Good Garage Scheme helps motorists avoid winter chill

October 1st marks the start of the Good Garage Scheme’s campaign to help motorists avoid hitting the skids this autumn and winter with the launch of the Winter Check.

The comprehensive 20-point Winter Check aims to ensure motorists’ vehicles are in the safest possible condition for winter driving, where the changes in weather and road conditions can put extra strain on your vehicle. When having the Winter Check carried out on your vehicle, your garage will use the Winter Checklist to ensure all essential areas are covered, such as:

•    The condition and levels of antifreeze.
•    Engine oil.
•    Brake fluid.
•    Windscreens.
•    Wipers and lights.

Phil Dugmore, Technical Manager for the Good Garage Scheme, said: “The comprehensive Winter Check enables motorists to get expert advice on the condition of their vehicle from member garages before winter sets in.”

In addition to the Winter Check, the Good Garage Scheme have been publishing autumn driving blogs with tips on how to manage your car and driving during the transition into winter.

Motorists can easily find their nearest Good Garage Scheme member offering a Winter Check by visiting the website – and ensure their vehicles are in the best possible condition ahead of the onset of cold weather.
