How do I know what service my Seat needs?
To ensure your Seat is safe, efficient, and operating at peak performance it’ll need to be regularly serviced. The service your car requires will depend on the age of your Seat, the miles covered, as well as your yearly mileage.
Is your Seat under 3 years old and you drive less than 10,000 miles a year?If so then we’d recommend that your Seat is serviced every 12 months or 9,000 miles, whichever occurs first. The repeated stopping and starting can put your vehicle under strain and will require servicing more frequently than a car that travels on longer journeys.
Is your Seat under 3 years old you drive more than 10,000 miles a year? Longer journeys don’t put your engine under as much strain as shorter start/stop motoring. If your traveling long journeys on open roads then we recommend servicing your Seat every 10,000 miles or two years, whichever comes first.
Still unsure of which service your Seat needs? Our service team is here to help so call today for some friendly advice.
