"Second time using Motorepair. Smooth process from booking in to collection. Well priced, and very honest advice, which is both refreshing and welcoming...... and something which other garages could learn from! Would recommend."
"Motorepair are always professional, courteous and offer a great service and great value. I feel I can trust them and absolutely recommend them."
Confusion over price
"Was first quoted £123 via the main site, then told by the garage to conform with the warranty I'd need a special oil (surely I'd always have needed the right oil) which would have added nearly £40 but ended up paying £148 (£25 extra). All in all happy with price in the end. Could also have used paper mats and seat covers."
"Happy all round"
Great service and coms
"good service right from the booking through to the collection of the car. Video of any work that is suggested needs doing helps you decide if you want the work doing then and there."
"The service was value for money. However, when I called the garage to check if my car was ready to be picked up I was told 'Haven't you checked your text messages, I've sent you a text' When I arrived at the garage to pick my car up I waited at least 15 minutes as I was told by one of the mechanics that the guy had popped out and wouldn't be long. When he arrived back I was told that the service should cost mosre than what I paid and he tried to explain the reasons behind it. However, I made the booking on-line and they knew what make and model of car I was brining in so why didn't they give me a call and advise me that the service wouldn't be the price I booked at? I mentioned I had a service book and could they stamp it. The response I received was 'I couldn't see it in the car and we don't go looking for things either' but did say that if I popped back in they would stamp my service book. I haven't used the garage before and I won't be using it again"
"Car not ready due to unforeseen problems, so garage gave me a courtesy car overnight"
Always brilliant service
"Use the garage regularly and cannot fault them. Always helpful and work is done at a reasonably price"
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.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Deeside 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.
