At Lowton Motor Company we offer a Free Winter check with every MOT. As winter is quickly approaching, making sure you book your car into our Birchwood garage for a car winter check should be a priority. Winter driving can be testing on your car, so it is of vital importance to ensure that it is in top condition before adverse weather conditions hit.
Why you should get a winter check?
The days are getting shorter and the clocks will be going back an hour before you know it. As a result, the likelihood is that you will be doing quite a bit of your driving in the dark. Not only are the days getting shorter but they’re also getting much colder. The cold will cause you to be using many appliances in your car at one time, so it is important to ensure that everything is in working order before that time comes.
What will my Winter Check Include?
Your Free winter check with the Lowton Motor Company will include the necessary top up of your coolant level with the required anti-freeze.
Probably the most important analysis during a car winter check is of the battery. Car batteries are the most common cause of breakdowns in the winter months. A battery that is older than five years old may struggle to cope with the winter weather. Checking your car battery is important to avoid the inconvenience of breaking down.
Your vehicles headlights will also be checked to ensure they are in full working order. Your tyres also need to be checked before the winter months hit. Your cars tyres should have at least 3mm of tread before taking on the winter roads- the wear and pressure of each tyre will also be checked.
Often overlooked prior to winter is the condition of your car’s wiper blades. During your free winter check at LMC your wiper blades will be tested and replaced if necessary.
Although not included in every most Winter checks provided by MOT services, Lowton Motor Company also audit the following:
- Air Vents
- Engine Oil
- Engine Drivebelt
- Brake Pads & Discs
