Great Garage-lovely staff
"Love the video they send you from the mechanic telling and showing what’s wrong and how it can be fixed with a price attached so no surprises. Would definitely use again and recommend to all."
"Always extremely happy with the service and communication I receive. Cannot fault them. Great value and customer service."
"Quick and painless service as usual."
Redlake - great service
"I've been using Redlake for 7+ years now, trust their workmanship and advise. Redlake is an 'Old school' garage where the mechanics are skilled, and not just process bods putting cars through MOT/ services.... would recommend"
Overall a great service
"Great staff, excellent customer service. Would’ve liked to have been contacted regarding a bulb needing replacement as I had a brand new bulb in the glove box, so ended up paying for another new bulb when I didn’t need to, though this is my only qualm with SM motors. Will definitely be using again"
"Very happy with service, done in good time."
"Friendly staff. Workshop looked smart & tidy. Everything went smoothly."
"I booked the car in and they dealt with it the next day. These people understand cars and are customer focused. Highly recommend them"
"This garage provides great end-to-end service from booking, through on-time vehicle collection, provision of required MOT and service with clear guidance and paperwork, to final delivery of the vehicle back to my home. There were no nasty surprises in charging. I would certainly commend the professionalism of service delivery and their management of the entire customer experience which stands out in the sector."
A head gasket, as its name suggests, is a gasket located between the cylinder head and the engine block in the engine. Its main function is to seal the cylinders to ensure the highest compression possible, and to protect the cylinders from leakages of coolant or engine oil. The head gasket separates the oil and the coolant in the engine.
What does a head gasket do?
The head gasket is a critical sealing component of your vehicle's engine. Any potential problem with a head gasket should be dealt with immediately as it can lead to more severe issues developing, which if ignored will increase the cost of your repair. Once a head gasket is blown, it can cause further damage to your vehicle's engine such as leaks, loss of water, decreased fuel efficiency and overheating. The longer you drive with a blown head gasket, the more damage it will cause to your engine. In the worst cases scenario, if left for a long time you could be looking at a complete engine replacement.
Saab is a currently inactive brand of automobile manufacturer, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of Saabs still on the road. Founded in Sweden in 1945, the company is still the exclusive automobile royal warrant holder as appointed by the King of Sweden. So if you’re driving one, you’re in good royal company!
The first production model, the Saab 92, was launched in 1949. In 1968 the parent company merged with Scania-Vabis, and ten years later the Saab 900 was launched, eventually becoming Saab's best-selling model. In the mid-1980s the new Saab 9000 model also appeared. But after the company became a wholly owned GM subsidiary (and after struggling to avoid insolvency back in 2011), all vehicles under the Saab label were no longer manufactured after the summer of 2014.
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 Ashtead 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.
