"Collected car from my home and delivered it back. Service carried out on time and let me know when it was on way back."
"I was happy thanks."
"Initially booked full service, with car to be collected and returned. The day came and the car wasn’t collected. Called to enquire and was told there must have been an issue with the book in and that collection was unavailable. The lady resolved this by collecting my car personally and returning it the following day (going above and beyond - really appreciate that). She also mentioned that my car would be fine having a part service, as opposed to the full service, which was a cheaper option. Was kept well informed, with the video health check sent through. Very pleased with the service and will use again in future."

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.
The capital of Wales since only 1955, Cardiff has emerged in recent decades as a lively, stylish, self-assured and cosmopolitan city offering culture, history and nightlife as well as the beauty and tranquillity of nearby coastal and rural areas.
