Almost every family across the United Kingdom has at least one car and this is the very thing that they rely upon to get the kids to school and back and to take mum to do the weekly shop. Due to the really poor climate that we experience here almost every day, the family car is the one thing that keeps us sane allows us to get on with our everyday life.
However you would be surprised at the number of people that seem genuinely disappointed when they put the key in the ignition and the engine doesn’t start. They curse the car and wish they had never bought it when it is their fault that it won’t turn over in the first place. This is why the government mandates MOT testing in Northampton to make sure that your car is in good mechanical order. The following are just two of the things that your mechanic will check for.
- Brakes and brake pads – These two things are essential if you and your family are to remain safe on the U.K.’s roads. We experience a lot wet weather gear and so your car needs to be able to stop quickly and easily.
- Oil and oil filter – Your vehicle will have to go through and emissions test in order to pass the MOT and so it is essential that the oil is changed in your car and the filter as well. Not only does this reduce emissions into the atmosphere but it also helps to protect your engine as well.
