WLTP gives retailers servicing boost

  31 July 2019

Stricter emissions standards under WLTP regulations mean some manufacturers have had to shorted service intervals in order to make sure their vehicles are compliant. The changes could mean increased servicing business for retailers.

The change in service lengths, which impacts diesel engines across many brands, was first highlighted by Fleet Assist, which provides leading contract hire and leasing companies and rental organisations with a network of more than 5,000 franchise and independent service outlets.

Brands known to have shortened service intervals or added an oil change include Ford, BMW, Mini, Renault, Mercedes and Nissan. While many brands use variable service intervals some of these have had their upper limit lowered.
