Make sure everything is in order with our free vehicle check.
With potholes reportedly causing as many as 1 in 10 mechanical failures on UK roads and costing the British motorists an estimated £2.8 billion every year, it could be an opportune time to take advantage of this complimentary smart offer.
The damage resulting from hitting a pothole can often go undetected but could seriously affect the tyres, wheel alignment and suspension of your car as well as its overall driving performance.
Tips to minimise the danger of potholes:
Be vigilant, looking out for those potholes even in bad wet weather.
Keeping your distance with the vehicle in front so you can see potholes in advance which comes on to the next point,
Avoid sudden braking, as it will put more stress on the front suspension
Keep the steering wheel held correctly as when driving over a deep pothole there is risk of losing control
Stay alert by being aware of vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians before changing direction
Book a free Road Damage Inspection at your local Lookers smart retailer and our expert technicians will carry out an extensive check on items that could be impaired by pothole damage, such as the wheel alignment, ball joints, coil springs, shock absorbers, steering and suspension.
Whilst your smart is with us, we will also conduct a Spring Health Check - again at no cost to you - to ensure that its other vital features are in order too.
What's more in line with the manufacturer recommendation and to maximise your convenience, if you have smart Cold Weather Tyres fitted to your car, we will swap them over with your standard tyres during the same visit.
