Time To Service Your Car?
Keeping your car regularly serviced according to the manufacturers guidelines is one of the best ways of keeping your motoring costs down. Good maintenance helps to ensure you don't run into major problems from lack of caring for your car.
At Autopoint, we perform a fast and effective car servicing, that keeps your car in great shape, and minimises the amount of time you're without a car.
Tyres and Exhausts
Did you know that wrongly inflated tyres can increast fuel consumption and engine wear, and reduce performance? Not only that, tyres with limited tread or damage can be a real danger, especially in the wet.
Let Autopoint check your tyres, and we can double check your exhaust while we are at it. Like tyres, a poorly performing exhaust can cause additional engine wear and increased fuel consumption. We NEVER invent problems, and only ever advise on specific areas that need attention.
Everyone who uses a vehicle on the road is required to keep it in a roadworthy condition at all times . The roadworthiness is checked in the interests of road safety and the environment by the test we call the MOT. The first test is required once a car is 3 years old.
There are different rules if you use it as a taxi or it has more than 8 passenger seats.
The MOT looks at some important items on your car to see that they meet the legal minimum requirements at the time of the test. You should be aware that the MOT certificate is not a guarantee of the general mechanical condition of a vehicle.
Clutches And Brakes
Clutches are found in manual and automatic transmissions. Fly wheels connect a clutch to an engine, while clutch plates connect to the transmission. Clutch problems generally include disc wear and worn bearings.
Clutches wear out. In fact, it's common for a clutch to be replaced before a car reaches the end of its lifespan. Fortunately, we supply, fit and advise on all clutch issues.
It is common knowledge that brakes are critical to driving safety. Without them you simply would not be able to stop effiecently.
We can give you tips to help prevent braking problems and give you increased driving comfort. If you are in any doubt about your braking system, dont delay in talking to our professional mechanics.
Steering And Suspension
The suspension of a car is actually part of the chassis, which comprises all of the important systems located beneath the car's body.
Suspension systems have been smoothing out bumpy rides for centuries -- first in carriages, now in cars.When it comes to crucial automotive systems, steering is right up there with the engine and the brakes.
We can advise on any steering or suspension issues you have, ensuring a pleasurable driving experience.
