A1 Customer Service
"Was contacted by Stoneacre after making booking and told about a Multipoint check for £14.99 which included a free litre of oil to take away. From arriving to leaving the service was excellent and even shown around points of concern whilst vehicle on ramp. The garage did not have the free litre of oil suitable for my vehicle available and therefore did not charge me a penny for the inspection. A good print out showing what was inspected etc and areas of concern along with quotes was given too. Well done Stoneacre Goole. First class customer care even for something they did not receive any payment for. 10/10"

Air conditioning in a car does two things; first, it controls the temperature of the air in the car, and second, it removes some of the moisture in the air, providing a stream of dry air in the car. This helps to keep the inside of the car comfortable, no matter what the weather is doing outside.
You’ve probably noticed that you can clear a misted-up windscreen much faster in a car with air-con than in one with only a normal ventilation system. That’s because the conditioned air blown over the windscreen is nice and dry, so it can absorb the dampness fogging your windscreen.
An air conditioning check ensures that your system is running efficiently by testing its pressure. A drop in the system pressure results in insufficient cool, dry air being circulated inside the car. The garage will take a temperature reading via the car’s air vents to see whether a recharge is needed. This involves removing all the old refrigerant gas, and oil and leak detecting dye, then cleaning the whole system to remove any moisture. When the system has been cleansed it will need to have new gas and dye put in, and will then be re-pressurised.
Proton is a Malaysian car manufacturer which set up shop in 1983 on the orders of the then Malaysian Prime Minister, whose aim was for the country to build its own national car. Today Proton exports to more than 50 countries worldwide including the UK, where it has been selling vehicles since 2009.
One of the most popular Proton models currently sold in the UK is the Gen-2, a family saloon which also comes in an ‘Ecologic’ dual-fuel variant. This gives you the option to run the car on LPG, which will save you money on fuel costs. The other main current models on offer are the Savvy, an inexpensive compact city car, and the Satria Neo, a 3 door supermini.
Proton’s partnership with Lotus engineering has led to improved steering and cornering; the Gen-2 in particular gains plaudits from drivers for its comfortable ride. However, in general Proton drivers frequently report noisy engines, as well as bemoaning the interior’s rather cheap look and feel.
What do you need from your garage?
We all have different needs, and choosing a garage is no different. For some of us, it’s the quality of the overall service which matters most; not just the work that’s done under the bonnet, but the human interaction that comes with it. BookMyGarage allows you to compare Grays garages on everything from their waiting room refreshments or whether having your toddler in tow is going to be a problem, to how clearly the staff can explain the work your car requires.
