was the damage?

Every car owner must monitor the temperature gauge, especially in warm weather. 

Most cars will operate half-way between the hottest and coldest readings. If the temperature gauge rises above half-way towards the hotter end, there is a likelihood that there is a problem with the cooling system.

NEVER drive the vehicle if the temperature gauge is high. 




 Our cars are pretty smart because they help to keep us SAFE! One important safety feature is the Electronic Stability Control (ESC).

🔵This system prevents the risk of skidding or loss of control of the vehicle when changing direction suddenly, particularly at a fast speed.
🔵 It detects when there has been a change in terrain (i.e, dirt road to bitumen) and helps to keep the driving stable.
A light will appear on the dashboard when this system is activated.

In extreme heat, the temperature under the bonnet can double!

This means the engine can easily overheat, if the lubrication system (i.e. oil) and cooling system are not at their optimum condition.
