A new winter care program is now available to help ensure that Honda drivers are all prepared and mobile for the cold season. This winter care program covers a seasonal health check and a full winter service, as well as a chance to buy a pair of easy-to-use tire snow socks (tire covers) that could help drivers become more mobile on snowy side roads.
Honda’s winter health check – done at a dealership -- allows drivers to ensure that their Honda cars are in a good physical shape for the cold weather. Qualified Honda technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of the car’s battery, tires, windscreen, brakes and lights. They will also check whether the engine coolant and screenwash are full.
Available at just £40, the winter health check also includes a complimentary winter safety kit -- valued at £24.99 – that includes a foldable snow shovel, high-visibility vest, LED torch and foil blanket. A full winter service is also available, covering oil and filter change and checks as well as a year worth of complimentary UK roadside assistance worth £99.
Of course, this service is done by a qualified technician. Storable in the booth, the snow socks could be easily slipped on to the front tires when needed. When in use, these snow socks offer extra traction, thereby increasing grip on snow sans any noise or vibration. When not needed, these snow socks could be easily removed and stored back in the boot.
Customers could avail of these snow socks starting at £70 per pair. According to Dave Hodgetts, Managing Director of Honda (UK), these snow socks follow a series of severe winters and so the carmaker wants to ensure that its customers are fully ready and able to stay mobile. Hodgetts added that the snow socks offer the perfect blend of affordability and ease of use without having to worry about where to store them.
In addition, customers purchasing a set of winter tires are being presented with a cost-effective storage solution for just £35 + VAT. They are given the chance to keep their now spare ‘summer’ tires in secure storage. This storage solution is ideal for winter and summer changeovers as the deal covers a 12-month period and includes two tire transfers to or from a dealership.
