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 Winkleigh - 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 Winkleigh? 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 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 Winkleigh 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?
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 Winkleigh garage at the right price.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Winkleigh 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.
