Treat Your Car to a New Year’s Service!

Treat Your Car to a New Year’s Service!

With another year in the books, there’s no better time than now to take stock and give your car the belated Christmas gift of a thorough servicing.

The hectic period has died down, so if you weren’t able to get round to it in during the last couple of months of 2016, you can start 2017 off on the right foot by arranging your first service of the year.

Mid-winter check up

The winter period takes its toll on us all, and just like how we can be a tad worn down and out of shape come January, your car may also be feeling the effects of the harsh winter conditions.

Now is a handy time to get your car checked over; any damage or worn parts that might have cropped up during the cold snap are better dealt with sooner rather than later.

That said, we aren’t out of the winter woods yet, and the ongoing cold – as well as the ice, rain and potential snowfalls – will continue to burden your brakes, tyres, battery and more for some time yet. Service your car at the start of the new year to make sure it’s in the best possible condition for the remainder of the winter and beyond.

Time for a resolution

The most common new year’s resolutions made each year tend to focus on personal goals, like health or fitness, but why not resolve to keep your car healthy this year too? A full service is recommended at least once a year, so take advantage of your new-found motivation to book your car in for a service now, instead of delaying it until something needs looking at.

Getting your car checked early on means the task won’t be hanging over you for the rest of the year. If you’ve found it hard to stick to your servicing schedule and are looking to get things back on track, start again this new year. Make a point of undergoing regular servicing to make sure your car is in top condition for the whole of 2017 and for the foreseeable future.

The essentials

Servicing your car means that all the vital components of your vehicle are inspected and tested for signs of wear or damage. From essential safety features like your brakes to important fluids like antifreeze and engine oil, a service will help keep your car in perfect working order. For this reason, it’s wise to arrange a service for your car if you’ve noticed any kind of problem during the winter – or before. The professional mechanics in charge of servicing will be able to identify any issues, and will advise you on the best course of action should anything arise.

A January service is a timely way of getting your vehicle health in check, and will ensure that all the essentials are working as they should as you set off on another year’s worth of journeys.

Prevent problems from getting any worse

It’s easy to just ignore little niggling issues when it comes to your car. From unusual sounds to intermittent warning lights, you can end up putting them off for months at a time, and by then problems could be much, much worse.

As part of your new year commitment, make sure to have any outstanding issues looked at by a professional. It’s always best to identify and fix smaller issues quickly before they snowball into something more serious.

When driving with a fault, you’re not only risking your own safety, but also the safety of the passengers in your car and of other road users. Start off 2017 as you mean to go on, and have those persistent little problems sorted out in order to establish a safe year on the roads.
