  • A regularly serviced car will serve you well

    Changing a tire

    It's hard to overstate the importance of having your car regularly serviced. At LG Car Sales we try to stock only quality used cars, but we do see some poorly maintained vehicles sometimes when customers try to part-exchange their car for one of our used cars in Ely. The truth is that a poorly maintained car can be worth considerably less than a routinely serviced one. When people buy a used car they like to see that it comes with a fully up-to-date service record that shows the car has been well looked after.

    We know it can be tempting to avoid getting your car serviced, especially if money is tight and the car is running well at the time. Waiting until something does go wrong, however, can lead to higher repair bills in the long run. Cars are full of hundreds of moving parts and some areas, such as tyres, get a lot of work. Getting into the habit of regularly checking your tyres is a good idea; apart from being illegal to drive with worn tyres, it can be dangerous, especially once you start driving in winter conditions. Checking oil and water levels should also be part of your regular maintenance and only takes a few minutes.

    Booking your car in for its regular service, as indicated in the service booklet, shouldn't be avoided. We do car servicing and MOTs at LG Car Sales, and would be delighted to see you at our Ely centre. If you are looking for a quality used car in Cambridgeshire and want to use your vehicle as part-exchange, having a full service record of your car is a definite plus. We have many loyal customers who, when they want to buy a used car in Ely, know that they can buy from us with confidence. All of our stock is serviced and every car sold comes with 12 month AA breakdown cover, for extra peace of mind.
