Read our top tips for improved winter car safety and performance below…

Car Servicing and Repairs

Booking in for full car servicing before the weather turns bad is the best way to prevent breakdowns and avoid performance issues during the winter. We are well known in Longfield for being both a BMW specialist, as well as Land Rover specialists and Range Rover specialists, but we can undertake car servicing and repairs on all models – not just BMW, Land Rover and Range Rover repairs!

A service includes checks to keep your vehicle in the best possible condition:

  • Fluid Checks, Top-Ups and Changes
  • Engine Inspections
  • Engine Diagnostics
  • Brake and Safety Checks
  • Inspecting Wheels and Tyres
  • Booking a Mega Flush with a Service

Because we are thorough with our car servicing, we can recommend extra work or repairs. As a trusted independent garage, we deliver reliable services, from Range Rover repairs to ECU programming, and supply quality new or reconditioned parts with attractive warranties.

Automatic Gearbox Repairs

Automatic gearboxes are popular with many motorists in the Longfield area, but it is important to keep them in good condition. Automatic gearboxes often have a maintenance-free label, but they still require periodical checks to sustain performance. Also, a mega flush keeps your transmission fluid clean. Dartford Transmissions and Autocare Ltd can undertake automatic gearbox repairs to get your car running smoothly again ahead of the winter months.

Mega Flush Services

As discussed in the passage above, a professional mega flush service resolves and prevents problems with automatic transmission systems and instances of automatic transmission failure. As both a BMW specialist, independent Land Rover specialists and Range Rover specialists we recommend a periodic flush to keep your gearbox working as it should. A mega flush replaces up to 99.9% of original fluids.

When preparing your vehicle for a winter in Longfield, a mega flush is an ideal choice for minimising the risk of transmission failure in cold, dark conditions. It can also reduce the potential for manual or automatic gearbox repairs. We offer this service as a BMW specialist, Range Rover specialists, and Land Rover specialist, and cater to makes and models from the world’s leading car and LCV manufacturers.

Battery Checks

During the winter, your battery is subjected to cold temperatures, and these can reduce electrical output. You will also use the lights, heater and blower more during the winter, placing the battery under additional strain. It is very important to keep your battery in good condition and fully charged. Our trusted independent garage can check your battery for you and replace it; it’s in fact one of the most common Land Rover repairs we undertake for Longfield motorists, alongside ECU programming.

We check and change batteries as a standalone service, or if car servicing or the MOT test indicates a possible drain that could cause issues during the winter. Our services in Longfield ensure all vehicles run as they should, giving you the peace of mind that your car will run well even in the coldest conditions.
