Volkswagen Summer Check Only £20

So what is our Summer Health Check?

Our Vehicle Health Check (VHC) (also referred to as a visual health check or electronic health check) is an important check of your car’s components, carried out by our skilled technicians.

A ‘traffic light system’ is used on each of the different check points to report whether your vehicle is:

Green: Safe and good to go

Amber: Recommended work that is required in next 6 months

Red: Requires urgent attention

Are Summer Health Checks mandatory?

VHCs are not mandatory. It is typically carried out alongside a repair, service or MOT, and is an extra service offered by us, for a small charge – as experts in vehicle maintenance we see it as our duty of care to check your vehicle’s key safety items while our skilled, qualified Technicians are working on it, giving us all peace of mind that your vehicle is safe and legal for the road.

What's included in our Summer Health Check;


• Lights

• Brakes

• Tyres

• Wiper blades

• Oil Level

Levels and Top ups

• Windscreen washer

• Antifreeze (water)


• Battery

• Air-conditioning function

The check points will be listed in a report, as well as a short video which will be sent to you explaining what has been checked during the VHC. If any amber or red components have been identified, this will also include the technician’s recommendations for what to do next.

How long does a Summer Health Check take?

Our Summer Health Check typically takes 30-40 minutes to complete which includes an exterior wash of the vehicle .

How much does a Summer Health Check cost?

Our Summer Health Check is a service offered for £20.00

What brands do we offer Summer Health Checks for?

We will do a Summer Health Check on any make or model.

If a Summer Health Check point is red, will you carry out repair work that day?

If a red check point has been identified during the VHC and we have been given your permission to carry out the repair work, we will do everything we can to get this done on the same day for you.

Most vehicle parts are available within our workshops. However, when a part is not readily available, we will order this as soon as we can (usually for next day delivery). In this instance, it is recommended that you leave the car with us until this arrives. Each of our dealerships has a select amount of courtesy cars available on request, and where one is not available, we will also do our best to offer a lift/collection service.
