Winter can be a tough time for cars and vehicles with breakdown services typically being called out several thousand times on winter mornings.
You can help avoid being caught in this situation yourself by taking action in advance and getting your car serviced and correctly maintained in preparation for the cold weather.
Radiators and anti-freeze, Batteries and Oil levels are all key items that should be checked regularly.
If your anti-freeze hasn’t been changed for a couple of years for example, it’s probably time it should be. If you can’t remember the last time it was changed, or don’t know, then it definitely needs changing!
And don’t forget to pay attention to your tyres. Tread levels and correct inflation are especially important at this time of year when roads may be wet, icy or covered in snow.
