A holiday check is better than a shock on holiday
Would you have known? The poor condition of around one in four vehicles makes these a hazard to everyone on the road. So it is always a good idea to have a holiday check done on your car by Bosch Car Service before setting off. It does not cost much to obtain reliable information on whether your vehicle is safe to drive on holiday. By doing so you can avoid not only accidents and annoying breakdowns, but also unnecessary fines and the risk of having to stop for repairs en route. Nonetheless, a basic check of this type can never be a substitute for regular maintenance and inspection work at the intervals specified by the manufacturer. Because only experts know where the real danger may lie.
Our expert advice
Do you know what hygroscopy is? It is certainly not another word for travel sickness. It quite simply means that the brake fluid in your car is constantly absorbing water. If this reaches a level of more than 3%, vapor bubbles may develop at high temperatures and be compressed on braking. This hampers the build-up of sufficient brake pressure and in the worst case can lead to total failure of the entire braking system. Our recommendation: For your own safety have the brake fluid in your car changed every 2 years.
