Car Repair at Fergies Thatcham Newbury


Do electric vehicles need servicing?

As with petrol or diesel vehicles, electric vehicles should be serviced regularly. Battery cells, electric motors, tyres, and brakes will be checked as part of the service.

Manufacturers recommend that all-electric vehicles be serviced regularly to maintain their warranty and integrity.

Does my electric car require an annual maintenance service?

Electric vehicles need regular servicing. The servicing schedule for electric vehicles can vary depending on the manufacturer. At Fergies, we follow the manufacturer’s recommended servicing schedule, which is typically every 12 months or a certain number of miles, to ensure that the vehicle is maintained as the manufacturer advises. This ensures that all the vehicle’s working parts are in good shape.

The in-car indicator will notify you when to have your car serviced.  The indicator appears on your dashboard and usually tells you how long it is until your next service.

What happens during an EV service? What do you check/replace?


Lights and Visibility: All lights, including internal ones, are tested for optimal performance or faults. We inspect all windows, wipers, and mirrors for faults and weak points, along with the registration plates for damage and clarity.


Vehicle Interior: The horn, hazard lights, air conditioning, and seat belts are tested to ensure they work properly. Additionally, we review the internal diagnostics, including warning messages from the vehicle’s internal software.


Steering & Suspension: Every joint, gaiter and wheel bearing is tested for strength and function. The front & rear shock absorbers are checked, and the wheel alignment.


Braking System: The complete brake system, including discs and pads, and all surrounding mechanisms are inspected, measured, and tracked for their service life.


Tyres: Tyres, including your spare, are checked for tread, and tyre pressures are adjusted before being reinstalled. Wheels are inspected for corrosion or weak spots. If necessary, inflation kits are checked as well.


Under the Car: All connectors are checked for corrosion, and the battery and high voltage cables are checked to make sure they have not been damaged.  The battery relies on fluid to keep it at a neutral temperature, so this is checked for levels and leaks.


Final Checks: We inspect brake fluid levels before making any final checks, and we update your service record.
