SUMMER DRIVING MUSTS

With British weather being as unpredictable as it is, when the sun comes out and heat ramps up, we all love to go out and enjoy it. But becasuse they can happen so quickly, we often don't take the correct precautions when driving to deal with it. Heat can have a huge impact on how your BMW performs. So take your time and consider our summer checklist for the road this season:

  1. Prepare your vehicle, top up your screen wash and check functioning before setting off
  2. Know your journey and should you not have Sat Nav, be aware of alternative routes you could take due to traffic or diversions
  3. Ensure you have plenty of fuel in the tank to compensate for any required detours
  4. Check your engine oil, sufficient oil helps regulate the temperature of your engine on long journeys
  5. Increase the distance between you and the vehicle in front to compensate for any sudden braking ahead
  6. Take your time when accelerating/decelerating to ensure maximum effeciency in the heat
  7. Know your brakes, ensure your brake pads have sufficient depth. This can be checked on a free vehicle health check by our technicians.*
  8. Ensure you have sufficient tyre tread and they are correctly inflated as heat can increase pressure
  9. Keep it cool. Long journeys can be uncomfortable in the heat. If you have not had an air conditioning service within the past two years, it will not be performing to its potential.  
  10. Keep a pack of essentials, just in case: Screen wash top-up, Top-up oil, Phone charger, Spare tyre/tyre sealant, AdBlue

Customer Feedback

Recently purchased a car from BMW in Blackpool. The service throughout was fantastic. All the staff were very knowledgable about the cars and were very helpful. But special thanks must go to Lee Baines who was professional yet friendly throughout the process and did over and above to ensure a smooth transaction. He was extremely courteous. I would highly recommend Lloyd's BMW in Blackpool
