Benefits of a Main Dealer Service
Having your vehicle regularly checked and maintained by a main dealer – such as any of our Donnelly Group locations – benefits both you and your car significantly.

What our service includes
Each time that you return to us for expert, manufacturer-standard servicing, you can be certain that you will receive thorough care. Enjoy all of the following advantages at Donnelly Group.
Our service centres are equipped with cutting-edge diagnostic equipment and machines. These are custom-built to inspect and analyse the components, inner workings and performance of your car or van. Using these tools, we can quickly build a picture of how the vehicle currently operates and identify any issues.
Why use manufacturer approved parts
Over time, your car or van will naturally incur wear and tear on the key components. These frequently include the brake pads, tyres, fuel and oil lines, light bulbs and more. When such items need to be replaced, always look for genuine parts direct from the manufacturer.
These parts are made to the highest quality, designed to fit perfectly, operate precisely and safely, and prolong the running life of your model. They will work first time, maintaining the performance you’ve come to expect from the vehicle you own. Items from other sources may not work as effectively, leading to slower running, higher fuel consumption or a drop in overall efficiency. With authentic components, this is not the case – your vehicle will run just as it should.
All new and Approved Used cars purchased from a main dealer come with a warranty. This cover affords you protection against future costs of maintenance, servicing and repairs which will inevitably be needed for your car or commercial vehicle over time. It typically lasts for a set time period or mileage limit, which vary between manufacturers. Having your vehicle serviced or maintained at a garage which is not authorised by the manufacturer could invalidate your warranty. The quality of the work may also be in doubt, and further issues down the line may become more expensive to rectify. These concerns can be avoided by always booking in for servicing with a main dealer for your make and model, such as one of our Donnelly Group locations.
Why We Use Castrol Professional Oil
An oil change is an essential part of any routine service. Over time as the engine parts rub together particles of soot and metal create a “sludge” that begins to circulate in the oil, scraping against components and causing damage to the mechanism. It is therefore essential to both have the oil in your car or van changed regularly and to use a high-quality product when replacing it that protects your engine in-between services, which is why the Donnelly Group dealerships throughout Northern Ireland always use Castrol Professional synthetic oils.
