From Trusted Specialists In Wimbledon: Top Tips For Summer Car Maintenance

  1. Double-Check The Fluid Levels

Seasonal weather changes can lead to low power steering fluid, transmission fluid, coolant as well as windshield wiper fluid, making it important for you to check them all. You need to keep a watchful eye, especially on the coolant fluid before the heat of the season. This is important because the greatest cause of car breakdowns in summer is overheating. Taking your VW car to Volkswagen specialists Wimbledon to perform these checks is thus important.

  1. Get Your Oil Filter Changed

When was the last time you changed the oil? If it was a while ago, consider getting it changed since intense weather of any kind can put additional pressure on your oil and oil filter.

While the oil keeps the engine lubricated, the filter captures harmful dirt debris, along with metal remains which have made their way into the oil system. A clean oil filter indicates more materials are picked up, more materials getting picked up indicate cleaner oil and cleaner oil indicates a happier engine!

  1. Evaluate Your Wheel Alignment

Do you find your car pulling to one side, the steering wheel vibrating or the steering wheel off-centred when driving straight? Consider getting your car’s wheel alignment checked by leading Audi specialists Wimbledon. Wheels can get misaligned by general wear and tear in addition to run-ins with potholes, curbs and rough roads. Proper wheel alignment can help in extending the life of your tires, making for a smoother ride and saving you from a few bucks on gas.

  1. Check & Monitor Your Tire Pressure

Your tires deserve a proper check-up between hitting hidden potholes and dealing with difficult road conditions. The truth is that depending on the outside temperature, tires gain or lose pressure daily. For example, tires typically lose a few pounds of air every month in cold weather. So, you need to ensure that your tires (including the spare)

are well-inflated before hitting the road for a summer road trip.

So what are you still here for? Approach Skoda specialists Wimbledon and get your car checked serviced to ensure it runs smoothly all throughout summer!

Dear valued customer,

Vagtek Ltd are still operating in order to carry out essential repairs and breakdowns

In order to support the Governments direction we have implemented relevant precautions to support social distancing for those still in our workshop, along with the addition of updated protocols in our vehicle handover processes. We are offering a collection and delivery service so no additional travel is required other than our own. Payment can be made via an online payment portal to avoid contact if required.

Just last week the Government relaxed the MOT requirements for both commercial vehicles and passenger cars, with commercial vehicles having a 3 month exemption and passenger cars a 6 month exemption beyond their expiry date. Garages and repair shops, along with storage and distribution facilities, are clearly identified as exceptions to the mandatory business closures and our role as their lifeblood from a transport perspective remains equally critical, underlining our obligation in terms of mobility for customers who need their vehicles for essential travel.

In light of those circumstances, we at Vagtek Ltd have reduced our operation to essential repairs and breakdowns only so as to support our customers and fulfil our obligations to keep the country, including our key workers, mobile.
