How cool is your car? We are not talking about street cred, but whether your car’s cooling system is fit to tackle the demanding conditions of winter motoring without leaving you stranded by the roadside.
Flat batteries may still be the cause of most roadside breakdowns, but cooling system failures are the reason thousands of motorists grind to a halt each winter.
Cracked hoses, sticking thermostats and lack of antifreeze can cause major engine problems, so why risk the chance of your engine seizing up this winter?
Vauxhall MasterFit Centres around the country are offering owners of Vauxhall cars and small vans a WinterCare inspection designed to detect any problems before they occur.
For just £45 it includes a comprehensive series of cooling system checks and a six month warranty to provide owners with the peace of mind that any subsequent problems will be put right free of charge.
Vauxhall cars up to 10 years old with under 100,000 miles are eligible, plus Astravan, Combo and Corsavan. The WinterCare warranty is available from Vauxhall Retailers and MasterFit Centres until 31 March next year.
At the same time WinterCare customers will also enjoy a 10 per cent discount on a vast range of practical and lifestyle accessories and gifts designed specially to complement the Vauxhall range.
The WinterCare warranty is supported by free 24 hour Vauxhall Accident Support, which provides a number of peace of mind benefits such as scene of accident advice, a message relaying service and onward travel arrangements.Published 6 October 2004
