This is another name for a basic or essential service, and is usually done every 6 months or 10,000kms. With a standard service you can expect a detailed inspection of your vehicle, fluid maintenance, and tyre-rotation. A standard service is like a routine health check up on your vehicle, so that you can be confident that you’ll be driving safely and at peak performance.
A major service is usually recommended every 3 years, but check your vehicle’s logbook to find the manufacturer’s recommendations.
This type of service is much more extensive than a standard service and will involve transmission maintenance, replacing spark plugs, and maintaining brake and clutch fluid. You can think of a major service as a complete overall inspection of your vehicle that includes in-depth checks on car components that take on significant wear and tear. A major service is the best way to have your vehicle checked and cared for top to bottom.
