What is a Mazda Digital Service Record?
Cars with full service histories are worth more and easier to sell – it’s a fact. Indeed, according to an investigation carried out by ICM Research, a full service history on a car could increase its value by 26%.
But with the traditional book and stamp arrangement, sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of all your paperwork and even, in some extreme cases, lead to a fraudulent service history.
Mazda Digital Service Record (DSR).
Mazda UK Aftersales Director David Wilson-Green explains: “DSR replaces the traditional service record book which sits in the glovebox for 364 days of the year, emerging once every 12 months to be stamped when the car has its annual service. DSR is much more secure than the traditional paper service record. Service histories can be falsified; but with an electronic service record it is very difficult to be fraudulent.”
ICM Research’s findings showed that more than a third of buyers (34%) would not buy a car without a full service history. As a result, Mazda’s DSR is a great way to tell if a genuine service has been conducted or if any items have been replaced, as well as checking the anti-perforation body panel warranty. It’s a secure way of documenting any work done to a Mazda vehicle, and held on a central database, it means the information can’t get lost, helping add value in a private sale or part-exchange.
And now, with Mazda’s MyMazda app, you can keep track of all this information on your smartphone, helping you to keep on top of your car’s service intervals and history, as well as the ability to request roadside assistance in an emergency.
With the Mazda DSR you also get piece of mind if you go travelling, as no matter where you are in Europe, every Mazda Authorised Repairer will have access to your vehicle’s service history, ensuring your Mazda is looked after accordingly.
