Those hazy summer days where you could whip out the car wax and polish your prized possession to your heart’s content are not well and truly behind us and preserving your car in other ways should be at the forefront of your mind as we enter the colder months.
Indeed, the biggest threat to your motor’s slick exterior this winter may come from black ice as a nasty road accident is always possible this time of year and that could mean the end for your car’s lifespan.
Simon Elstow of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) says that that respecting the weather is key to winter road safety.
He added: “Being mentally prepared as well as having the right equipment is vital, so think about last year, what problems it caused you, and what you need to do to overcome them if they come this year.”
Rich White, of the Car Care Council, recently said that you need to check you wiper blades are working correctly and your headlights are clear before setting off on any journey during the next few months.
