Is Your Car Ready for Winter?
The change in temperature and road conditions can mean that your car needs to work a little harder to perform in the same way that it does in the summer months. At Motorcare, we will give your car a winter check for FREE. We will advise you on what to keep an eye on, and let you know if anything needs attention.
Don’t worry if you haven’t checked your car for a while, let us do the hard work. Our skilled technicians will make sure that your car is all set for the colder months, giving you advice on how to keep your car running smoothly and ensure that you are safe in your winter motoring.
Our FREE 20-point Winter Vehicle Inspection includes:
• Tyres – the condition, pressures and tread depth
• Air-Con performance – Air conditioning is useful in winter as it aids with de-misting the screen and windows
• Brakes – front and rear (visual inspection only)
• Lights – front and rear
• Dashboard warning lights
• Radiator - for leaks
• Fan - for cutting out
• Oil level
• Other Fluid levels – clutch, power steering, brake and washer fluid
• Antifreeze strength and level
• Drive belts
• Wiper performance – front and rear (if applicable)
This is only an inspection and won’t guarantee that you won’t breakdown, but it will minimise the risk of breakdowns for easily preventable reasons to ensure that you and your car are in the best shape to tackle the roads in the colder and wetter months.
An increasing number of motorists are now opting to use winter tyres, they vastly improve the handling of a vehicle in cold, wet and icy conditions where normal tyres fall below their optimal performance levels.
Winter tyres shouldn’t be considered an added expense, we can store your standard tyres over the winter while you your winter tyres are in use and switch them over for you when you are ready to move back on to standard tyres (usually around February / March), when we will store your winter tyres again until you are ready to switch back. If used correctly both sets of tyres should last longer, in terms of distance, than if you used one set of tyres all year round, so you should view it as just changing the way you buy tyres the cost is actually very similar to replace in the long run.
We can give you more information on the benefits of winter tyres when you come in for your winter check-up
