Winter is Coming

With Winter fast approaching as we have entered the final month of Autumn, its important we remember how the colder months can effect our vehicles performance and sometimes hit us with nasty and unwanted surprises.

Here are 3 common faults that our vehicles can be faced with during the winter months:

Dead Battery

The colder weather and darker nights mean that we are using our headlights longer and putting our heating on more often than usual. Along with the use of other components, our batteries are working a lot harder for a lot longer.

Tire Pressure

The cold weather can cause our tires to lose pressure which means they have an increased risk of going bald which can be dangerous on icy and wet roads. Try the 20p test to make sure your tires are not going to put you at risk.

Frozen Windscreen Wipers

It is not uncommon that lower temperatures can cause your wipers for freeze and stick to your windscreen which can ultimately obstruct your view in the snowy or wet conditions.

If you think your vehicle is being effected by any of the following, don’t panic, just give us a call on 01204 653 900 and we can advise you on the best solutions and fixes.

Remember to stay safe on the road and remember, we are only a phone call away.
