"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."
"I am very happy for the past 4 years"
Usual great service

Power Assisted Steering, or ‘PAS’ as it is also known, is a mechanism that helps you to steer your car. In most vehicles, the PAS relies on a hydraulic system to aid turning the vehicle's wheels. If you have ever driven a car with no Power Steering you will have most certainly noticed the difference between having PAS and not. Power Steering used to be a luxury in certain vehicles, but nowadays it is almost standard in every type of vehicle.
There are two types of power steering: rack-and-pinion and the recirculating ball. Rack-and-pinion is the most common system. Although not as widespread, the recirculating ball system is still in use, mainly on vans and trucks.
In both systems, two high-pressure hoses connect the steering rack to both sides of the centre seal. One hose directs high pressure hydraulic fluid from the power steering pump to the steering mechanism, while the other allows fluid to flow back to the pump. When the steering wheel is turned left or right, the steering mechanism allows the hydraulic fluid to pass to that side of the rack. That pressure assists the vehicle's steering power by pushing the seal and rack in one direction or the other.
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.
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 Horncastle. 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.
