Despite the advances made in automotive technology over the years, we all know that cars are basically crude mechanical beasts at heart and, as such, liable to faults.
One thing we can do to keep ourselves as safe as possible on the roads this Easter - and through the ensuing colder months - is keep our vehicles regularly serviced. Chances are your trusty chariot has covered a fair few kilometres over the summer holidays, so when was the last time you checked the basics and gave it a bit of tender loving care? It never fails to come as a surprise when your household or work vehicle, which has gone the summer without the hint of a problem, gives up the ghost when you need it most. So your own holidays done, why not send your car off for a short, sharp rest cure at the mechanics? It might just repay you with a smoothrunning sunshine smile!
