When buying or leasing a brand new car, you obviously pay a premium to be the first one who drives it on the road. While some drivers don�t want a used car, they would consider buying a pre-registered, ex-demo or a nearly new car in the knowledge that, whilst the car is not brand new, there are serious cost and value advantages to considering cars that still have that new car smell but not the new car price tag. Let�s have a look at what the terms actually mean:
Your car is built to go the extra mile for you but the fact is that every car�s engine is a machine which needs some care. In today�s time-limited world, an often neglected area is the regular checking and replacing of fluids in your car � but the process itself is relatively easy and it�s, strangely, quite satisfying knowing that you have topped up all the fluids and your car�s engine is ready to roll and take whatever is thrown at it.
Living in the UK makes choosing the right tyres for your car an interesting dilemma. We have a temperate maritime climate which means that our summers are cooler than the continent but our winters are also warmer. Choosing car tyres is not as simple as buying snow or winter tyres in the late autumn and using them during the winter and then switching to summer tyres for the spring and the warmest part of the year. That�s before you even get into the question of using cheap tyres or premium tyres for your vehicle.
We all know that dreaded feeling. It�s a cold, dark morning; there were clear skies last night�you open the front door, walk towards the car and your heart sinks as you see the thick ice all over the windows, the windscreen and even in the door locks! It�s going to be a very cold 10 or 15 minutes getting this car defrosted and safe to drive!
