"This was my 2nd visit to garage as had another car serviced and MIT earlier in year. Staff are very helpful and keep you informed."
Friendly and efficient.
"Helpful staff and fitted me in at short notice. As my car passed the test and the fee is a standard one I can't really make much comment. They seemed very professional though, and I would use them again."
Excellent fast service
"Very happy with service they sorted my car straight away"
Great friendly service
"Very happy with work done"
"Great, very happy, the only problem is that with all my other cars I got a report back detailing all the items checked and whether they needed attention sooner rather than later. With this service all I got was an itemised invoice for parts and labour. No idea what was checked, what might need attention or anything."
"Very happy with the customer service - lift broke on the day I had booked and garage staff went out of their way to ensure that the service was completed on time."
"Took a day and a half to do a mot and a service. Can't fault them mechanically but are a bit slow"
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.
Japanese firm Subaru’s heritage comes from the skies: the company developed out of the Nakajima Aircraft Company (1917-1945), which in its day was the largest aircraft manufacturer in Asia. In 1954 the company debuted its first automobile with the Subaru 500, Japan’s first mini, but Subaru’s story really started in 1972 with the launch of its symmetrical all wheel drive. It’s this factor above all which makes Subaru stand out from the crowd - 4x4 is standard on every car that Subaru sells in the UK (apart from the Justy city car).
Subaru currently sells seven models into the UK including the popular Outback, the original ‘crossover’ and a trusty and tough SUV. Other much loved models include the Forester, a slightly smaller SUV ideally suited to rural driving, and the Impreza - a rally champion turned practical family car.
Subaru owners display impressive brand loyalty, and for good reason. These cars are known for their longevity - it’s not unusual to see Foresters and Outbacks on the used car sales boards with over 200,000 miles on the clock. Part of the reason for this is Subaru’s unique flat-lying ‘boxer’ engines, with pistons which punch horizontally, like a boxer, rather than up and down as in a traditional engine. This means less vibration and friction, and better lubrication, particularly on start-up. In some ways, Subaru build cars which are seemingly almost indestructible! For safety and reliability across the board they consistently score very highly indeed with drivers and independent reviewers.
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 Llanfyllin 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.
