Winter Vehicle Servicing
Whilst it doesn’t seem that long ago that we were watching the Ashes cricket series or Andy Murray winning Wimbledon, the Winter months are fast approaching. The shops are stocking up on mince pies and decoration and as motorists we should now be thinking about caring for our vehicle during the Winter months.

Autumn is a good time of year to schedule your annual full major service. This will ensure your vehicle is in the best shape possible to cope with the winter. Our fully trained vehicle technicians can prepare your car for the cold weather, rain, frost and snow.

Having your vehicle serviced on a regular basis ensures safety, not just for you but for other road users. As the nights draw in fluid changes and exhausted component replacements aid your vehicles efficiency and performance. Here’s a checklist to help reduce the chances of problems and increase safety:

• Visual assessment of vehicle and road lights
• Topping up Anti-Freeze, Oil and Water levels
• Checking battery voltage
• Tyre check for pressure and tread
• Wiper blade check
• Check foot and hand brake
