Best garage EVER
"I have been going to this garage for a few years now, and even though I have moved to the other side of the city, I wouldn’t go anywhere else, after being ripped off by several garages before. All the staff are very friendly, and Stuart in reception keeps you up to date throughout the day. They also don’t start any repairs until they have consulted you and given you a price, which is always very reasonable, and I’ve never had to return to have a repair, repaired again, which has happened previously too. I honestly cannot recommend this garage highly enough"
"Good, fast and very well priced no complaints here!"
MOT Carried out
"Another perfect service from Kilgannon garage, allways use this place now, handy location and good prices."
"Was easy to book in online, Gary called from the garage to confirm my booking and drop off time, quick to check car in and confirm pick up time, car was ready as expected and all work taken confirmed / explained to me"
Friendly and helpful
"Full Service done. The cost, Labour and workmanship have been excellent. However the garage can better manage its time as I was given a time appointment on the day of the service rather than some time before."
"kept informed of repairs and costs and how long it would take."
"Very happy with the work done. Staff were very friendly and helpful"
Great Service but...
"I had a full service done. I was emailed an appointment time on the day which which was inconvenient. Woman told me to bring it in for the appointment time and she would make sure I was seen to whilst I wait however no woman was seen at the desk (appears to be offsite call centre I believe). Dropped the car off and sat around for a while, guy told me to come back for closing time which was 4 hours away. The price of the service and the quality (so far) have been excellent however they need to better manage their appointment times and advise an exact time upon booking and also advise collection times so people know whether to wait around or plan a time filler. I will be back though due to prices and quality of the workmanship."
"Usual excellent local service"
"Very happy with the service I received this time round as with every other time ive been. Always use them for my services and MOTs. Dropped car off before i went to work and by mid morning i had a text to say car was ready to collect. Went down after work and car was ready, pleasent staff, paid by card and went off on my jolly way!! For a woman in my 30s i have been in garages where they try and add things on or try and get more money from you. These guys though are completely honest and genuine and always made to feel completely comfortable. Thanks for a fab experience. Car feels great."
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.
Driving in Scotland
Motorists in Scotland come up against a range of challenges.

BookMyGarage can compare garages the length and breadth of Scotland, whether you’re negotiating Glasgow City Centre or gazing at the expanse of Loch Ness.
