The harsh weather means that motorists will be required to adapt their driving style in order to try and avoid any accidents over the winter period. Icy roads, poor visibility and a lack of vehicle care could all lead to a potential breakdown.

Car Loan 4U Co-Director James Wilkinson commented:

“Whether you are struggling to get the car out of the drive or the engine cuts out whilst driving, no one enjoys breaking down, especially during the winter months.

“It can be a daunting and dangerous experience if motorists don’t act quickly to take the right measures and precautions. For example, just making a few essential checks before jetting off could save you time and trouble.

“The simple fact of life, however, is that some cars are unreliable and are at risk of breaking down anytime. If you’re in need of a new car for the New Year, a cheap car loan could help.”

Car finance experts, Car Loan 4U offers top tips on what to do when you breakdown.

Pull over

The first and most important thing to do if your vehicle breaks down is to pull over to a secure location. If this is not an option, pull over as far to the left as possible to avoid being a danger to other road users. *

Hazard lights

Another vital thing to do very soon after experiencing a breakdown and pulling over is turning your sidelights and hazard lights on. This serves as a warning to other road users of the potential issues with your vehicle.

Get out of the car     

Get yourself and any passengers out of the vehicle through the left side, away from the road. Leave animals in the vehicle unless it is an emergency.
