As we sadly wave goodbye to summer and start to look ahead to dark and cold winter days, it's important to make sure that our cars are in perfect condition to handle the harshest of UK winter conditions.
Your vehicle has to endure the effects of cold temperatures, icy and damp starts as well as salt and grit from the road. All these elements combined can put additional strains on your vehicle and its reliability during the winter months.
To help motorists get through this, Vauxhall MasterFit has announced a comprehensive Winter Safety Check & Top Up, which will include a 25 point visual safety inspection of your vehicle in addition to the topping up of all vital fluids and tyre pressures - all for just £35.
Dave Elder from Vauxhall Aftersales comments: "Maintaining your car with regular servicing and checks is vital to ensure trouble free motoring and this is particularly true during the winter. Our comprehensive Winter Check & Top Up, undertaken by highly trained technicians who understand your vehicle, will help reduce the chances of incident and breakdown during the harsh months ahead."
In addition, every motorist who comes in for a Winter Check at their local MasterFit centre will receive a free Winter Car Care Pack, worth over £12. The pack includes all the essentials you need to help you cope with the winter months ahead and contains a window de-icer, screen wash anti-freeze and clearview solution, an ice scraper and de-misting pad.
