"My car was picked up and dropped off from and to my home. I think this is a brilliant service to offer especially because I have children."
"Very happy with the service - couldn't fault them"
"First time I used Top Gear & I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent service received. They communicated well, collected the car when they said they would & I'm pleased with the quality of work - what more could you ask for? Perhaps a wash & polish would be the icing on the cake!"
Best Garage around
"Good, honest mechanics."
Very Good service
"Although I had to wait a while for my car to be ready, I had a very good experience with top gear and will use them again."
"Very happy the added value of the free collection and return service. Prompt on time and a pleasure to deal with. Just what you would expect from a good company."
"Really friendly and helpful guys! I was struggling to get my car in on the day I wanted due to work commitments, but they offered to pick my car up and dropped it off when they were done, taking the payment over the phone so I didn't have to take any time off work. In the past they've been very honest about the work needed, they won't try to make money out of you and you can see they take pride in what they do! Would 100% recommend!"

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.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Derby or further afield, think about road user etiquette. Showing respect for other road users makes driving more pleasant for you and safer for everyone. For example, if you have to make a last minute change of lane, make your request to change clear to the driver who will need to let you in - and signal your thanks if they do. Be ready to abandon the change of lane if they won’t play ball - your safety (and that of other drivers and pedestrians) is more important than getting to your destination in the shortest time possible. When the position is reversed and a driver asks your permission to change lanes, allow them to as long as it is safe. If you get frustrated, avoid using your horn - it won’t improve matters and might make them considerably worse.
