Our highly trained technicians want your car to run at its peak performance, efficiency and safety, and to achieve this it’s important that your vehicle is serviced regularly. Each DS model has its own servicing schedule to keep it running at optimum performance. We can help you understand your vehicle's recommended schedule and we will always use Original and Approved DS parts when the time comes for your car to be serviced.
Keep your DS at its brilliant best with an annual MOT. By choosing our highly trained DS specialist technicians, you can rest assured that your vehicle is in the best possible hands. We'll even clean your car while it's with us.
Although the original DS specification of your car’s timing belt exceeds normal requirements, timing belts wear out over time in all cars – even your DS. If your timing belt fails, it can cause serious damage and even engine breakdown, so call us or check your DS servicing handbook to find out when your timing belt is likely to need replacing. .
It’s important to keep your engine oil topped up, but also to use the correct grade of oil for your car. By choosing DS for your servicing, we’ll replace your oil with the exact grade needed for your vehicle.
Every DS model is designed with hyper-comfort in mind. To maintain this experience of driving your DS, we advise keeping your air conditioning system fresh and clean with regular checks and maintenance. You can also help preserve the comfortable atmosphere in your car by maintaining the cabin and pollen filters. Our specialist technicians check these filters to stop unwanted particles entering the air inside your vehicle, banishing allergens and odours. We are also able to replace your filters if they become clogged, so you can continue to enjoy the dynamism and serenity of your DS.
Another filter that must be kept in good condition is the diesel particulate filter (DPF), which is fitted to all DS diesel engines as standard. This filters out carbon particles before they leave the exhaust system, which are then burned off when driving at higher speeds. If the filter starts to clog, you'll see a message or light on the dashboard, and this usually means you simply need to go for a longer drive at higher speeds (on the motorway for example). However, if the filter becomes clogged, you may need to give us a call to clear it for you.
