    Free winter health checks from Scotlands Ash Garage

    Didcot’s award winning garage Scotlands Ash Garage is offering Oxfordshire motorists free winter vehicle checks as part of its drive to raise awareness of the potential hazards of winter driving and the need to operate a vehicle that is fully road worthy.

    Scotlands Ash Garage mechanics, based on Main Street, West Hagbourne, have voiced concerns in recent months at the poor quality of vehicle components on vehicles that have been subject to a full service at a discount price by national chains.

    Therefore, the Scotlands Ash Garage ‘while you wait’ winter check will comprise a thorough inspection of fluid levels including antifreeze, oil and screen wash, along with tyre tread depths and pressures to name but a few. If work is required, motorists will be consulted beforehand and a proper quote provided.

    The garage will also provide some practical advice on how to drive in difficult conditions, particularly vehicles with automatic gearboxes.

    Scotlands Ash Garage proprietor, Peter Welch, said: “Some of the roads around Oxfordshire can be extremely treacherous in winter conditions and so it’s essential that vehicles are roadworthy. Our winter vehicle check is about preventative maintenance and designed to save motorists money and hassle in the event of an unexpected breakdown due to the adverse weather conditions.”
