Get your car summer ready

Published: Wednesday 25th of June 2014 | Author: Holly | Category: Concorde Auto Centre

Most drivers are aware of the precautions they need to take for winter – however few are aware of the need to prep your vehicle for the summer months. Here are some tips on how to get your car summer ready!

1.    Engine Coolant System

One of the most common causes of summer breakdowns is caused by engine overheating.  This is easily avoided by ensuring all fluid levels are checked regularly. The condition and tightness of the drive belts, hoses and clamps should be checked – this needs to be done by a professional so bring it to your local Concorde branch!

2.    Air-Conditioning

Nobody wants to spend time in a hot and stuffy car so it is worthwhile getting your air-conditioning system re-gassed. You can book an air-con recharge for just £39.95 with Concorde.   Our auto technicians will check your air-con system using state of the art test equipment to detect any leaks or damage to your system and provide you with a quote for any replacements required.

3.    Tyres

It is recommended you check your tyre pressure at least once a month. A recent survey showed that 40% of British motorists never check their tyre pressures.  At Concorde we offer a free tyre check and free inflation service once per month if you bought the tyres from us. Call your local branch for more info.

4.    Windscreen and wipers

Sudden heavy rain showers and storms can catch drivers out in summer. It is important that wiper blades are in top condition. Worn wipers must be replaced.  Always keep washer fluid topped up as dry, dusty conditions and the glare of sunlight can hamper visibility.

Here at Concorde we offer free summer health checks that ensure your vehicle is ready for the hot weather. Call your local branch for more information.

"Had my engine rebuilt, turned a dreadful experience into a bearable one. Was kept informed throughout the job, everything was explained to me in simple understandable terms (as I'm not mechanically minded) and the price quoted was the price I paid. Fixed 1st time on time. I was very impressed with both service and the price, spending that sort of money I rang everyone to get the best deal. I found the service exceptional and will return time and again. Have already sent family and friends in and they have also received the same level of satisfaction."
