Spring clean your car with regular servicing   Print  
The XPart AutoService centre network offers MG Rover and New MINI owners a high-quality service option at affordable rates. Monday, 15th February 2010

Motorists planning a spring service for their car following the recent cold snap can visit an XPart AutoService centre for a free vehicle health check to make sure their car is in good working order after the winter

As the country emerges from the recent bouts of harsh weather to enjoy the spring sunshine, motorists are advised to make sure their car is in good working order before setting off on long journeys. Car engines tend to suffer over the winter due to the extreme cold as they strain to reach optimum operating temperature. Additionally, grit on the roads can damage tyres and bodywork, and fluids levels can run low if not properly topped up during the winter months. With modern cars engineered to rely increasingly on Electronic Control Units (ECUs), many faults are now impossible to repair without the use of sophisticated diagnostic equipment, making regular servicing ever more important to efficient running.
