Winter can be one of the most challenging seasons for drivers in the UK - especially if they're unprepared for the cold weather and tough road conditions ahead. Now is the best time to have your Vauxhall checked and make sure it supports you through the season.
The main hazards you'll encounter on the road are caused by snow and ice. Snowfall covers obstacles and potholes which could damage your car, and ice lowers traction and stability. Where the tarmac has been gritted to prevent ice from forming, the grit could stick to your Vauxhall's body and wheels and start to corrode them.
Underneath the bodywork, the engine and battery will be affected by a drop in temperature - meaning that the car may take longer to start up. It's also important to check the functional parts of your model to make sure they're in good working order and don't need to be replaced. We advise having the tyres, gearbox, lights, mirrors and wipers inspected.
This can all be done with a winter health check at your nearest Lookers Vauxhall service centre - and you can make your appointment now. The service is specifically designed to prepare your model for the winter, and identifies issues ranging from general wear and tear to serious electrical or engineering faults. If any work is needed on your Vauxhall, this can be done on site while you wait.
