Getting Your Car Ready For Winter thumbnail

Regardless of the season, it’s important to keep your car in road-ready condition. In winter, it’s absolutely essential. The chilly season brings with it rain, ice, wind and snow, which can create significant hazards for the unprepared driver.

The good news is that there a number of things you can do to ensure your vehicle is ready for the challenges ahead. Here at Benington 4×4 Centre, our 36 years of experience in the automotive servicing industry have taught us a thing or two about getting cars ready for winter. Prepare your car for unpredictable winter conditions and stay safe on the roads with these five tips.

  1. Book Your Car in for a Professional Service

The number one way to get your car ready for winter is to book it in for a professional service. A lot of vehicle issues that arise in winter can be easily prevented with a good service, saving you both and time and money in the long run. At Benington 4×4 Centre, we’re proud to combine extensive automotive expertise with quality workmanship and competitive prices to deliver an unbeatable car service.

  1. Replace Worn Tyres

Perhaps the most important component of your car in the winter months is its tyres. Your tyres are the only points of contact your vehicle has with the road, so it’s vital that they have plenty of tread and provide good traction. Replacing worn tyres can give your car a better chance of sticking to the road in slippery conditions.

  1. Replace Faulty or Vulnerable Parts

Even the most well built cars will go through regular wear and tear over the years. If you suspect that certain parts of your car are damaged or at risk of becoming faulty, now is the perfect time to replace them. We offer an extensive range of genuine Land Rover parts that will keep your 4×4 running to its full potential over the winter months and beyond.

  1. Check Your Windscreen Wipers

Your windscreen wipers are one of the few things that can improve your visibility when driving. As such, it’s vital that you take the time now before the rainy season hits to test your wipers and check just how well they perform. Good windscreen wipers should be able to clear your entire windscreen, not just push the water around in a smudgy mess.

  1. Top Up Your Antifreeze

You don’t want to get stuck in the cold with a dead engine. With this in mind, remember to top up your car with antifreeze, which prevents the liquid in your radiator from freezing when the temperature dips below zero.


By being proactive, you can prepare your car for all the challenges that winter might throw your way.
