As we approach the festive season a lot of us will need to service our vehicles because we will driving them to our holiday destinations and back. So we at CMH Mitsubishi The Glen have compiled a holiday checklist that we are more than happy to do for you in our Service Department.
Nothing ruins a holiday like a breakdown, so it’s important to make sure that your vehicle is inspected prior to departure by our highly qualified Technicians. We will pay special attention to mechanical and electrical systems, as these can be very costly to repair once broken.
Oil and water checks
This is something offered to us whenever we top up with fuel, but is an option we seldom take up. It’s important that you keep tabs on both your oil and water, as a lack of either can cause significant damage to your engine. Our Service professionals will ensure that your vehicle is topped up according to the vehicle’s requirements.
Correctly inflated tyres are not only a safety requirement but can also improve fuel efficiency by about 4%. It’s also important to bear in mind that, should you be carrying a heavy load, you’ll probably need to pump them up a little bit more than usual. If you’re unsure of the correct inflation pressures, look on the inside of the driver’s door jamb or under the fuel filler flap for a tyre pressure chart. Should you not know exactly where to find the chart, one of our trained Service staff will gladly show you.
While it’s important not to use your phone while driving, your mobile device can be a lifesaver in the event of an emergency. Not only is it your lifeline to outside assistance, but it can also help you to navigate your way out of unknown or dangerous areas thanks to built-in GPS technology. So make sure to invest in a car charger for those long journeys.
We at CMH Mitsubishi the Glen would like to wish all of our CMH Family a happy festive season and should you need any assistance with your vehicle this holiday season, please do not hesitate to contact any of our Services Advisors, Service Manager or New Vehicle Sales Manager!
