Great customer service
"Very personable and professional"
"Richard and his team at Metro are great. They communicate clearly about what is going on during any work. All work is priced - doing their best to do quality work for best price. I have moved to South Edinburgh and it now takes me an hour to get to Metro but after 10 years of good service wouldn't think about going anywhere else. Have recommended Metro to friends and they say the same."

A Wee Gem of a Garage!
"A great wee find. My wife & I had bought Daihatsu cars for 20 years & used the dealer in Troon for all our repairs/servicing until the owner retired in 2017. I had decided to use Seedhill Service Station for my full annual service & MOT due at the end of March because of their web site special price offer, but had to use them earlier when my brakes started acting up. A great wee crew - knowledgeable, very friendly, and happy to take time to explain what problems have been found & what they'll do to fix them and the costs involved. Also, my wife was delighted they chaps don't talk down to females. Will definitely use them for my service/MOT!"
"Very polite & efficient service, brilliant in what they did would highly recommend"
"100% happy with Westbere Garage. Rang around for a same day MOT- only Garage in the area happy to slot me in. Really friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic value for money. Definitely gained a long term customer here!"
Coolant is a specially-formulated chemical liquid, commonly known as antifreeze, that circulates through a car’s engine. It removes excess heat from a car’s engine by passing it through the car’s radiator. Furthermore, the solution contains inhibitors that protect the metal, plastic and rubber in the cooling system from corrosion. And, as the name antifreeze suggests, it also doesn’t freeze up in bitterly cold conditions, so it plays an important role in a car all year long.
Coolant levels should be checked frequently, at least every 3-6 months. Low coolant can cause overheating, which would have serious implications for other components on the car. Even though coolant can leak and evaporate over time, in many cars it often looks as though the coolant never needs changing because its level seems to stay the same. However, draining and flushing the coolant system, including the radiator, at least once a year is important. Flushing pushes out all the old coolant, debris from corrosion and scale. If left in the engine, it may become clogged up, potentially causing extensive damage.
Before a mechanic drains the cooling system, he might add coolant cleaner to the coolant and then start the engine, depending on what the manufacturer specifies. After the car has run for a while, he would turn it off and drain it. He would then add water to flush it and drain it again, twice, before finally putting in the fresh coolant.
Daihatsu is the oldest of all the Japanese car manufacturers, harking all the way back to 1907 when it began trading as the Hatsudoki Seizo Company ltd. In 1953 they began exporting models, by this time as Daihatsu, although in the last twenty years or so these markets have contracted, and the marque hasn’t sold cars in the UK since 2011. These days Daihatsu is owned by Toyota, despite which there are still plenty of Daihatsus on British roads. The most frequently seen models are the mini SUV Terios, and the Materia minivan.
