3 Major Steps to Get Your Car Serviced in Dubai

Get your car serviced in Dubai
Car care

Car servicing is extremely important for the overall condition of your car in Dubai. This is mainly due to the prevalent climate in the country which is a real nightmare for both car manufacturers and car owners. Several car manufacturers pay close attention to detail when they design their cars for the global market – however, the catch lies in this very sentence itself. The word ‘global’ plays a critical role in the overall mindset of these car manufacturers. They have repeatedly stated that the performance of their cars completely depends on the surrounding climate that the car operates in. They have also stated that these stats tend to be severely affected in ‘extreme temperatures’. And Dubai’s climate is the perfect definition of the same. Most car manufacturers test their cars in temperatures ranging from 8°C to 40°C. However, the climate here in Dubai regularly exceeds that during the summers.

Hence, our vehicles are subjected to extreme heat almost all year long.

Following are some of the effects of climate on cars condition:

  1. Engine
    Checking car engine conditionDriving around in your vehicle in such extreme conditions will definitely affect fuel consumption along with the overall output of your car in terms of power. It will consume more fuel and also carry a risk of car breaking down during a long trip. 
  2. Electrical Sytems

However, when you switch on the AC at full blast to combat the same heat, they are again exposed to extreme temperatures thus making them weak, and ultimately fail. Similarly, the AC of your car is also subjected to extreme conditions as it struggles to bring down the temperature inside of your car within a short period of time. This affects the Air Conditioning system adversely and can cause it to fail.
  3. Body

The entire body of your car heats up when left out in the sun which inadvertently affects the paint job since it has to continuously withstand the UV radiation from the sun. If the coat of paint is compromised, the heat can get to the body of your car thus damaging it and affecting its structural integrity. 
  4. Tyres

  5. Windshield and Lights

    We know that when you leave your car out for long you may find it covered in sand. However, we don’t tend to think much about it until one of the lines inside the car gets jammed or the windshield is seriously affected. This is because although glass is made from sand, the two don’t really go hand in hand. Constant interaction with sand will ultimately scratch the glass, thus making it foggy and translucent. The same happens with your headlights and they start dimming, affecting your ride at night. It should be clear by now that.If our cars were sentient living organisms, we’d be weeping right now because of the conditions that they are subjected to. However, we also know how car-crazy Dubai is and not a single day goes by without some developments in the sector. Periodic and proper car maintenance is crucial to its performance and longevity, especially in climates like this. Who do you really trust when it comes to proper care about your car?

    We understand the need for a customer-oriented approach – after all, no one understands your car better than you. Therefore, we try to listen to our users and understand the exact issues that they are facing in order to take the proper approach towards the problem.

    Open Conversation:

    As stated in the above section, having an open conversation with your car service provider is extremely crucial to the overall checkup and car maintenance. Once you have found an apt service centre (read: Carcility), it is very important that you have a proper conversation with the service provider in order to convey the exact problems that you are facing in your car. Each makes is modeled differently and therefore the mechanic needs to know the exact issues. Otherwise, it will just be a generalized approach to the problem. Make sure you take the time out to make them understand exactly what you want to be fixed in your car.

    Post-Checkup Stress Disorder:

    Do not simply go, pick up your car and leave the garage immediately. Do not be that guy who comes back later with a problem that has not been fixed. Even though most service providers will reluctantly checkup your car again after you come back, chances are they will not be that thorough! So make sure you have a list of the problems in your car handy and check them out one after the other once you pick up your car. Once the immediate problems are eradicated, take your car out for a spin around the block and check if all things are according to your desires. Only then should you leave the car service center.
