Car Maintenance Tips & Advice from Foster & Heanes

As winter approaches and the weather changes, there are more potential hazards for motorists such as wetter roads and fallen leaves making surfaces slippery.

It’s always essential to make sure your brakes are in good condition and never more so than at this time of the year. You could experience obvious signs that your brakes need some attention as your brake light may appear on the dashboard, or you feel your car is taking longer to stop than it ought to.

Standing by the side of the road waiting for breakdown recovery is something we’d all rather avoid.

To help you enjoy trouble free motoring, we’ve identified some of the most common causes of breakdowns and shared our expert advice on how to avoid these scenarios.

All cars make noises from time to time – but when you hear an odd knocking noise coming from your vehicle, should you take it seriously?

First, check to see that it’s not some random object rolling around in the car. We’ve all been alarmed to hear something rattling at the back only to find it’s a discarded child’s toy under the seat!

Giving the car interior a good spruce-up is a chore for many, and often a job that gets left until you can’t bare the crumbs of food, clogs of mud and rubbish in the door pockets any longer. People often say, you can tell a lot about a person by the type of car they drive, and the condition they keep it in. Probably best not to dwell on that point for too long!
