Did you know that air fresheners can be the difference between a pass or fail on your MoT? And what other unusual but simple things should you look out for when preparing your vehicle for the annual test? The yearly MoT may be a day that you see marked in the calendar that fills you with dread. If you haven’t followed your vehicle’s service intervals or ignored warning lights on the dashboard, your nervousness is probably amplified.
According to research by safety organisation TyreSafe in 2020, one in five of the UK’s motorists never check their tyres and this statistic increases to three out of five for younger drivers. In addition, one in four of the 40 million tyres that daily travel on the country’s road network are illegal in terms of wear or damage and annually, 2.2 million tyre related defects are highlighted as a result of national MoT testing.
Depending on who you are, a car trip can either be a source of excitement or dread for you, it depends if you’re a comfortable driver or if you worry about the little things! Most of the time, things can run a lot smoother if you just prepare properly for your journey, as this will help you in the long run.
As the days are now sunnier and longer, it’s important to prepare your car for the summer months. Summer is the perfect time for road trips with beautiful scenery, and you wouldn’t want that to be interrupted by your car not working as efficiently as it should be.
It’s the summer and therefore, everyone’s thinking about putting their air con on in their car as soon as they get in it, but how do you know if your air con is up to scratch?
Finding a new garage can be a tricky process, you usually only go to a garage when there's a problem with your car or you have an MOT or service booked in, so it can be a stressful time, especially when it's your first time with a new garage.
Generally, modern vehicles are incredibly reliable, so, as drivers, we take for granted that we can just jump in and get going, without a second thought.
Whenever you use a business or service, you usually check the reviews before purchasing or booking in, so when looking at what garage you should use, it's recommended you look at the reviews of the establishment first.
