After the unseasonable mini-heatwave of last week, autumn is back. The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is upon us, bringing with it the promise of winter – and so perhaps now is a good time to remind ourselves of some basic vehicle checks that can save time, money and possibly pain.
We all know that there are regular checks we should make to our cars; but how many of us know exactly what they are and how to do them? Not to mention whether they are done regularly at all.
But a few minutes spent making a few simple checks can identify potential problems before they cost motorists money. Plus, there’s the peace of mind that your vehicle is reliable and safe.
Kevin Clinton, RoSPA’s head of road safety, has made a short film outlining the vehicle checks we should all be making on a regular basis – as well as reminding us how often they should be carried out.
