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!
