Winter Maintenance Advice

With the cold winter months fast approaching, it’s important to consider whether your vehicle is ready. It doesn’t matter which vehicle you have or the amount of driving you do, winter vehicle maintenance isn’t something that should be overlooked. If it is, you could find that the ice and cold is too much for your car to handle.


Is Your Vehicle Ready for Winter?


  • Check Your Tyres – It’s important that your tyres provide enough grip on the road during the winter, as ice and rain can cause skidding and slipping. This is why you should check that your tyres have enough tread. Alternatively, you can swap to specialists winter tyres.


  • Create a Winter Breakdown Kit – Though you can breakdown at any time of the year, breaking down in the winter is a lot more common as the roads are more hazardous and vehicles struggle with the additional strain of the cold weather. It’s important to have a winter breakdown kit to hand, to ensure that you are safe and warm whilst you wait for assistance. A winter breakdown kit should include food, water, a torch, a blanket, a scraper and some form of de-icer. After all, you don’t know how long you’ll be waiting.


  • Check the Battery – It doesn’t matter how new your battery is, there’s always the chance that it can fail when the temperature drops. To avoid being stranded and unable to drive, check the battery and replace it if necessary. Even the best batteries can struggle in winter.


  • Have Your Car Professionally Serviced – Make sure that your vehicle is safe to drive this winter with a professional car check. This will allow you to relax, knowing that an expert has checked everything over before you head out and drive.

I brought my BMW here a number of times now, so my feedback is based on a cumulative experience, not just one-off. There are standard car services out there - you know, the ones which will try to do a minimum work to "cover" issue symptoms, get paid and move on to a next customer. And there is Mike Harding's one. Who always strives to resolve the problem entirely, not just to cover it up. Who provides a detailed report with empirically proven underlying cause and steps taken to rectify it. Do you want to pay less... but a few times? Choose other service. Do you want to pay a fair price once and really forget about your problem for good? I suggest you speak with Mike.

I cannot fault the fantastic team at Harding Auto Services! I needed some major repair work done on my Landrover Defender and they were helpful and kept up communication the entire time (my vehicle was with them for approximately two weeks). When it came to specifing what work needed to be done and the overall cost they were completely transparent so there were no "nasty surprises" when the job was finished. They obviously know what they are doing with classic Landrovers and I will 100% recommend them to anyone!
