What's included in a free winter check?
We might be able to bust out the warm coat and woolly hats and scarves, but what can your car do to protect itself in the winter? That responsibility is down to you, but luckily car dealers with auto centres like Carbase offer free winter checks in the cold season, so that your car will be ready for whatever the weather throws at it.
But what's included in your free winter check exactly? We'll break it down for you (not literally):
Carbase checks the overall condition of your tyres, as well as the tread depth and pressure, to ensure they're safe to drive on (including your spare). You might even decide to switch to winter tyres for better grip and cornering ability; we can do this for you.
Most batteries will fail in the cold weather, So Carbase ensures your battery is protected, charged and secured.
Coolant and Antifreeze checks
The cooling system is a leading cause of engine-related breakdowns. Carbase ensures the levels and strength of your car's antifreeze and cooling system is optimal.
Wiper blade and screen wash inspection
Visibility in winter is limited, so you need your windshield wiper blades to be working at their very best. Carbase inspects their condition and ensures they're suitable for effective screen clearing, as well as unlikely to run out of wiper fluid.
Car light assessments
There's a lot less hours of sunlight in winter than other times of the year, so you'll need all your car lights working if you want to feel safe (and keep your car legal to drive). Carbase checks all of your lights and makes sure they all work properly.
Oil level replenishment
Oil in your car becomes less effective as time goes on, and eventually stops protecting your engine against corrosion. Carbase will check your oil levels and perhaps switch you to thinner oil, making it easier for you to get your car running in winter.
