26 Tuesday October 10 2017 Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi SELWYN TIMES JONES ROAD ROLLESTON Vehicle maintenance is essential for safe reliable motoring When life is busy we may forget to have our motor vehicles serviced regularly, something that is just as important for a late model car as for one that is older. “Now that warrant of fitness checks have gone out to a year for late model vehicles many people mistakenly believe they need less maintenance and don’t worry about organising a service in between,” advises Simon Wilson, owner of Rolleston Diesel & Petrols. Regular servicing keeps a vehicle running smoothly and more reliable yet a myth prevails, that late model vehicles do not break down. Simon says more and more cars have been coming into their yard for repairs, having broken down due to a lack of maintenance. He says, a WOF is there to identify structural problems with the brakes, suspension and steering all checked to ensure the vehicle is safe for you, your family and other motorists. However, Simon reminds that a year can be a long time for a vehicle not to be serviced, maintained or have a safety check. This is especially true if a reasonable distance is travelled each day, the reality for many people living in Selwyn. Travelling short distances can also impact on a vehicle especially if it not warmed up, as it puts strain on the motor, increases fuel consumption, and affects the overall economy of the vehicle. Tell-tale signs such as the smell of oil may also be overlooked with an owner not realising that this could signify an oil leak. If left and not repaired, this could cause engine damage. A driver might also not realise the tread on the tyres is low or there is uneven wear, factors that can be a safety hazard. The team at Rolleston Diesel & Petrols are only too happy to check over your vehicle and regularly service it for you as well as look after its WOF checks when due.
