Here's what you can expect from a full service at the Pentagon Group:
Maintaining a healthy engine
The oil being used by your vehicle's engine impacts directly on its performance and health. Clean oil lubricates the internal parts of your engine, reducing wear and protecting against damage. During a full service, a Pentagon technician will change your oil, the sump plug washer and also replace the engine's oil filter. Using a suitable oil to lubricate your engine is vital and at Pentagon we only use synthetic-grade engine oil during servicing. As a result of a more complex chemical production process, synthetic oil is able to work effectively even when your engine temperature is low, when most engine wear occurs. It's also important to make sure that oil is not escaping from the system, so we'll also complete a full check of the engine and transmission for any signs of leaks and potential problems.
Checking your levels
A vehicle's engine also needs to have a suitable level of coolant available, with the correct anti-freeze content, in order to run properly. We'll make sure your engine has a sufficient supply and if not we'll top-up the levels free of charge. A free top-up of the oil in your car's power steering system is also included as standard. Finally, our technicians will look at the condition of your battery and give the levels a boost if required.
Is your engine breathing properly?
You only want to breathe clean air and so does your engine. An engine air filter prevents contaminants being sucked into the drivetrain but if this item is damaged or clogged, it can result in a lack of performance and reduced efficiency. We'll make sure your filter is up to the job.
Spark plugs and fuel filter
Our technicians will be guided by your vehicle's manufacturer when it comes to replacing spark plugs and the fuel filter. Please note that any replacements would incur an additional charge.
Fuel tank and exhaust system
A full inspection of your car's fuel tank will be carried out as part of the Pentagon full service, and we'll also check the fuel lines for any signs of damage or wear. Likewise, the vehicle's exhaust system will be checked for leaks and we'll make sure the mountings underneath the car are doing their job properly.
Maintaining your braking potential
When it comes to vehicle safety, it is of course essential to have brakes that you can rely on completely. To make sure your car's system is in full working order and capable of providing the necessary stopping power when you need it most, our technicians will check the condition of all the vehicle's brake pads and discs for signs of excessive wear. Brake lines and hoses are also tested during a full service, as is the car's parking brake function. We will also check on the condition of your brake fluid and make sure that there is the correct amount in the system.
Enjoy plenty of grip and great handling
Your tyres are the only point of contact you have with the road, so it is essential to make sure they are properly maintained and replaced when necessary. We'll test the remaining tread on your tyres, make sure they are properly inflated and also search for tears, splits and other signs of damage.
See and be seen
It is essential that your vehicle is properly illuminated at night to make you visible to other road users. Of course, you also need to see where you're going, which is why we'll flag up any broken bulbs or wiring that needs attention. A test of the car's windscreen wipers and washer function is carried out as standard on a full service, and we'll top up your washer container with a specially-formulated mix too.
Keeping you comfortable
Replacing your vehicle's pollen or cabin air filter will ensure a far more comfortable ride. We'll make sure it's changed to keep dust and particles out of your interior.
Using the latest technology, our technicians can connect your vehicle to the internet and check to see whether there are any updates waiting to be installed. Just like your computer at home, it is sometimes necessary to install new pieces of software. We'll also check for any manufacturer recalls that are relevant to your model of vehicle.
Giving your vehicle a clean bill of health
Our technician will put your vehicle through a final road test after the service is complete, just to make sure they're 100 per cent happy before handing back the keys.
As all servicing options available through Pentagon are set at a fixed price, regardless of make or model, you'll be fully aware of our competitive rates in advance. Consider joining one of our service plans and spreading the cost of car maintenance over a longer period. And by signing-up to a multi-year plan, you will protect yourself against inflation and potential future price rises.
