Halfords Autocentres have now lowered the costs of their car servicing for those models that have engines which are smaller and more fuel efficient.
This move is a reflection on the increasing popularity of vehicles that are more economical and the owners of these cars that have 1300cc engines, or less, will benefit from Halfords introducing a new ‘entry level price’ for all the vehicles they service.
For less than £80, the leading chain of independent garages can deliver a full service on any model or male of car and give you the kind of quality workmanship usually found at dealerships. This is fully supported by 12,000 mile or 12 month guarantee.
Halfords Autocentres’ Rory Carlin said: “Rising fuel prices and the recession have driven up demand for cars with smaller engines, whilst also fuelling a rise in the number of people skipping essential car maintenance in an attempt to save money.
“Ignoring or putting off servicing is a false economy because it increases the risk of potential damage to a vehicle and the likely repair costs to rectify it. We believe our new price structure makes doing the right thing for your car even better financial sense.”
The owners of cars with small engines are not the only ones to benefit from the introduction of the new entry-level price. The cost of servicing for larger vehicles, with more powerful engines, has also been reduced as part of the realignment.
The SMMT (Society for Motor Manufacturers & Traders) has reported strong growth in the both the mini and supermini segments of the new car market throughout 2013 – with the Ford Fiesta being the best-selling model for the year-to-date.
This popularity is mirrored by the used car market – with small and frugal cars now in short supply which has in turn pushed up their values.
Rory Carlin added: “We believe that value and excellent service are not mutually exclusive.
