What is the difference between an Interim Service and a Full Service?

A Full Service is ideal for an annual maintenance programme for your car and recommended every 12,000 miles/12 months – whichever is sooner.

Some manufacturers may recommend more frequent checks. Interim Servicing is ideal for vehicles used for short, mainly urban journeys or for those who wish to service vehicles doing very high mileage more regularly. An Interim Service every 6,000 miles/6 months helps keep your car safe and roadworthy between full services.

Why are there different types of engine oil?

Because not all engines are the same! A growing number of manufacturers specify that an enhanced “specialist oil” will optimise the engines performance. Croft Auto Centre will recommend an oil equivalent to the manufacturer’s specification.

Furthermore, in some cases you can choose to upgrade your oil from semi-synthetic to “specialist”. Speak to your Croft Auto centre Technician to confirm the right oil for your car.
