How do you choose the best garage for your service?
It’s usually only once a year but it has to be done - so where do you take your car for its service? To the garage round the corner because it’s the nearest, even though you don’t really understand what they tell you? To the place your friend recommends, even though it charges more than most Afon-wen garages? Or to a big, national chain garage - you’d rather support an independent but you feel safer with a big brand? BookMyGarage can give you the confidence to book differently. You’ll find Afon-wen garages near you rated by other car owners, with transparent, immediate details of their prices and services. Booking online takes just one minute, and the garage only sees what they need to know - no unnecessary sharing of your personal details. You and the garage get the full information on the booking, saving you and the garage even more time and hassle.
When should you get your car serviced?
Not everyone is organised enough to know when an MOT is due, but what about a service? The make, age, mileage and average usage of your car all play a part in this question, but in general your car should undergo a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every two years (or 24,000 miles). Some helpful garages apply a sticker to the driver’s door noting the date when the next service is due, but the best thing is to check the owner’s manual which should detail the service history of the vehicle. When you buy a new car or sell your existing one, it’s important to have that service history filled out so that a potential buyer or dealer can see at a glance that the car’s been properly looked after. High mileage drivers who regularly travel outside Afon-wen should consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What are common car problems to look out for?
A common car problem which is worth taking action on fast is a faulty alternator. The alternator is a simple but key part in your car - as well as powering your headlights it gives your battery the power it needs to start the car, so it’s pretty important. There are a few signs to look out for if your alternator is starting to fail, from dimmed headlights when you’re driving around Afon-wen at night or a light appearing on the dashboard, to a growling sound or unusual smell coming from the engine. If you spot any of these, find a Afon-wen garage on BookMyGarage and get your car checked out. Prices for a replacement alternator can vary a lot depending on the make and model of your car, but are generally around £200-£300.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Afon-wen or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
