To avoid breaking down it is best that you are aware of the main reasons why cars break down in the first instance. A lot can go wrong with a car if it is not looked after correctly and if you are going to be travelling over summer and spending lots of time in your car then you need to make sure it is road safe before you head out.
If you’ve got a problem with your battery, there’s a good chance it’ll be down to lots of short journeys or a poor electrical connection. Battery faults are the most common cause of breakdown.
When your car is serviced, we will check that connections are secure and that the battery terminals are clean and protected from corrosion. If you don’t make long journeys very often, your battery won’t have had much chance to charge.
The clutch cable is under a lot of stress. And if it breaks, it can be a serious problem. It’s best to get it checked if you notice any change to the way the clutch feels when you press the pedal. If your clutch cable does break, pull over in the nearest safe spot and call us on 01282 696351. We can arrange collection from the roadside, to get you home or get you to Barrowford MOT Centre safely.
