With winter comes dangerous driving conditions and vehicles that are more vulnerable to breaking down. The cold temperatures can mean that long journeys can seem more daunting, and preparation becomes key in order to help keep you and your family safe. Remove the worry from your journey with a FREE winter health check at Fox.
Our winter safety check covers all the most important parts of your vehicle for winter:
Light bulbs are essential for keeping you visible in dreary conditions, and having bulbs out can also be an MOT fail. We’ll check all external light bulbs are working.
Your tyres are the only thing gripping your vehicle to the ground, making them one of the most important safety points we check. We’ll make sure your tyre tread is at a healthy level, at the correct pressure, and are in a good overall condition.
Your brakes should actually get used less in cold and icy conditions, but we’ll check that your discs and pads are healthy enough to get you through until your next service or MOT. We’ll look at the wear on the brake pads, and the general condition of your discs.
Unfortunately, batteries have a habit of going flat during cold spells, due to slowed chemical reactions (it’s all a little technical) as well as increased use of electrical parts, including lights. We’ll check your battery level to make sure you’re not left in the cold.
We wouldn’t get very far on a rainy day without wiper blades and screen wash. We’ll check the blades are working as they should, and that your screen wash is topped up to a good level.
The clue is in the name; anti-freeze keeps everything ticking around the engine, prevents water-based fluids from freezing in the engine and raises the boiling point of engine coolant to avoid overheating.
Once we’ve completed the check, one of our team will discuss the report with you and explain any findings where necessary. The winter safety check is a no-obligation service, so as long as you’re happy, we’ll send you on your way!
