Christmas is the best time of year. As the family gathers for a big feast, children play with their brand-new toys, with laughter and joy. Sadly, some families don’t get to enjoy those precious moments at Christmas.
The holiday period is one of the deadliest times on the roads. This makes it even more important to drive safely and ensure that every aspect of your car is in fine condition.
Your Holiday Checklist
December usually sees the temperature rise and people rush around for last minute Christmas shopping. Before you go away for your family holiday, it is important to ensure that your vehicle is in good driving condition. There are many things you can do to keep you and your family safe.
Book in a Service
This should be high on any holiday maker’s to do list. Before you begin to pack, book your car in for a service. As leading Canning Vale car service specialists, our perth mechanics offers a range of vehcile service options. We offer a comprehensive 12-months warranty or 20,00km – whichever comes first. We can also look at your car whenever you think it needs attention.
Check Your Tyres
Worn out tyres will put you at risk of a serious accident. On a hot summer day, travelling at high speeds with bald tyres is extremely dangerous.
At least 2-3 weeks before you head off, ensure your tyre tread is in good driving condition. If they are, the day before the trip is the best time to inflate your tyres. Under-inflated tyres are hazardous to drive with. Don’t risk it; ensure your tyres are in good condition before your next holiday. We have a great range of car tyres in Perth, including 4×4 tyres, Kumho performance tyres and commercial vehicle tyres.
Top up You Air-Conditioner
There is nothing worse than driving in stifling heat, especially if you are travelling with young children. Air conditioning systems can suffer from leaks and breakdowns. As a car repair specialist, we will inspect your air conditioning for any damage and top up the refrigerant gas in your AC.
Steering and Suspension
Your car’s steering and suspension must be in good working order to keep it steady on the road. Our local canning vale, perth mechanics will test the vehicle for suspension wear and tear. This includes:
- Ball joints
- Shock absorbers
We ensure that nothing will interfere with the suspension or the steering components of your car.
Fuel Injection Clean
Your car’s fuel system is prone to dirt and pollutant build-up. Having your car’s fuel system cleaned improves the transient throttle response. It also improves fuel efficiency and allows for cleaner exhaust emissions.
