Servicing menu

Our different levels of service are designed to meet the varying needs of vehicles, regardless of age, condition or history. We recommend a service every six months or 10,000 km. We will test or inspect fluids, filters and only recommend items that need replacing, saving you time and money in the long run.  

Recommendations

Petrol and diesel cars

We recommend a service every 10,000km or six months (whichever occurs first).

We have four levels of services available for both petrol and diesel, from Bronze through to Platinum using either Standard or Advanced oil.  The oil required for your vehicle will be dependent on a number of factors including age and model type.

Standard oil is a mineral or semi synthetic and is generally used in older vehicles.  Advanced oil is fully synthetic and is predominately used in newer vehicles. The selection of oil will be based on the original vehicle manufacturer specifications and the recommendation of the AA Auto Centre.

Oil required Level of service
Standard Oil - Petrol & Diesel Services        Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum
Advanced Oil - Petrol & Diesel Services Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum

When selecting your level of service this will depend on your vehicle's kilometres travelled or manufacturer recommendations and time since your last visit.

As a general guide we suggest the following service pattern. If you require more detail about vehicle servicing, please refer to the manufacturers recommendation or contact your local AA Auto Centre.
