Looking after your car can be tricky, especially for those with busy schedules or if you're just not sure what to look out for. The winter is especially hard on cars, so it's even more important than normal to keep up with vehicle maintenance.

If you want peace of mind on the health of your vehicle, whatever the weather, Halfords are here to help. Our fully-trained team can give your car a free check* including an inspection of your car battery and the condition of your wiper blades to make sure it's in top condition.

What do we check?

In our free 5-point car check, our experts will review:

  • The health of your battery
  • Your headlights and brake lights
  • The condition of your wiper blades
  • The condition of your windscreen
  • Your MOT due date

Why do we check these five areas?

All five 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 car battery will save you time and money.
  • Driving with broken or faulty lights is illegal - and dangerous!
  • When you're driving in bad weather, the last thing you want to worry about is poor visibility. Healthy wiper blades and a a chip-free windscreen are vital.
  • An MOT is an annual legal requirement and one that’s easy to forget so we’ll remind you.

For a more thorough check, including tyres and oil levels, you can upgrade to our 10-Point Car Health Check for just £15.
