Getting your car serviced is important for a number of reasons. It is worth familiarising yourself why regular car servicing is important. We all know that MOT is mandatory – if your car is more than three years old, an annual MOT check is a legal requirement to ensure it’s roadworthy. However, nearly 40% of cars submitted for MOT testing end up failing. This is mainly because car owners neglect other regular, but not mandatory check ups. So before heading to get your MOT check done, make sure your car safe on the road and you don’t have to worry about anything – by doing these simple checks every so often.
As the tyres are the first contact between your car and the road ensuring that they are safe and in their best shape is crucial. We’re talking about both winter and summer tyres of course as we all know that how important is to swap the tyres when the cold weather arrives. First and foremost, you need to check the tread depth of each tyre on your vehicle. Without adequate tyre tread depth your chances of having an accident are greater. Another important thing to measure is the pressure of your tyres. Without the correct pressure in each tyre, you could run the risk of not being in total control of your car. And of course general wear and tear needs to be checked often. Buy tyres in Wakefield from Ossett Tyre House. They sell great quality tyres for every price bracket.
Your vehicle’s battery is an extremely important component. Regular check to see is they are fully functional and fit so that no inconvenience is caused and safe drive is assured. Here are a few simple battery maintenance tips: inspect the battery (check for corrosion or acid built up, look for worn up cables), check the expiration date, make sure you’re installing the correct battery and maybe invest in buying a battery tester.
