A1 Customer Service
"Was contacted by Stoneacre after making booking and told about a Multipoint check for £14.99 which included a free litre of oil to take away. From arriving to leaving the service was excellent and even shown around points of concern whilst vehicle on ramp. The garage did not have the free litre of oil suitable for my vehicle available and therefore did not charge me a penny for the inspection. A good print out showing what was inspected etc and areas of concern along with quotes was given too. Well done Stoneacre Goole. First class customer care even for something they did not receive any payment for. 10/10"

"Great garage, friendly staff, great value for money"
"Very happy with this local garage. I have had my MOT done there for the past couple of years. I find this garage genuine and they never overcharge or do unnecessary work on my vehicle"
"My car had been recalled by BMW about a month prior to the MOT and they had advised there were no issues with the car so I was curious what a garage would say. The fact the car passed with no advisories, matches with what BMW said and shows me they're an honest garage which is like gold dust! I found the staff really friendly on the both the phone and in person and would highly recommend."
The clutch is perhaps the most important part of a car’s transmission system. It comprises two metal plates which are responsible for maintaining a connection between the engine and the gearbox. When the driver depresses the clutch pedal the plates come apart, separating the engine from the drive wheels, allowing you to change gear. Bringing the pedal back up re-engages the plates which in turn connect the engine to the drive wheels.
Excessive noise and vibration from the clutch area can be caused by a bad release bearing or pilot bearing. If this is the case in your car, the garage will take apart the clutch assembly in order to replace the bearings.
If the clutch is grabbing and shuddering as it’s engaged, the garage may need to take a look at the flywheel as well. Many modern vehicles are fitted with a dual mass flywheel; a rotating mechanical device which can break down. There’s no easy way for garages to check for this without disassembling the clutch and inspecting the pressure plate and flywheel. If the clutch pedal is giving little or no resistance, the problem could be a seal leak in the master or slave cylinder.
Proton is a Malaysian car manufacturer which set up shop in 1983 on the orders of the then Malaysian Prime Minister, whose aim was for the country to build its own national car. Today Proton exports to more than 50 countries worldwide including the UK, where it has been selling vehicles since 2009.
One of the most popular Proton models currently sold in the UK is the Gen-2, a family saloon which also comes in an ‘Ecologic’ dual-fuel variant. This gives you the option to run the car on LPG, which will save you money on fuel costs. The other main current models on offer are the Savvy, an inexpensive compact city car, and the Satria Neo, a 3 door supermini.
Proton’s partnership with Lotus engineering has led to improved steering and cornering; the Gen-2 in particular gains plaudits from drivers for its comfortable ride. However, in general Proton drivers frequently report noisy engines, as well as bemoaning the interior’s rather cheap look and feel.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Arbroath 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.
