Our Top 5 Vehicle Maintenance ‘Must Do’s’ from the Col Crawford Service Experts…. With April School Holidays commencing TODAY, for those planning a family ‘road trip’, ensuring your car is in order mechanically puts your safety first and can save you a lot of heartache (& money) if something went amiss along the way.

Follow our Top 5 vehicle maintenance checks to keep your car in perfect order between scheduled services. Special thanks to Andy Chloupek of our Brookvale Service Department for the tips. Andy has been with us for 10 years and is a Renault Master Technician and Nissan GT-R Technician. Your professionalism and expertise with your job role (& this post) is much appreciated!!

Check 1: Tyre Pressure – as a guide aim for 32psi for passenger vehicles but do check your owner’s manual for specifics. Tyre pressure can be checked at your local service station.
Check 2: Engine Fluids – focus on oil, coolant and windscreen washer fluid, making sure levels are topped up.
Check 3: Condition of your windscreen wipers – they may need new rubber inserts or new blades.
Check 4: Check all lights are working – Front headlights and rear tail/ brake lights are a must.
Check 5: Air-conditioning – a must on a long trip. Comfort is No. 1.
