Recommended Service Intervals Our
recommended service intervals are every 10,000km's for all Jeep and Land Rover turbo diesel models and always include
engine oil, oil filter, air filter & most importantly fuel filters.
This is based on our experience with common rail turbo diesel engines to
provide owners with long term reliable trouble free motoring out of
your Jeep or Land Rover branded vehicle A lot of engine related issues on modern common rail diesel engine can often be related to poor or long service intervals such as servicing every 20,000km's, these include turbo failures, engine main bearing slip or failure, common rail fuel pressure system faults such as injector, pressure sensor, pressure regulator faults.

Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value. (Albert Einstein) This
is our aim when it comes to the service (and repair) of your Jeep,
Land-Rover or Range Rover. Every vehicle that is serviced by us, on it’s
first visit we do a comprehensive inspection. Not to give the owner a
scroll of items that need repairing but to give you (and us) a good
overall report on its current condition. From there we recommend a
service schedule that is based on offering you the client both value for
money with the aim of reducing your cost of ownership and to maintain
your vehicle to an exacting standard with regular and preventative
This is how servicing should be viewed… as “value” and not simply another financial burden.

service schedules are above, beyond and exceed manufacturers required
specifications at all times. All service work is documented and carried
out to exacting standards.
Scheduled, logbook servicing
is typically your 5,000Km, 10,00Km, 15,000Km, 20,000Km service, these
are at a minimum followed to manufacturers requirements. Newer vehicles
such as the Land Rover Discovery 3, Discovery 4, Range Rover, Range
Rover Sport, Land Rover Defender 2.4lt & 2.2lt we recommend a
service schedule of every 10,000Kms, this will ensure a well maintained
and therefor reliable vehicle for the owner. 10,000Km service intervals
exceed the Jaguar Land Rover recommendation.
a bit of a catch phrase adopted by the motor vehicle repair industry,
it refers to scheduled servicing for new motor vehicles under a new
vehicle warranty. "logbook servicing" is used by both the manufacturers
and other service centres, its a sales pitch, nothing more.
Competition and Consumer Act 2010 prevents the practice of exclusive
dealing by attaching conditions to the sale of goods that restrict the
buyer’s freedom of choice to deal with whom or in what they choose.
means that a motor vehicle manufacturer cannot specify that you must
have your car serviced by a manufacturers dealer network as part of the
warranty conditions. A manufacturer can not void a warranty simply
because a motor vehicle owner has chosen to have a vehicle serviced
outside the dealer network.

Service work is carried out as per manufacturers service requirements.
If we don't have the service information already available for your vehicle, we log into either the online Chrysler portal or Jaguar Land Rover (through a yearly paid subscription) and download the latest information available.
All fluids used exceed manufacturers specifications, often this requires using the fluid as used by the manufacturer such as Castrol or ZF. Otherwise if a better specification is available, we use quality Penrite products.

All work is documented & signed.
Major Service Work
this is such items as vehicle fluid change (diffs, transfer case, hub
assemblies, coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid), auto
transmission servicing & fluid change, timing belt replacement or

intervals such as coolant and servicing auto transmissions exceed the
manufacturers service schedules as we consider such items to be a
preventative maintenance measure.
