Get your car serviced for spring
With the warmer days and longer evenings many of us will be tempted to take a weekend break or perhaps a trip abroad, but before you pack the car and head off into the sunset you should have your vehicle serviced.
The first task will be to check the tire pressure. It's critical to have properly inflated tires at all times as this assures the best possible contact between the tire and the road. Remember to check your manual to see if you need to adjust pressures to compensate for hotter conditions if you're heading to a warmer climate.
A tyre improperly inflated can get hot fast and can even lead to a blow-out, while those of you planning to head out on long road should also keep in mind that properly inflated tires will help improve petrol consumption.
Before a long trip it's also vital to check the water and oil in your car; quick and easy jobs that can make all the difference.

Here in the UK we never know when a downpour will strike, so also remember to inspect your wipers. Equally, dry roads can cause problems, with dust making your windscreen dirty very quickly, so checking you have enough windscreen washer is another must.
Finally remember to pack an emergency kit and have it stored in the car ready for an unexpected break down or even a particularly bad traffic jam. You should consider carrying a flashlight, jumper cables, extra windscreen washer and some basic tools for the car and a first-aid kit, extra clothes, food, water and paper towels for the passengers.
Of course, while you can do these little checks yourself you should always take your car to a reliable garage for a thorough service, especially if you have any specific concerns.
