Excellent as always
"Great service as always. Could easily have told me I needed a new clutch and charged me a fortune. I wouldn’t have know any difference. However they are honest and if work isn’t needed they won’t do it to just make money. I am someone who doesn’t know a thing about cars. I can’t tell you how valuable it is to have a garage you have complete 100% trust in. Would never go anywhere else for my car repairs."
"Speedy service and kept well informed. Garage was open until 7pm so was able to collect car at ease after work."
"very helpfull staff"
"I have just moved to the area and was a bit sceptical at first to get my car serviced and MOT at Griffin’s... but I’m glad I gave in and took a gamble to try them out.. this will be my main garage from now on! Everything was spot on, although I noticed a slight scratch on bumper on its return and rubber around door frame was not clipped in properly ☹️"
"Very friendly staff, completed on time as promised"
"Good cleaning of car after work done would be helpful"
"Great service, friendly helpful staff, great price"
"CAN'T PRAISE ADRIAN ENOUGH,PICKED CAR UP FROM MY HOUSE DID EXACTLY WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO AT A DECENT PRICE.WOULD NOT HESITATE TO RECOMMEND HIM.BRILLIANT."
"Very happy with the work carried out"
"Staff were helpful & the texts with videos was great. Spent alot of money in one go but needed doing"
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.
Founded by a Scottish marine engineer in (you guessed it) Vauxhall, London in 1857, the company has been under the umbrella of American giant General Motors since 1925. Notable former Vauxhall cars include classics such as the Victor, Chevette, and Cavalier, while the current car range includes city cars like the Adam and Viva, extended range electric cars like the Ampera, the Astra, and the Zafira Tourer, a large MPV. Vauxhall also sells high-performance versions of a smattering of its offerings under the sub-brand VXR.
In the UK market at least, Vauxhall is regularly in the running with Ford to top the sales charts (although it’s never quite taken top spot).
About the Vauxhall Corsa
Due to generous offers on the sales front, the previous model of the Vauxhall Corsa was one of the most popular sold in the UK after its introduction, despite similar offerings from the other big producers. However, the current Corsa makes a number of improvements on its predecessor including loads of extra space and improved looks. With three and five door options, there’s something for everyone. The main issue that has come up with this make, particularly the 2008 Vauxhall Corsa, is clutch burnout. If that’s been a problem for you, we can help you find the right garage to fix the problem.
What do you need from your garage?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in Gateshead. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
