When the weather reaches extremes, it's good to check the following and take the following items with you in the car:
In cold weather - Check tyre tread depth to ensure good grip in the snow, ice or rain.
Check screenwash is topped up - you could use it neat as it has an anti-freeze within it.
Clear your windscreen with a scraper before driving off. Take de-icer for later in the day and use it on windscreen wiper mechanisms too.
In summer weather - Check screenwash is topped up.
Take a sun screen cover if you are leaving your car parked for a while - the interior and steering wheel will be hot on your return.
Get your air conditioning checked and re-gassed or sanitized if necessary. Inefficient air con uses extra fuel/power.
Keep sunglasses in the car to stop being dazzled by sunlight.
We offer seasonal health checks where a technician checks key items depending on the season.
