How to Avoid Breakdowns this Spring

For us at Cambridge Car Solutions we are heading into our favourite time of year. That point where we can put the dreaded winter behind us and the fatal recoveries due to wintery weather are finally over for a while. We have been quite fortunate this year with the weather with ice and snow at a minimum, however, we all know that vehicle breakdowns can happen any time of year and we need to ensure we still take the necessary precautions to avoid them.

It’s a known fact that when we are in a rush we are not as cautious as normal and can be very careless. Checking we have switched the lights off before leaving our vehicles only takes a matter of seconds and could save you a lot of time in the long run rather than having a flat battery.

With petrol prices still steep, filling up our tanks is something we may put off a little while longer to make those pennies stretch further. However, when the petrol tank is low, the engine is having to run off fuel that is mixed with the deposits that remain in the tank and it is of a very poor quality which not only reduces performance but damages the engine. Or even worst case scenario you could run out of fuel.

Battery faults are the most common causes of car breakdowns and this should be monitored to ensure that the battery is of good condition. You do not need to be a car expert to maintain a good car battery, this is an item the garage should check when carrying out your service. You can be responsible by ensuring your car is serviced regularly and by a reputable garage.

Finally, if you find yourself in the situation where you need vehicle recovery services, contact us at Cambridge Car Solutions. We are available 24/7 and will come out to you as quickly as possible to get you back on the road to your destination.
