"Great service from this garage. Mot carried out within 2 hours of drop off and called when it was ready. No added extras to the price so all done for £29.99! Great using the online app to book car in so could do it out of working hours and called back next day to confirm time and day. It’s my 3rd visit to Johnson’s and customer service is excellent."

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

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 Southport 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 Southport 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 Southport 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.
