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."
"Used them for years Top job."
"Highly recommend this garage for the west Hillingdon area. Professional, friendly and honest workers. All work is explained in detail and the price is worth it. Excellent experience and I will be back with my car in the future."

What do you think about when choosing a garage for your service?
What is most important for you when you’re booking in your car’s service? For many people working in or near Ferryside, it’s about finding a time that fits around office hours, school pick-ups or nursery drop-offs; BookMyGarage can help here by telling you which garages offer car collection and/or a loan car while yours is out of action. Hanging on the phone while you try to get on with the rest of your life is not ideal so the option to book online with a service such as BookMyGarage can prove invaluable. Of course, you also want a garage you can trust which is where the star ratings from other car owners in Ferryside come in, to help you make the right choice.
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 Ferryside 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 Ferryside which can help with this type of problem.
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 Ferryside 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.
