Redlake - great service
"I've been using Redlake for 7+ years now, trust their workmanship and advise. Redlake is an 'Old school' garage where the mechanics are skilled, and not just process bods putting cars through MOT/ services.... would recommend"
Overall a great service
"Great staff, excellent customer service. Would’ve liked to have been contacted regarding a bulb needing replacement as I had a brand new bulb in the glove box, so ended up paying for another new bulb when I didn’t need to, though this is my only qualm with SM motors. Will definitely be using again"
"Very happy with service, done in good time."
"Friendly staff. Workshop looked smart & tidy. Everything went smoothly."
"I booked the car in and they dealt with it the next day. These people understand cars and are customer focused. Highly recommend them"
"This garage provides great end-to-end service from booking, through on-time vehicle collection, provision of required MOT and service with clear guidance and paperwork, to final delivery of the vehicle back to my home. There were no nasty surprises in charging. I would certainly commend the professionalism of service delivery and their management of the entire customer experience which stands out in the sector."
"I am very happy for the past 4 years"
Usual great service

The brakes on your car utilise fluid pressure.
When the brake pedal is depressed, it activates a plunger in the master cylinder,
which pressurises the brake fluid in the pipes and hoses causing the brake components to move.
Brake repairs are one of the most common reasons to visit a garage; all cars need their brake discs and pads replaced at regular intervals. Some of the warning signs for brake failure are squealing or grinding noises when depressing the brakes, or the brake feeling 'spongy' when the pedals is pressed. And of course if you need to brake increasingly hard to effectively slow or stop your car, then you could well be looking at brake replacement.
There are two main types of brake systems: disc brakes and drum brakes.
Disc brake systems are comprised of two pads per wheel, which clamp down on the brake disc when the brake pedal is depressed. When the fluid becomes pressurised, it sends a plunger in the calliper forward, forcing the brake pads on either side of the brake disc to squeeze it, which results in the slowing and stopping of the car.
Drum brakes operate in the same way as disc brakes, but with a different design. They both use friction to slow and stop the car, but drum brakes use shoes, instead of pads. The shoes are inside the steel brake drum itself, which spins with the wheel. When brake pressure is applied, a component called the wheel cylinder expands, forcing the brake shoes apart and towards the inside edge of the drum. Drum brakes are usually found on older vehicles, or just on the rear brake system.
Saab is a currently inactive brand of automobile manufacturer, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of Saabs still on the road. Founded in Sweden in 1945, the company is still the exclusive automobile royal warrant holder as appointed by the King of Sweden. So if you’re driving one, you’re in good royal company!
The first production model, the Saab 92, was launched in 1949. In 1968 the parent company merged with Scania-Vabis, and ten years later the Saab 900 was launched, eventually becoming Saab's best-selling model. In the mid-1980s the new Saab 9000 model also appeared. But after the company became a wholly owned GM subsidiary (and after struggling to avoid insolvency back in 2011), all vehicles under the Saab label were no longer manufactured after the summer of 2014.
What do you need from your garage?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Redditch. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
