Car Servicing Northamptonshire


When you own a vehicle, it is your responsibility to ensure that the vehicle is roadworthy and safe to drive, so regular maintenance checks are a must. You can do this by keeping up with your cars recommended service schedule, which is set by the manufacturer who works out how long the vehicle needs between checks to ensure that it is safe and reliable on the road. If the service schedule is not adhered to, the manufactures warranty becomes void.#

If your car is still in warranty, you will be provided with a manufacturer service price which will be bespoke to the model of your vehicle. This price will include payment for any maintenance needed to be done on the car for general wear and tear, however if additional work is needed to be done or any major parts needs to be replaced, then you will be given an additional quote for the unanticipated repairs.

If your car is outside of its original manufactures warranty, then In Town Automotive can offer you one of our specially designed service packages. If you are looking for car servicing in Northamptonshire, we are confident that we will be able to offer a package deal to suit every vehicle!

  • Full Service – Full services includes everything that a basic service covers however with additional checks over more of the vehicles components.
  • Major Service – A major service will include a full service, and the checking and changing of any spark plugs and filters needed. Some maintenance completed for problems spotted in the visual safety inspection may be included in the price of a major service.
  • Manufacturer Service – The price of your manufacturer service will be tailored to your vehicle and will include any wear and tear repairs that your car may need.
