Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is to offer a free winter Express Vehicle Check service.
The 29-point Express Visual Check (EVC) aims to ensure vehicles withstand the rigours of the colder weather and help to prevent any serious problems occurring. This includes checks on key vulnerable areas such as tyres, wipers and lights. Vehicles will also receive a battery check.
As a thank you for visiting, drivers will be offered a warm drink in a complimentary thermal mug.
Every year national roadside assistance companies report an increase in breakdowns over the winter months - often due to poorly maintained vehicles. Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles is hoping to reduce this statistic by providing drivers with a free inspection before they head out onto the roads this winter.
Kevin Rendell, head of service and parts at Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles UK, said: ‘Ensuring your vehicle is safe for the roads throughout winter is extremely important to prevent accidents and breakdowns.
"We are providing these free checks as a preventative measure as minimising downtime is crucial for our customers."
The Express Visual Check is available at participating Volkswagen Van Centres until 28th February 2015.
