"Great service! Lovely people. I waited while my car was being worked on. They cleaned my car after (it was needed!). Thank you."
"Generally good service and work is always carried out to a very high standard. Added bonus was able to book online."
"The staff was very welcoming and friendly, the mechanics done a great job on keeping me updated"
A great experience
"Upon booking through the site I received a text from the garage within an hour and arranged a time to head down. The staff member at the desk was friendly and quick, the MOT was completed quickly. And even though I needed work they supplied an alternative car for me while mine was being worked on."
Overall great service
Great customer service
"Very easy to book and the staff were very helpful with an estimate on the time the work would take. The quality of the work was good and the car was handed back in immaculate condition."
Cheap and friendly
"I was happy with my MOT for £39. + they were ready and waiting for me when I arrived for my appointment + paperwork was handed to me in a nice plastic sleeve - the MOT took 1.5 hours instead of 45 mins - they had temporarily lost my car keys when I came to collect the car. That was stressful, and I had to come back later after they’d found them"
"Quick. Helpful. Reasonable cost."
Happy with service
"It's great that they offer a free service of collecting and dropping off the car. Really helped me as I have a young child and helps not to have to worry how to get back once the car has been dropped off. So far the car is running ok after the MOT and service. Will use them again."
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 can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Watford or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
