Honda dealers* around Ireland are inviting drivers of any car make or model to visit their premises to avail of a vehicle Health Check free of charge between now and the end of October 2009. Participating Honda dealers will offer this check without any obligation to the customer. Those availing of their complimentary Health Check will receive a free warning triangle for use in the event of a break down.
This vehicle Health Check will examine 18 points of the vehicle. These include external and internal lights; air conditioning and heated rear window; wipers, the condition of tyres and tyre pressures as well as battery, exhaust and suspensions.
The check will be free of charge to the registered owner of any car make or model who avails of this offer by making an appointment for the test with any participating Honda dealer during October 2009. However, it should be noted that the test is not a representation of the vehicle roadworthiness as further checks may be necessary to determine the exact extent of repairs required. Also, it should not be read as a substitute or pre-test for the NCT test.
“It is the time of year to have the car checked as we approach winter” said John Donohoe, After Sales Director, Universal Honda. “The check is a gesture by participating Honda dealers to get drivers to check their cars from a road safety point of view. If any dangerous defects are identified during the test, the customer will be advised and, while under no obligation to do so, s/he will be advised to rectify such defects as a matter of urgency”, he added.
