WITH the sudden drop in temperature comes a timely reminder that winter is on the way.
And to support its customers Subaru UK has today launched an offer to owners of its vehicles.
The Japanese carmaker is offering free winter vehicle checks and will top up essential fluids as necessary for all Subaru models through its dealer network.
Research undertaken by the Automobile Association (AA) found that around 80 per cent of roadside breakdowns were caused by fluid levels and suggests these could be eliminated if the necessary fluids were topped up regularly. So Subaru is offering to do this for its customers at no charge.
The inspections, carried out by trained Subaru technicians, includes checking tyre pressures, and topping up engine and gearbox oil, the engine coolant and screen wash. A full visual health check will also ensure that cars are operating to the best of their abilities.
Haydn Davies, marketing director of Subaru UK, commented: “Winter brings more hazardous driving conditions, with cold temperatures, damp or icy roads and poor visibility. Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system is already designed to keep our customers as safe as possible whatever the weather, while an enviable reliability record helps keep owners mobile, too. At the same time we like our dealers to have regular contact with our customers so we hope many of them will make use of this latest offer.”
Subaru UK’s latest offer for the season comes on top of the opportunity to store wheels and tyres at the dealer over winter, as part of the ground-breaking ETC aftersales package.
