When you’re trying to find the right garage in Taunton for your car’s service, it’s good to be able to see all your options quickly and easily. BookMyGarage will show you 28 trusted garages in and around Taunton for you to choose from based on proximity, opening hours, price, service and more.
How do you choose the best garage for your service?
It’s usually only once a year but it has to be done - so where do you take your car for its service? To the garage round the corner because it’s the nearest, even though you don’t really understand what they tell you? To the place your friend recommends, even though it charges more than most Taunton garages? Or to a big, national chain garage - you’d rather support an independent but you feel safer with a big brand? BookMyGarage can give you the confidence to book differently. You’ll find Taunton garages near you rated by other car owners, with transparent, immediate details of their prices and services. Booking online takes just one minute, and the garage only sees what they need to know - no unnecessary sharing of your personal details. You and the garage get the full information on the booking, saving you and the garage even more time and hassle.
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 Taunton 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 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 Taunton 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 Taunton 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.
