Should I get my car serviced now or delay?

I live in Dungarvan, 50km from Waterford where I purchased my car and which is under warranty and now due a service. Is this considered essential travel from a safety viewpoint and if not and I delay the service, will it affect my warranty?

Should I change my Skoda Fabia's belt?

I have a 60-plate Skoda Fabia 1.6 TDI, mileage 91k. My garage keeps telling me I should get the cambelt changed. No record of it having a new one fitted before I bought it, when it showed 48k.

Please advise.

Should this Qashqai's belt be changed?

Hi all,

I am close to buying a 2012 Nissan Qashqai+2 Tekna model with 89,000 miles on the clock. When I asked the garage about the timing belt and water pump, they said it was too early, that it's usually done at 120,000 miles; is this true? I am worried because it's a lot of money to spend to be screwed over...
