Why is logbook servicing important?

The car logbook helps to guide you on certain mechanical parts of the car which need to be looked into at specific time intervals. If you are an owner who maintains a proper logbook servicing of your car, it implies that your car is in perfect condition and its warranty is protected.

If your car is under warranty, then you need to maintain your logbook servicing and keep a record of these in your logbook. There are a number of very good reasons why a logbook car service is necessary for new cars and all of them relate to saving you some serious money during the time you own the vehicle.
