VOLKSWAGEN Commercial Vehicles is offering van drivers a free Winter Health Check to help keep businesses on the road as temperatures plummet.
Weather forecasts predict the UK will be struck by the return of the “Beast from the East” in the coming weeks, which caused vehicle breakdowns to soar by 33% over a six day period last year.
The majority of winter breakdowns could be avoided with regular maintenance – as research reveals the most common causes of vehicle incidents include battery problems and defective tyres.
The Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Winter Health Check covers all potential cold weather pitfalls plus inspection of wipers, lights, transmission, exhaust, oil levels, brakes, suspension and coolant levels.
Owners can book a free check at their local Van Centre, up until February 28, to help beat the freeze with expert technicians carrying out the checks no matter how cold, dark or wet it gets.
