Avoiding sub-standard surfaces when driving can be difficult, and you may have suffered a punctured tyre or, even worse, a buckled wheel.
However, punctures and buckled wheels are immediately identified and can be repaired before further damage occurs. But what about the less obvious damage potholes can do to your car?
The geometry of your car keeps it driving in a straight line - if it is out of alignment it can cause tyres to wear unevenly and increase your car’s fuel consumption. And it can be put out of line by exposure to potholes and uneven surfaces.
At Porsche Centre South London we offer a full geometry check to identify if any adjustments are needed, so you can avoid the risk and expense of repairing damage in the future. The check is available for £50 plus VAT.
If you are interested in making an appointment for a geometry check for your Porsche, please call 0208 2696 333 to speak to our Aftersales Team.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2017 certain new cars have been type approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. From September 01, 2018 the WLTP will replace the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). Due to the more realistic test conditions, the fuel consumption and CO₂ emission values determined in accordance with the WLTP will, in many cases, be higher than those determined in accordance with the NEDC. This may lead to corresponding changes in vehicle taxation from September 01, 2018. You can find more information on the difference between WLTP and NEDC at www.porsche.com/wltp.
Currently, we are still obliged to provide the NEDC values, irrespective of the testing method used. The additional reporting of the WLTP values is voluntary until their obligatory use. As far as new cars, (which are type approved in accordance with the WLTP) are concerned, the NEDC values will therefore be derived from the WLTP values during the transition period. To the extent that NEDC values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual handling, can affect the fuel consumption, electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions and performance values of a car.
