Frequently asked questions
When does my car need servicing?
Every car has different servicing intervals. To avoid confusion please refer to your service manual or contact your main dealer.
Is the servicing my responsibility?
Yes, you must ensure the car is serviced at its allotted mileage. Failure to do so will result in a charge being issued to you for invalidating the warranty.
Where do I take it for servicing?
Kwikfit, ATS, Halfords or your nearest main dealer (e.g. for a Ford vehicle, contact a Ford dealer etc). See overleaf.
Who pays the bill?
CA Cars will cover the cost of your service but the garage must get authorisation from us before any work is carried out.
Are my tyres covered?
Yes but for general wear and tear only. Please use Kwik Fit or ATS Euromaster for this service.
