"Happy with the service, staff I dealt with and will be continuing to use them in the future."
"When I went to have the front brake discs and pads replaced on the advice of another garage Baylis Vauxhall treated my with total honesty. After inspecting them they said there was no need for replacement. And made no charge. I even got a free car health check and coffee."
"very happy with the service, staff very friendly and made you welcome"
Professional & courteous
"Everything went well: a warm welcome; verbal report by phone during the day with recommendations and justification; all cleared up in the day; and reception open until 6 pm."
Couldn't fault them
"I usually dread getting the car serviced but this time it was different. I dropped the car off and waited in the showroom for a driver to give me a ride home. They were quite busy so I had to wait around 20mins. Later in the day I got an email with a video showing me the state of the brakes, tyres and general undercarriage of the car. By around 2pm I had a call to let me know it was ready. Really pain free experience with pretty timely service."

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 Stroud on a regular basis, or you know your car has some issues.
What are common car problems to look out for?
A common car problem which is worth taking action on fast is a faulty alternator. The alternator is a simple but key part in your car - as well as powering your headlights it gives your battery the power it needs to start the car, so it’s pretty important. There are a few signs to look out for if your alternator is starting to fail, from dimmed headlights when you’re driving around Stroud at night or a light appearing on the dashboard, to a growling sound or unusual smell coming from the engine. If you spot any of these, find a Stroud garage on BookMyGarage and get your car checked out. Prices for a replacement alternator can vary a lot depending on the make and model of your car, but are generally around £200-£300.
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 Stroud 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.
