"Happy with all aspects of service"
"A fixed price that was reduced because no oil filter needed was good."
All seems fine
"Hard to tell with a service but the car works OK. The workshop appears professional and reassuring to see corporate fleet vehicles also being maintained. Many garages seem to have adopted menu approach to service, but Kynaston checked the service requirement to point me to a full service rather than me guessing what it may need. I am happy with this more informed indication."
"Very helpful - particularly when I needed to pick up the car later than opening hour."
"No issues, all done as said."
"Very good customer service and was contacted to advise on any repairs needed. Garage also saved me money by repairing the part rather buying new. Highly recommend."
Short notice MOT
"As always, an absolutely fantastic service. They were very accommodating and incredibly helpful. I won't go anywhere else, they're brilliant."
"Exceptionally pleased, top quality service, carried out very efficiently."
"Happy with service, staff were helpful. Great prices. I was able to book my car on the day I wanted. Would definitely return to them."
"Great value, helpful and friendly. Will use again and highly recommend."
"This is the second service I have had here and as usual excellent service."
Wheels and tyres, as with any rotating object, need to be balanced in order to reduce vibration. A good example of this is when laundry is loaded into a washing machine unevenly, the drum is not correctly balanced, so vibrates. Similarly, wheel balancing ensures that the weight of the wheel and tyre is even around the axle.
You should always have your wheels balanced whenever you have new tyres fitted. Car tyres which are fitted on wheels that have not been properly balanced will wear very quickly and unevenly. This is due to the inconsistent points of friction between the tyre and the road, creating an effect like rubbing sandpaper on the tyre aggressively. Losing grip this way could be very dangerous and the vibration also makes the car’s ride very uncomfortable, possibly to a point of distraction that might lead to an accident.
Wheels are typically removed from a car before their balance is checked. They are placed in a specially-designed machine and spun to measure the vibration. Small offsetting weights are placed at points on the rim of the wheel based on results from the balancing machine. This is repeated until the machine reports that the wheel is balanced.
How to be a better driver
Whether you’re driving in Exeter 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.
