With temperatures tumbling towards zero and warm summer days a fading memory, Volkswagen Retailers* are offering all drivers a comprehensive ‘Ready for Winter Check’ for safe, peace of mind motoring.
Winter conditions place much heavier demands on a car, with cold starts, plus increased use of heater systems, headlights and the rear demister taking their toll on a car’s well-being. With this in mind, it is wise to ensure that everything is in good working order.
The 19-point check involves a visual inspection of the car’s key operational systems and components, including the lights, oil, battery, cooling system, tyres and exhaust.
A written report is then produced for the customer, highlighting any potential problem areas.Check list
Not only is the Ready for Winter Check a safe and sensible idea, it is also a financially sound one. The small cost of the inspection** could translate into a significant saving later on, if, for example, a potentially major fault is diagnosed at an early stage.
In addition, fluid top-ups are included in the price of check. And should the Check reveal any worn or defective parts, the retailer will be happy to provide a quote and the option to have the work done at the customer’s earliest convenience. If the work is undertaken, then the cost of the Ready for Winter Check is refunded.
* At participating retailers only.
** Costs available on request from retailer
