Whilst the size of the modern engine is getting smaller - the demand for improved fuel economy, safety, lower emissions and increased performance is growing.

It is advised that you have your car serviced at least once a year or in line with your vehicle manufacturers recommended service intervals

Not servicing your car regularly is a false economy. Catastrophic problems that could have been completely avoided can happen with cars that have not been regularly serviced.
Team.ie & Team AutoCentre use parts supplied by original equipment manufacturers.
The vast majority of parts supplied on your car are not made by the car manufacturer - they buy in from global part suppliers who specialise in manufacturing particular products. There is a misconception that the car manufacturers produces all the parts for their vehicles.
Popular items such as wipers, filters, brakes, shock absorbers, bulbs etc. come from independent manufacturers who design, develop and own this technology.
The same parts are supplied to three markets:
This enables Team P R Reilly to purchase direct from the parts manufacturer and supply straight into your local Team AutoCentre garage.
This ensures excellent quality parts with tremendous savings for the consumer.
There may an occasion due to the age or value of a car when you wish to have the option of buying a non OE item.
Team AutoCentre can offer these options while still ensuring you receive a premium quality product.
Many motorists with vehicles under manufacturers' warranty are under the misguided impression that any servicing, maintenance or repairs must be carried out by the authorised dealer otherwise their warranty is invalidated.
They are still unaware that, since June 2010, European competition rules which cover agreements between vehicle manufacturers and their authorised dealers, repairers and spare parts distributors, have confirmed important rights which help the motorist. Under the rules, car manufacturers will no longer be able to make the warranty conditional on having the car serviced, or even simple things like oil changes, done in the dealers' workshops.
The introduction of these rules means that motorists can shop around for the most competitive price and convenient location for servicing their cars.
Servicing and maintenance are calculated to represent around 40% of vehicle running costs over the whole life of the car.
