Getting your car MOT’d is one of them things you have to do. They are required by law to ensure your vehicle is roadworthy and safe to drive. Without a valid MOT certificate, your car insurance and road tax become invalid, so booking regular check-ups is an absolute must.
For Horsham motorists, Kevin Griffin Cars of Nightingale Road has long been the port of call for servicing, repairs, and of course, MOT’s. We spoke to the owner, Kevin Griffin, who said: “Getting your car serviced regularly is incredibly important to maintain the condition of your vehicle. It can increase your car’s life span and guarantee the best performance of your vehicle.
If you get your car checked regularly, you can also prevent minor defects escalating into large-scale problems. This will save you from having to undertake drastic and expensive repairs.”
Here are some basic tips for car maintenance between MOT’s:
Rotating your tyres – Swap the front and back tyres to even out the wear
Clean brake dust off regularly – It is normal for brake dust to accumulate on wheels and hubcaps. A damp sponge and clean cold water is the best way to get rid of this
Check your tyre pressures regularly – Low tyre pressure can affect fuel economy, performance and comfort.
