An honest Technician
"I needed a 2nd opinion about noises coming from the front of the car and found Solo Automotive on this website. I filled out an online enquiry form and within a few minutes, I got a cheery phone call from Ash and the car booked in. On the day of my visit, Ash thoroughly inspected the suspension on the ramp, test drove the car on lumps and bumps and explained to me at every stage what he was looking for, very clearly. At the end of the inspection, I felt fully informed about what was actually happening with my car. It turns out that rather than a shot suspension, some of the plastic coverings under the bonnet have shrunk over time and bang against each other - I can live with that! I'm so impressed with my experience with Ash from start to finish, that I have decided to ditch the main dealer after 9 years and take the car in to Solo Automotive from now on."

At BookMyGarage we’ve worked hard to provide an authoritative comparison site where you can instantly weigh up the garage options in Coleford.

When should you get your car serviced?
Do you know how often you should get your car serviced and what type of service you need? There is no hard and fast rule - it depends on the model of car you have and its age. You should find this information in your car owner’s manual. If you’re not sure, enter your mileage on BookMyGarage and we’ll help you decide. As a general recommendation, you should be taking your car for a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). If you’re regularly travelling far beyond Coleford for work or to visit relatives, or you have a car with known issues, it’s worth getting an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What is a common car problem to look out for?
Now and again you might find it hard to turn the steering wheel or, worse, it might lock altogether. This is clearly a problem with the steering but it can have several different causes. Start by checking the power steering fluid levels - there may be a leak. Other causes might be a slipped steering pump belt, damage to the hose that connects to the power steering pump or to the rack and pinion seals. Steering problems that aren’t related to power steering might be the result of unequal tyre pressure, worn steering gear bearings, or loose steering linkage. If you can’t easily identify the cause, or can but aren’t sure how to fix it, BookMyGarage will show you garages in Coleford which can help with this type of problem.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Coleford 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.
