Service & Repair History
Every car owner in his life at least once have gone through the process of buying or selling a car. If you are going to buy a car and you find the required car, you would want to check every aspect of that car carefully before buying. And some things are not very visible and easy to check just by taking a look at them. For example, whether the car had an accident or not? if that car has been repainted? how is the health of the engine? has oil been changed properly or timely in this vehicle or not? And if you get answers to these questions and get satisfied, you would buy the car without any hesitation.
And if you are trying to sell your car you would want to give answers to these questions with authenticity and reliability.
All the answers to these questions lie in the 'Service and Repair History' report/sheet of the car. So the service and repair history is of utmost importance for every car owner so that the misconceptions or lack of trust could be avoided between both the parties.
The service history of a car consists of every maintenance work performed on a vehicle, despite the repetition, difficulty, or price. Possibly the most common maintenance performed on a vehicle is to constantly replace the oil. Other typically swift & general forms of maintenance are the replacement of cabin & engine air filters, windscreen wipers, & batteries. These are all typically easy ways to maintain a car.
There are some records in the service history of a car which are more important to look out for. For example, many vehicles require that the timing belt should've been changed every 100,000-120,000 miles. This service could be expensive, and failing to perform it can end in the belt snapping. When a timing belt fails, your vehicle will break down wherever it is, and there is a chance that other significant parts will be broken due to the failure. A snapped timing belt can also lead to an engine replacement, which increases the costs of repair significantly.
Without having the service history of a car, it’s very difficult to know if and when this maintenance has been performed.
