it does say they do screen wash etc so maybe worth while just for that don't you think?

then you will neednew brake pads ...a tyre maybe 2.....oil leak needs fixing .....etc etc

It took them a hour and a half to fit 2 tyres for me time they lost the tyres and messed around trying to find other work that didnt need doing. It wasnt worth the £10 savings.

​Well if you can't do your own I suppose it is just prepare yourself for getting told your car is a death trap which needs brakes pads discs tyres etc etc etc

What do we check?

With a Halfords' winter car health check we look at 6 things:
•Battery
•Light bulbs
•Windscreen
•Wiper blades
•Screen wash levels
•Oil levels
........
Hardly seams worth it. Other than the battery check, which most garages do for free, you should be doing the other things yourself on a regular basis.

You can get a litre of screen wash for about 96p delivered via eurocarparts

​A winter check that doesn't include a tyre tread depth check? Really?

Do it yourself it don't don't take long to do

I have them fill up my washer fluid every year, normally just before my MOT.

​All of which a responsible driver would check at least weekly without the need for a 3rd party.
