It’s just about that time of the year where we pack up the trusty auto, gather the rug rats and head ‘douth’  (or down-south for the uninitiated). Most of us would have had our car serviced in the last year but it’s always a great idea to give it a once over before you head off on a long journey. The last thing you want on a hot summer day is to be broken down on the side of the road with screaming children and no-air-conditioning.

We’re pleased to announce RAC will be teaming up with the City of Swan and City of Stirling to provide FREE basic car checks.

It’s not a detailed vehicle exam so if you have a serious problem that you’re already aware of it’s best to head to a mechanic’s workshop or bring it in to RAC Auto Services – If you’re an RAC member you’re entitled to a 30min free fault diagnosis at our workshops.

As an extra bonus, if you have a child car seat that you have installed and you’re not too sure about it, bring it down to our checking station at Centrepoint this Saturday and one of the qualified child car restraint fitters will double check that you’ve installed it correctly and that you’re using the right seat for your child.
