1. Schedule a Thorough Vehicle Inspection

Bring your vehicle to S&B Keswick’s service centre, where our industry-trained technicians will conduct a comprehensive inspection of the engine, battery, fluid levels, tires, and brakes. This meticulous check will ensure your vehicle is in optimal condition, preventing any unexpected issues during your journey. Our aim is to provide you with a worry-free road trip experience.

2. Fluid and Filter Inspection

Before you set off, check your car’s fluid levels and filters. Check whether the transmission fluid, coolant, engine oil and brake fluid are at the optimum levels to ensure smooth operation. Similarly, make sure to get the cabin and air filters cleaned and replaced to enjoy a comfortable and relaxed ride. 

3. Tire Maintenance

Your tires should be in top condition because they’re what literally keeps you going on a road trip. Check the tire pressure and, if need be, get them rotated for optimum balance and improved handling. Also, inspect any signs of wear and tear to get them fixed beforehand. Ignoring tire maintenance can lead to uneven wear, poor traction, and even blowouts, which can be dangerous and costly to fix on the road.

4. Brake System Service

You can’t compromise on your car’s brakes when you’re out because they’re your lifeline on the road. The technicians at S&B Keswick can inspect the brake pads, brake fluid and rotors and prepare them for your journey. 

5. Lighting System Maintenance

Ensure your car’s exterior lights and signals, including headlights, turn lights, taillights, DRLs and brake lights, are in proper working conditions to remain safe on the road. Poor visibility and communication with other drivers may lead to potential road threats.
