Checking your tyres
Your owner’s manual will have the recommended tyre pressure for your car, or the recommended pressures will be listed on your vehicles B-Pillar/Drivers door. You should check it when your tyres are completely cold and try to use the same pressure gauge each time. That way you’ll have a better idea whether the pressure loss is a tyre problem or a difference between gauges.
While you’re checking your tyres, look out for anything unusual. Any bumps, bulges, cuts, splits, cracks, or threadbare areas can cause you problems on the road. If you spot any of these, you should bring your car in for us to look at, as soon as possible.
Spare tyre and repair kit
If your car has a spare tyre, make sure it’s in good condition and your tyre repair kit hasn’t passed its expiry date.
Try and make at least one longer trip a week.
You can use a charger to make sure it’s in its best condition.
Make sure your map lights are turned off and all your doors are closed.
Put your dipped beam headlights on day & night to encourage the alternator to work harder, therefore boosting charge to the battery.
The right amount of oil is essential for keeping your engine running, so make sure you check it regularly. We recommend you do it whenever you refuel and always before a long journey. You should even check your oil when you car is new, as the engine canconsume more than you think in the running-in period. Check your owner’s manual for all the details.
