Will Your Car Make it Through Winter?

According to the AA and AXA, your car is 18% less likely to start in the winter and 51% more likely to suffer a flat battery or other electrical problem. Plus, the RAC estimates that drivers in some UK areas are 20% more likely to suffer a breakdown.

The last thing you need this winter is to be stuck at the side of the road in the dark or freezing cold waiting for a recovery vehicle. It’s stressful, it’s expensive and it could lead to you cancelling Christmas for the second year in a row.

But what if we told you there was an easy way to prevent the problem in the first place?

Our Winter Health Check is designed to keep your car running smoothly and give it a fighting chance when the weather takes a turn. Plus, it’s a cost-effective alternative to a service, so you can get the peace of mind you deserve for less.

Avoid a Breakdown This Winter & Keep Christmas On Track

Driving in winter can be tough and dangerous at the best of times, so don’t let it catch you out. If you travel a lot during winter, the last thing you need is the stress and inconvenience of being stranded by the roadside. Especially if you’re driving home for Christmas.

Most importantly, your car battery is much more vulnerable during winter. We all use them more during the colder months as our lights and heaters become more necessary. But they’re much less effective at a lower temperature, especially if they’re old or already in poor condition. In fact, according to CTEK, they produce 35% less current in the winter vs the summer!

1 in 2 of us drove around with an undercharged or failing battery in winter 2020. Don’t make the same mistake this year. Our Winter Health Check makes sure your battery is working properly, including a thorough inspection as one of the 17-points.

Get a professional to give you the peace of mind about your car that you deserve. Book a FREE Winter Health Check today and make sure your car is ready for whatever winter can throw at it. Plus, if it does need repairs, you can deal with them on your terms and find the best deal, rather than being at the mercy of the first garage you’re towed to!
