Your free 5-point car health check

Looking after your car is tricky for most people, especially if you've got a million things on your plate or if you're not really sure what you're doing.

But Halfords can help - our fully-trained team can give your car a free health check to make sure it's in top condition.

What do we check?

With a Halfords car health check we look at 5 things:

  • The battery
  • Light bulbs
  • Windscreen wipers
  • Oil levels
  • Screen wash levels

Why do we check these 5 areas?

All 5 areas are common problems - they affect us all and are crucial to your car's performance and your safety. It's important to know that:

  • a battery failure is one of the main reasons why people call a breakdown service, so looking after your battery will save you time and money.
  • driving with broken or faulty lights is illegal and bulbs break all the time.
  • believe it or not, your car needs oil just as much as it needs petrol. Too much or too little can cause serious damage.
  • when you're driving in bad weather, the last thing you want to worry about is poor visibility. Healthy wipers and loads of screen wash are vital.
