Why does my vehicle's air conditioning system need to be serviced?
Air conditioning systems need to be regularly serviced because.
- Up to 10% of the refrigerant is lost every year from the system naturally through hoses and connection elements. This means that the cooling capacity is noticeably reduced after only three years.
- The compressor oil supply is no longer guaranteed as the refrigerant that circulates through the system serves as its carrier medium. The compressor replacement is very expensive and is usually in excess of $1,000.
- Humidity in the system can cause expensive repairs when the filter/drier becomes saturated. This can lead to corrosion of the components and eventually their mechanical failure. Hence, it is strongly recommended that filter/drier be replaced every two years.

Clutch and Brakes
Your car’s braking system is its most critical safety system and you should always get it checked if you suspect it has any problems. A properly operating brake system helps you to ensure safe vehicle control and operation. Some of common brake problems can include a squealing or grinding noise when braking, vehicle vibration, or pulling to one side when the brakes are applied. As with all car parts, your brakes will need replacing from time to time and should be checked regularly. You should always be aware of when you need to get them replaced.
