How do you choose a garage for your service?
What is the first thing you do when it’s time to choose a garage for your annual service? Do you just pick up the phone to the garage you’ve been using since you first drove a car - even if it’s miles out of Ripon - because that’s what you’ve always done? Do you ask friends for their recommendations? Or do you compare prices, speed and quality of service, and feedback for all the garages in and around Ripon? While this might seem the most systematic approach, it is also the most time-intensive. But BookMyGarage lets you do just that and book in your service with your chosen garage online at the same time.
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 Ripon should consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
What are common repairs your car may need?
The cambelt (or timing belt) is a very important component that regulates the operation of your car engine. If it breaks, it can cause expensive damage, so when it comes to the cambelt prevention is better than cure. This crucial part of your engine will have an inbuilt lifespan. Varying from make to make, some manufacturers suggest replacement at 40,000 miles, others are said to last as long as 110,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for your specific car. Some tell-tale symptoms that your cambelt might be wearing out include erratic engine behaviour at around 2000 - 4000 RPMs, or your exhaust suddenly starting to expel more smoke than usual. This is an indicator that your engine is struggling and under duress - time to click on BookMyGarage and find a great Ripon garage at the right price.
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 Ripon 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.
