AZ Autos of Hitchin are dedicated to maintaining your vehicle to the highest standard possible.

The servicing schedules for modern cars can vary greatly, between 10,000 to 20,000 miles or 12 to 24 months, so it is essential that the any work is carried out in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Our latest diagnostics systems allow us to determine the correct service requirements for your vehicle, ensuring your vehicle is maintained to the same standard as a main dealer. In fact, under EU regulations, you no longer need to take your vehicle to a main dealer to maintain its warranty, so AZ Autos can offer motorists significant savings.

AZ Autos has a selection of fixed-price service options to ensure the price we quote is the price you pay when you collect your vehicle – unless additional work has been agreed.

Typically, we carry out two types of servicing:

  • Interim Service: oil change, oil filter change, 50-point health check, full guarantee on parts and labour.
  • Full Service: oil change, oil filter change, fuel filter change, air filter change, spark plugs renewed (if petrol), 50-point health check, full guarantee on parts and labour.

Many of our loyal customers in the Hitchin area make use of our servicing and MOT offer, where we will MOT your car for only £30 when you book your service.
