With the festive season around the corner, it’s a time to take that much-needed break and reflect on the year’s up’s and down’s and spend time creating memories with those nearest and dearest! FASA member AAAS has given us some tips to make sure your vehicle is safe and ready for that holiday trip – whether you’re heading for the bush, a scenic retreat in the mountains, or a blissful beach holiday at the coast.
“Millions of South African motorists will take to the highways to get to their favourite holiday destinations this festive season. A holiday is intended to be a time for relaxation and enjoyment, but the difference between pleasure and a dreadful holiday often depends on whether you take the time to prepare your vehicle for the trip. Many common vehicle problems can be picked up by inspecting your vehicle, listening for strange noises, noticing unusual odours or even sensing a difference in the way a vehicle drives;” says Hugo Grobler, National Franchise Manager at Auto Care Diagnostics, (ACD).
