great service as always
Efficient service desk
"The pre service call and arrangements were excellent as I received two calls explaining how things would happen. The guys on the service desk were efficient, friendly and keen to meet my needs. I am not in a position to give an opinion on the quality of service work as everything worked before the work and everything works afterwards!"
"Mercedes service at the price of a local garage."
Value for money
"The annual service I had no problem with - great value no fuss. The warranty item was looked at and attempted to fix via software upgrade but made much worse to the point it occurred when I collected my car from the garage, so another visit to resolve."
Friendly helpfull staff
"VERY HAPPY WITH WORK CARRIED OUT"
"As always Mercedes dealerships I have found are second to none , from the moment you enter premises first class , as always Car is hoovered out if needed & vehicle is Washed"
"I'd booked online to have the car looked at as I suspected the rear bearings needed replacing. I was contacted by the garage and arranged to take my car in so they could check. It turned out that it was the bearings and it could be fixed that morning. On dropping the car off and on collecting, I was given a friendly welcome and was treated with respect. Being female and from past experience, I'm wary of how garages treat women but this wasn't the case at Best Autocentres. I was also advised that my front brakes may soon need replacing and it turns out they're right so back to Best Autocentres in the near future for me!"
"Very helpful and practical advice given. Knowledgeable staff, good prices and excellent quality of work."
"Kind and helpful people, nice, clean place, quick service. Brilliant experience."
"Firstly they were not aware it was an "Book My Garage, Secret Booking" until they asked for payment. around £341.00. I pointed out I was quoted £189.42. Which they agreed , but only included paper info, and would NOT be entered into the Mercedes digital system, which they stated could have an adverse effect on the cars resale value. However I assume I was speaking to a manager who said they would meet me halfway by paying £241.99. which I had no option to accept. Looking at your website there should not have been any extra charges, as the quoted price was include exactly same as if I booked direct. I hope you will take up with Winchester Mercedes, and advise me of the result. Nothing wrong with the service or people other than accounts."
"Happy. Quick - easy - affordable."
When you’re trying to find the right garage in Winchester for your car’s service, it’s good to be able to see all your options quickly and easily. BookMyGarage will show you 12 trusted garages in and around Winchester 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 Winchester 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 Winchester 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?
Not sure when your car service is due? Check your owner’s manual in the first instance, as it depends on the make, age and mileage of your car. Sometimes the last garage which serviced the car leaves a sticker on the inside of the driver’s door as a further reminder. As a rule of thumb, your car should have a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles) and a Major Service every two years (or 24,000 miles). It’s really important to take your car for regular services, for both the smooth running of your vehicle and to make matters straightforward when you sell it on. If you frequently make trips beyond Winchester and generate a high annual mileage, consider an Interim Service every 6 months (or 6,000 miles).
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 Winchester for your needs.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Winchester 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.
