Milton Keynes, 10 December, 2012 – The annual battle to keep mobile over winter has begun in earnest with heavy rain, ice and snow already causing travel chaos across the country.
To help ŠKODA owners stay safe and secure as the temperature dips, retailers across the country are introducing a new winter health check offer. For just £19.99, owners can have their cars treated to a comprehensive seven-point examination by fully-trained ŠKODA technicians.
The checklist focuses on the key areas of a car that suffer the most during the winter months.
These are checked for any blown bulbs and beam alignment. After all, there’s no point having great lights if they’re pointing in the wrong direction.
2 Wiper blades
Visibility can be at a premium during the winter months, so all blades are checked for wear and damage.
3 Windscreen washer fluid
A clean, dry windscreen means better visibility. The vehicle should be topped up with the correct antifreeze fluid to prevent any dangerous freeze-ups.
Responsive brakes are essential at any time of year, but in winter they are even more important. Discs, pads and fluid levels are inspected as part of the check to ensure perfect operation.
Often taken for granted, tyres are put under enormous stress during the winter months. To help owners get the most out of their cars in cold and wet conditions, ŠKODA retailers are now offering winter tyre packages at very competitive prices. Winter tyres are designed with special tread patterns that deliver improved grip at temperatures below 7ºC, and are recommended for all drivers venturing out over the winter months.
For owners who prefer to stick with their existing rubber, technicians will thoroughly check the condition of all tyres, highlighting any potential problem areas.
Cold weather can put a great strain on the battery, so this key component is checked thoroughly as part of the winter check.
It may sound like a strange thing to check in winter, but air-conditioning is a great ally in the battle to keep windscreens and windows mist-free. The checks assess the condition of the system and its effectiveness.
The winter checks can be carried out at any ŠKODA dealership nationwide, by skilled technicians who have the knowledge and expertise to service vehicles using genuine approved ŠKODA parts – all of which carry a two year unlimited mileage warranty.
Owners wishing to take advantage of the £19.99 winter check offer are advised to visit their local ŠKODA dealership.
