Car Care & Maintenance
Regular preventive maintenance is probably the single thing you can do as a car owner to keep your ride happy and save money on repairs in the future. getting scheduled inspections and work done are like getting regular checkups at the doctor. They keep you healthy and give you—and the experts—a chance to catch anything serious before it becomes a major problem.
basic checks you can do yourself on your car:
Fuel - check that you have enough fuel!
Lights - check all lights, indicators and brake lights are working.
Water - check the levels of your engine coolant and windscreen washer fluid.
Electrics - check all electrical features
Rubber - check the tyres are fit for purpose, and that they are at the correct pressure.
It is vital that you check your car tyres regularly, for wear, cracking, bulging, pressure or objects caught in the tread. Not only are defective tyres highly dangerous but if found by the police to be defective (that is with a tyre tread of less than 1.6mm across the central 3/4 of the tyre or in any other way unroadworthy) you will face a fine of up to £2500 and 3 penalty points.
The last thing you want is a full engine rebuild. however, if you've missed out on regular maintenance this could be where your car is heading. get your car booked in today to avoid any nasty repair bills!
