"They were very helpful in rebooking my MOT for the next day when I forgot to show up for my original appointment. MOT was quick and the waiting area was comfortable."
"Impressed by my first experience of Rentech. The MOT in the morning found 2 broken rear suspension springs and a defective front trailing arm, and they'd fixed the whole lot by close of play."
"2 MOTs/services with this garage and it's all straight forward and they don't advise you to spend lots of money with them with minor things unless it's necessary."
Great customer service
"I put my car into John Mcinnes for an MOT. Unfortunately an issue with my bonnet lock reared it’s head and the MOT couldn’t be completed. After attempting to get in myself, I returned it to the garage where they got in and carried out the MOT, without charging for the extra time spent trying to get around this particular issue. I was kept well informed of the situation and the staff were more than helpful. Would highly recommend."

Do you know when your car needs a service?
When do you need to take your car in for a service? The general recommendation is that your car has a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every couple of years (or 24,000 miles). That said, the make, model, mileage and age of your vehicle will all affect how often it needs a service. Your owner’s manual is a good place to start to make sure you’re getting your car serviced when you should. You should also think about having an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles) if you're covering long distances beyond Newton Stewart on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
What are common repairs your car may need?
Have you ever returned to your usual parking place to find a suspicious dark stain where your car was parked overnight? Take action fast as engine oil leaks should not be ignored; there’s a danger of potential engine damage or failure if your engine runs low on oil. If the liquid is dark brown or yellow, and it feels slippery or greasy, it is probably motor oil. A pink or red slippery liquid could be automatic transmission fluid, while green or orange liquid with a sweet smell is most likely antifreeze (watch out for pets and young children around this one as it’s highly toxic). A clear, oily liquid could be power steering fluid. Whatever it is, get the car checked by a trusted garage. Typical costs of repairing a leak are hard to give as the reason could be something simple such as a worn seal, or it could be a sign of a major issue with your engine. Use BookMyGarage to find the most suitable garage in Newton Stewart for your needs.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Newton Stewart 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.
