Make sure your VW is 'Ready for Summer'

Even if the sun isn’t shining quite as brightly as we’d hoped or indeed, at all, many of us are still using our Volkswagen’s air conditioning system to keep cool now that ‘summer’ is here.  To ensure your car’s system is running efficiently, and smelling its sweetest, Volkswagen is including an air conditioning check and disinfect in its new Summer Health Check offer.

If moisture builds up in a car’s ventilation system it can lead to the growth of bacteria which may mean the system doesn’t smell as fresh as it might.  When Volkswagen’s trained technicians carry out a Summer Health Check, available until 30 September across the brand’s UK Retailer network, they disinfect the air conditioning system, which has the added benefit of helping to optimise airflow.

The Summer Health Check involves a 34-point express visual review to flag up any maintenance concerns, while the service also includes a clean and vacuum of the vehicle before it is handed back.  As well as enjoying a more fragrant summer on the road, the Volkswagen driver will also enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having their car checked by their local Volkswagen Retailer.

Meanwhile, a wide variety of genuine accessories and merchandise can further equip Volkswagen cars for outings during the summer months*.  For instance the Cool and Thermos Box is perfect for keeping picnic food at the right temperature, powered as it is via the vehicle’s 12-volt supply.  It can be secured safely, too, using a tailor-made three-point harness.

Volkswagen also offers an accessory picnic blanket with ‘Bulli’ heritage Volkswagen camper van branding for those al fresco dining expeditions.  And there’s an extensive selection of Volkswagen roof boxes available, too, with aerodynamically-optimised designs to help minimise wind noise.  Available in 340-litre or 460-litre sizes, there’s a roof box to match the required luggage capacity of almost any summer holidaying family.
