Maintenance Checklist

Winter Car Maintenance Checklist

Posted on

With winter coming faster than Santa falling through the chimney, W. Carey wants their customers to be safe when driving on the wintery roads. We recommend that drivers adhere to a basic car maintenance checklist before taking their vehicle out onto the road, especially if you are driving home for Christmas.

These essential checks must be done routinely to ensure that the car does not suffer any breakdowns or potentially lead to any accidents. The Owner’s Manual offers drivers specific guidelines on these checks and will inform you when the car service is due. Alternatively, you can always book your car for a service at the garage for an interim servicing.

Basic Maintenance Checklist

1. Fluids

Checking your fluids (including fuel) before you start a long journey is vital, as you don’t want to leave it until the last minute when you need to top them up at the last moment. Make sure the screenwash system is fully functional – this is the law! It must be kept topped up regularly with good screenwash, preferably one that prevents freezing and clear away greasy grime. Before winter arrives, the antifreeze should be checked and topped up (See Water for more information).

2. Lights

Checking the condition of all the exterior lights on the vehicle is a law requirement for any vehicle in order to prevent accidents. By giving them a good clean and making sure that all the bulbs are working and to guarantee there are no cracks in the light casings.

3. Oil

This should be checked every two weeks by using the dipstick. This is a simple check, which is highlighted in the cars Owner’s Manual. This should be done before long journeys so as to ensure you don’t have any problems or suffer any breakdowns on the motorway!

4. Water

This should fundamentally be checked every week. This should be done when the car is off and the engine is cold. Check the coolant level is between the MIN and MAX marks, as lack of coolant can cause the engine to overheat and can cause serious damage.

5. Electrics

These can be a bit difficult to check yourself, so you can always take your car to your local garage to check the battery level. This is one of the most common causes of breakdowns on the roads, at any time of the year.

6. Tyres

An essential check to be done every two weeks, the pressures in your tyres should be checked. Low pressure can result in an increase in tyre wear and reduced control of the car when driving. It is also important to check for any cuts or wear and to check the tread is within the legal limit.

Posted on

BMW is celebrated for their style and superior engineering. With their latest 7 series, fans were not disappointed this year. Once again, BMW proved that they are the definitive masters of technology-led motor vehicle innovation. For garages that specialise in servicing BMWs, keeping up with the changes is a pleasure, not a chore. In this article, we look at what makes the BMW 7 Series so special.

Innovative Interior Technology 

BMW has innovated their engines to be more fuel efficient and they’ve improved the interior and exterior design. They are gaining praises for their technological achievements whilst maintaining the traditional comfort and values we all know and love. The new gesture control features are especially exciting–they allow the driver to control functions such as increasing the stereo volume and answering the phone with just hand gestures–super cool!!

Affluent Airline Experience

The most popular choice for the new 7 series range is the BMW 730d M Sport due to its mix of strong performance and refinement, as well as providing the traditional BMW hallmarks of  good fuel economy, handling and efficiency.  The 2016 model has been praised for it’s fantastic interior, design and technology. The new model for 2017 continues the luxury theme, taking inspiration from the aviation industry, delivering an airline-style travel experience while staying on the ground.

Carey Motor Engineers put training at the top of their priorities list. Whether your BMW is new, or a few years old, you want the most knowledgeable people working on your vehicle.
