Prepare Your Vehicle For Any Weather
Quite recently our weather here is the UK has been playing a game of peek-a-boo, surprising us with 30°C heat one day to almost half a months worth of rain the next. Whilst more and more modern vehicles are being designed and built to try and cater to every weather condition, there are certain steps you can take to fight back against the powers that be and improve your driving experience for all seasons and weather conditions
So from checking your tyre pressure to making sure the suitable amount of fluids are present, we’re going to run you through some of the top tips to pay attention to no matter the weather to fully optimise your driving experience through warm and rainy days.
If the sun looks like it's going to stay around for a while, your tyres might see many miles ahead on the hot open road. However, our technicians can make sure your vehicle is also ready for any rainy days ahead, by replacing your tyres if your current ones are lacking the proper tread depth or in poor condition. Driving in wet conditions and through standing water can result in hydroplaning and our experienced technicians can evaluate your tyre conditions and adjust your tyre pressure to help make your vehicle safer on the roads no matter the weather
Warmer temperatures, as well as colder ones, can affect the battery of your vehicle and its components, so we can test its health. If you’ve noticed your vehicle is already struggling to start this is usually a good indicator that your battery needs recharging or replacing.
To help you stay cool in the summer and clear any foggy windows in the colder days, we’ll review and inspect the performance of your air conditioning, heating and defrosting systems. Visit one of our other blog posts to see how you can best look after your Air-con system. Book your air-con service at Croxdale. Get in touch with your local Croxdale Autocentre for more information.
All this and so much more is covered in the free vehicle health check you will receive when you book your vehicle in with the team at Croxdale.
