Before you pack up the car, kids and dog and head out for the festive holidays soon, we’d like to remind you to make sure your car is ready for the journey.

Having a thorough pre-holiday inspection at your nearest e-CAR workshop will help you avoid the inconvenience and potential safety hazards of breaking down far away from home.

It’s easy to remember to get your family ready for the holidays, but what about preparing your car that’s going to get you there? Having a pre-holiday inspection performed on your car will give you peace of mind as you travel and help make your journey safer.

Before leaving home, let e-CAR check of the following, often overlooked, items:

  1. Tyres and tyre pressure, brakes, hoses and belts, air filters, wipers, exterior and interior lighting, and fluid levels, including engine oil, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze.
  2. A pre-holiday inspection provides the opportunity to have any service repairs made by your own trusted e-CAR technician who knows your car, and helps minimise the chance of costly and dangerous trouble on the road.
  3. The e-CAR Club also recommends that drivers keep important telephone numbers, including our 24hr assist number in their cell phone or cubby in case of a breakdown or travel emergency.

For a pre-holiday inspection book your car in at one of our many e-CAR workshops nationwide here.
