Forte authorised service centre

We recommend you have your vehicle serviced every 12 months - more often if it covers a high annual mileage. Regular servicing reduces the risk of breakdown, reduces fuel consumption, and helps retain the value of your vehicle.

Remember, you are NOT obliged to use a main dealer garage to retain your manufacturer warranty.

Tyres and wheel balancing

We offer a skilled tyre replacement and puncture repair service.

Check tyres carefully for tread and general condition. The legal minimum tread depth is 1.6mm, but we recommend replacing them before the tread gets down to 2mm. Look for faults such as cuts, splits or bulges too and have any damaged or worn tyres replaced. Don't forget the spare.

If you switched to winter tyres in the autumn then you need to switch back to your 'summer' tyres. This will save your winter tyres for next year. Call us to change your tyres over.

Have you considered changing to winter tyres for safer winter motoring? Call us for advice and help changing.
