Carry Out a Visual Inspection
By putting in just a little preparation work, you can vastly reduce the odds of a problem on the road. Mirrors, windscreen wipers and lights should all be inspected. You might also wish to make sure that your windows remain chip-free. Additionally, assess the pressure of your tyres and check for wear to make sure they can withstand the stress of the trip.
Based in Witney and serving Carterton and the surrounding locations, Mac’s Garage can replace faulty tyres, carry out MOT testing, car repairs, and DPF cleaning for better fuel economy. If six months have passed since your car’s last inspection, don’t hesitate to book an appointment for interim car servicing. We use the latest in vehicle diagnostics to troubleshoot problems before they have a chance to escalate.
Inspect Your Coolants
The last thing you want is a catastrophic breakdown on the motorway. To reduce the chances of this happening, make sure your fluids are topped up before a long drive and provide your vehicle with high-quality lubricants. These lubricants work to prevent friction within the components, extending their lifespan and keeping the need for car repairs at a minimum.
Never set out for an extended trip if your vehicle in the Carterton area is leaking fluid. An overheated engine is likely to make your vehicle break down altogether so visit our garage if you have any concerns. We will be thrilled to perform major car servicing, an annual requirement, and have a dedicated area for MOT testing.

Vehicle owners in the Carterton area should speak with a professional if they have any doubts regarding their brake pads.
