"Dropped my car off and they called me when I got home to advise that they recommend the pollen filter to be changed and gave me a price, which was very competitive. A few hours later I received a text message to say car was ready for collection. Picked the car up and they explained the paperwork and highlighted any items that needed attention. I would give them the following ratings (won't let me click on stars) value 4, helpfulness 4, quality of work 4, kept informed 5."
"was happy with the work and time to pick my car up"
"Really happy with CSS. I needed a quick MOT so made my appt. online, they rang to say they were fully booked but when I explained, she fitted it in. They rang to let me know the MOT was done, and replaced my tyres at my request. Didn't charge me the earth and rang me when completed. Would definitely recommend."
Easy and straight forward
"Does what is needed and doesn’t push for work to be completed with them after MOT. Straightforward and to the point, what you need from a garage, thank you."
Great speedy service
"Was told to return with 45-1hr and didn’t have to wait and longer so great service"
"Friendly Polite Easy process No issues at all, perfect Great value"
"I took my car for my annual car service. The check was done quickly and they rang me to inform me of work that needed doing for the near future. They kept to the rockets that had been quoted online which was good. The only thing is my air con was regassed and then went on to smell bad as my filter needed changing. I was surprised no one picked this up as I smelt the smell when I picked up my car but thought it was due to something else until I used my air con 2 days later. They quickly sorted my filter when I came back later that week but it potentially could’ve been sorted in one go. Otherwise great service all round."
"Got my car serviced and MOT done. Was able to book on line and see exactly how much it would cost. It was half the price of what Vauxhall were going to charge. Im going to be using this garage again mext year."
"Friendly staff who are always genuine and never try to rip you off."
"Emily the receptionist I met and who delt with my car was amazing every step of the way when dealing with my car couldn't ask for anything else."
"I was happy with the high quality of service. I was kept well informed during the process and will definitely be using them again for my service and future mots"
"The staff were very friendly and the service was carried out quickly without fuss. The information given following the service explained all work carried out and the health of parts such as discs, pads....the car does seem to drive better following the service. Will definitely use them again."
A car radiator disperses heat away from the main engine block. A car engine works by burning fuel (whether petrol or diesel), and this generates a considerable amount of heat. In addition, a car engine has many moving parts; this movement creates friction, which in turn adds to the heat.
Because a car engine must remain not too hot in order to avoid overheating and seizure, when it reaches a certain temperature the thermostat opens to allow the flow of coolant and water around the engine and back to the radiator, where it loses heat to the cooler surrounding air. The front grill of the car allows outside air to blow over the radiator. If the radiator gets too hot, for example on a very hot day, or when the car is stationary, a fan behind the radiator starts, helping to blow air over it.
The most common reason for needing a car radiator repair is a leak. There are many seals, gaskets and hoses in the cooling system that can deteriorate or get a hole in them. Furthermore, every radiator needs to be properly maintained and the coolant must be kept topped up. Your garage should provide coolant changes at the same time as your annual service.
It’s also a good idea to check your car’s coolant level regularly. If it seems to be dropping a lot, then you may have a leak in the cooling system.
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.
