"Used this garage for Multipoint Inspections on all cars in family and few repairs / adjustments and can't fault them, especially the staff."
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"

knowledgeable & honest
"Didn’t even charge me as car issue was unresolveable but did a full breakdown- good lads, owe them a drink"
"Great value, friendly helpful staff. Will use again."
Tried and trusted
"I have used this garage for many years and have always found them helpful and friendly. The work has always been first class and good value for money. I always trust their advice."
Superb service as usual
"Although I only had an MOT on this occasion the staff kindly pumped up all my tyres that were somewhat low. This may be only a small thing but they didn’t need to do it. They always go the extra mile to please. This is my favourite garage by far."
"Well done D&G. Great service on collect and delivery. MOT check is really fast and reasonable!!"
Friendly and honest
"Put my '96 Volvo 850 in for its MOT and while I knew there would be some repairs to get it roadworthy the final bill was not something I could justify for an old banger. I wasn't pressured to take the work (which has been my experience in other places) and they were really friendly and approachable. Would take my next car there!"
The alternator plays a crucial role under the bonnet of your car. It converts the mechanical energy of the car‘s rotating crankshaft into electricity through a process of induction; put simply, it sends power to all the electrical elements of your vehicle.
One of the alternator‘s main functions is to keep your car battery charged, and so a car which is difficult or slow to start can be a sign of a faulty alternator. It also provides power to operate the car‘s lights and other electrical accessories. Therefore lights that seem too dim or blink erratically, and the red battery light glowing on the dash, are all signs that your alternator needs checking out.
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.
How can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Wells or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
