What happens during a Hyundai car service? | Phil Gilbert Hyundai

A regular service is essential for all old and new Hyundai cars. By being proactive with your vehicle’s maintenance, you can detect issues earlier on - potentially saving you money on costly repairs and reducing the risk of something dangerous happening on the road. When you bring your vehicle to us for a Hyundai car service, your Phil Gilbert expert will carry out a number of routine checks.

Wheels and tyres assessment

We will check the pressure of your tyres and ensure wheels are all aligned as they should be. This can prolong the life of your tyres, improve fuel economy and reduce the risk of an accident. Our team will ensure the tread of the tyres reach the legal minimum requirement, and that wheels are set to the optimum position as per your car model’s specifications.

Pollen filter check

Your car’s pollen filter exists to keep the air that flows into the cabin clean, by filtering out pollen, dirt and other contaminants. The more you drive, the dirtier this filter becomes, and it should be replaced at regular intervals. Our mechanics will check the condition of your pollen filter and can recommend if it needs to be replaced. We’ll look out for things like poor airflow, a bad smell and noises that may indicate a blockage.

Steering and suspension

Your steering and suspension systems work together to keep your car under control. Over time, driving causes some wear and tear on these systems, which can cause unstable operation of the vehicle, excessive tyre wear and even loss of steering control. We will check and maintain these systems during your routine service; do let us know if you’re noticing any control issues while driving so we can investigate the source of the problem.

Brake inspection

Brakes are a critical safety feature of your Hyundai, so your service will include a thorough check of these. This encompasses an assessment of the level and condition of brake fluid, as well as a check for any signs of loose or damaged connectors. We’ll also make sure your brake pad thickness complies with the vehicle model specifications, and recommend a replacement if not.

Other essential checks

Overall, the aim of your Hyundai car service is to make sure your vehicle is safe to operate, and that it’s performing at its optimal level. We’ll make sure other components are working as they should, such as your lights, air conditioning system, windscreen wipers and washers, spark plugs and fuel filter.

We’ll check your oil and top it up if necessary. While you’re at your Phil Gilbert Dealership, please feel free to ask any other questions about your vehicle and we’ll be happy to offer our honest, expert advice.
