What’s included in a Gold Winter Health Check – £29.99

Vision Windscreen glass treatment application – Vision glass treatment dramatically improves wet weather driving
visibility and makes it easier to clear ice, snow and dirt from the car’s windscreen.

Wiper blades and windscreen washer fluid – Shorter days and bad weather mean that visibility on the road is even
more important. We’ll inspect your wiper blades to ensure they are free of splits and damage. In addition, we’ll check your windscreen wash system and top up your screen wash.

Motor oil – To ensure your car performs at it’s best, we check the engine oil level and condition.

Bulbs – We’ll examine all bulbs to ensure they’re functioning correctly for good visibility on the road during those
foggier and darker drives.

Battery – We’ll thoroughly check the condition of your battery making certain that connections are clean, tight
and corrosion-free or, if necessary, replacing the battery.

Coolant – Your engine’s coolant level should be checked regularly to avoid causing serious damage to your engine.
During the winter months, it is essential to check your anti-freeze levels as water alone can freeze rendering your
coolant system useless.

Tyres – Tyres are essential in keeping you safe on the roads especially during the winter months with the risk of snow
and ice. Part of our winter safety check will include an inspection of your tyres overall condition, tread depth and
pressure.

Tips for driving in winter

Go easy on the clutch – reduce your chance of skidding by being gentle. Power will be delivered to the wheels more smoothly.

Be gentle with the throttle – in a front-wheel drive car (Aygo, Auris and Avensis are front-wheel drive), too much throttle makes your Toyota understeer, reducing the amount of grip.

– ABS helps improve control while braking – try not to panic if you start to skid. Keep your eyes focused on the point you want to reach and steer towards it.
