A major car service is a term used to describe an extension of your regular routine car maintenance or basic servicing (also known as basic or minor service).
During a basic service all your key vehicle systems are checked as part of a comprehensive mechanical inspection. However some of these systems also have components which periodically need to be replaced.
Things that a major service can involve include the following, but not are always part of every major service:
What’s included in a major car service is determined by your car’s age, KMs, maintenance history, how you’ve been driving it, how you intend to use it between now and the next service, and any issues that may be present. Rather than just including everything which could end up being expensive, it's best to discuss what should be done so that the most affordable service can be provided.

Why Choose Us
A major car service is a term used to describe an extension of your regular routine car maintenance or basic servicing (also known as a minor service).
During a basic service, all your key vehicle systems are checked as part of a comprehensive mechanical inspection. However, some of these systems also have components which periodically need to be replaced.
The cost of a major car service depends on the type of vehicle, the parts involved, the labour and how long the service will take.
For a major car service this will vary based on what systems are going to be part of that specific service. Whilst it’s possible to define a major service package, it’s almost always universally incorrect. There’s no point changing something that doesn’t need to be changed!
When you see a fixed price for a major service with a fixed list of items, which some places may offer, that price has been set on a number of assumptions and more than likely a certain set of parts and labour that may be completely inappropriate for your vehicle and your specific set of circumstances. Especially if the price is too good to be true!
Generally speaking like most types of servicing the giveaway will be either the behaviour of the car, the service history of the car or a combination of both. For example if you’ve noticed your fuel consumption has been increasing over time (i.e. your car is becoming less economical) then it’s a safe bet that certain parts are worn and need changing.
Likewise if it’s been a long time since you’ve had any work done above your standard routine maintenance, say a couple of years, then it’s more than likely you’re due for some additional work on top of a basic service.
A major service will generally revolve around a basic or minor service, meaning that the engine oil and engine oil filter will be replaced.
In addition to this, depending on the other systems involved within the service the additional servicing work may involve replacing coolant, air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, brake fluid, transmission fluid etc
At CB Auto Service, we take the time to carefully understand your vehicle and plan out the best major service that will give you the most value for your money.
