Honda has introduced a new winter care programme, which includes a seasonal health check, a full winter service and the opportunity to purchase a pair of tyre snow socks.
Honda’s snow socks are tyre covers which are designed to be easy to use and provide a solution to help get drivers moving on snowy side roads. They can be kept in the boot and slipped on to the front set of tyres when needed. From £70 per pair, snow socks provide extra traction to increase grip on snow without causing noise or vibration while driving.
Once the car is back on a clear road, they can be simply removed and stored in the boot of the car ready for when they need to be used again.
“After several severe winters in a row, we are keen to ensure Honda customers are fully prepared and able to stay mobile where possible,” commented Dave Hodgetts, Managing Director of Honda (UK). “Snow socks offer the perfect combination of affordability and ease of use without the worry of where to store them.”
Honda is also offering customers who purchase a set of winter tyres a cost effective storage solution. For £35 + VAT, customers buying a winter set can place their spare ‘summer’ ones in secure storage. This cost covers a 12 month period and includes two tyre transfers to/from the Honda dealership – perfect for winter and summer changeovers.
Honda’s winter health check
Honda drivers can make sure their car is in tip-top condition for the cold weather by taking it to a Honda dealer for a reassuring winter health check. Qualified Honda technicians will inspect the battery, windscreen, tyres, brakes and lights, and will also ensure the engine coolant and screenwash are all filled up.
The winter health check costs just £40 and customers will receive a complimentary winter safety kit worth £24.99. This handy pack includes a foldable snow shovel, foil blanket, high-visibility vest and LED torch.
For that added extra piece of mind, drivers can book their car in for a full winter service. On top of an oil and filter change and checks across the car undertaken by a qualified technician, Honda are also adding a year’s complimentary UK roadside assistance worth £99.
