Porsche Service FAQs
How often should a Porsche be serviced?
Porsche's service schedules vary from model to model, but generally recommend that most models should undergo an interim service every 5000 to 7000 miles driven, whilst full services are tricker to time. Though full services should typically be completed on a 12-month basis, it is best to consult your model's exact service schedule before booking in. Further information on your Porsche model’s exact servicing schedule can be found on the Porsche website – but can be followed by any independent garage.
As a standard, Bosch Auto service recommends an interim, or ‘bronze’ service be performed every 5000 to 7000 miles in order to ensure the roadworthiness of your Porsche between full, or ‘gold’ services. Regularly servicing your Porsche will help keep it safe, reduce repair costs, and ensure it is performing at its best. Book your Porsche service with us online here.
How do I find my Porsche service history?
Porsche service records and histories are typically marked in the service vehicle provided with your Porsche at the point of purchase. This book should detail all service procedures performed on the Porsche throughout its lifetime. In recent years, Porsche has begun uploading service records to an online database. Independent dealers cannot upload to this database, but they can access it to review any records previously uploaded by a Porsche dealer.
Those unable to find their service book or online records may consult their regular servicer to source new records or may approach either an independent garage, or Porsche dealership, in order to source any existing online records.
How often does a Porsche need an oil change?
Though this may vary slightly from model to model, and according to usage type and frequency, Porsche typically recommends an oil change on a 10,000-mile basis - or once every 12 months - whichever is reached first. Porsches used for performance, e.g. racing, will require more frequent oil changes than this in order to ensure optimum performance.
Oil level checks are typically included in every level of Porsche servicing, so those ensuring their vehicle is frequently inspected and maintained will be informed on oil status by their technician.
Will servicing my Porsche with an independent garage invalidate my warranty?
Servicing your Porsche with an independent garage or dealer will not invalidate its warranty – so long as certain conditions are met. Though dealerships often state that vehicles must be serviced at Porsche dealership locations in order to retain their warranties, EU ‘block exemption’ laws state that vehicle owners may have their vehicle serviced by an independent garage or dealership without invalidating their warranty - the manufacturer’s recommended schedule is followed, and only manufacturer-approved or equivalent quality parts are installed. Independent garages, such as Auto Service & Tuning Centre, are able to access Porsche’s servicing schedules, invest in advanced diagnostic equipment on-par with that used in dealerships, and source genuine, or equivalent quality parts, whilst offering servicing at an accessible price point.
Auto Service & Tuning Centre guarantees our use of quality or manufacturer-approved parts, and recommended schedules in our Mercedes services. Book with us today.
How long will a Porsche service take?
The length of a Porsche service varies depending on the type of service required, and the condition of your vehicle, with interim or 'bronze' services typically taking the least amount of time, and covering 31 checks and adjustments, whilst full services cover in excess of 50. On average, a Porsche service with Auto Service & Tuning Centre will take around 3 hours and will be completed by a team of specialist technicians and mechanics.
If any issues arise during the service out with planned part replacements, our team will explain in depth the reasons for replacement and associated costs, allowing the vehicle owner to make an informed decision before proceeding.
