Repairs Advice & FAQ
Below, we have detailed answers to some of the most common questions we receive about car repairs undertaken at our Southend-on-Sea garage.
For further advice and guidance in relation to your own servicing and repair needs as an Essex motorist, please feel free to call our friendly and professional team on 01702 612472.
We are a small, family-owned business with a strong emphasis on serving the local community – and this very much extends to car repairs for those living in and around Southend-on-Sea, Essex.
Our high level of knowhow in car repairs covers such key components as your vehicle’s brakes, batteries, windscreen, steering and suspension. However, we are equally well-known for the trusting and lasting relationships that we build with our customers, and our commitment to much more affordable prices than are often on offer from main dealers.
If you’re considering requesting repair work to your car from us rather than a main dealer, you may be concerned about the potential consequences of this for your car’s warranty.
The good news in this regard is that the European Union (EU)’s Block Exemption Regulation has long given motorists the freedom to choose exactly where to have their vehicle serviced or repaired, without having to worry about their warranty being invalidated.
Crucial to this here at Reynolds RMGMOT in Southend is our use of only main dealer parts or parts of Original Equipment (OE) standard. This policy protects your warranty, and gives you the peace of mind of knowing that when you have your car repaired by us, the parts and service will be of at least the same quality as you would be able to expect from a main dealer.
In fact, we take pride in often going beyond even the manufacturers’ recommendations when it comes to car repairs. Choosing us also allows you to avoid long dealer waiting lists and nasty additional costs; we always present quotes upfront for repair work that we propose to carry out, and will only proceed with your approval.
What is a car diagnostic check, and how could it benefit you?
Car diagnostic checks typically use a vehicle’s engine control unit – or ECU – to help pinpoint the cause of problems that may be occurring. The ECU itself uses sensors throughout the vehicle to identify faults as and when they arise. When a particular issue is detected, the ECU produces an error code, and the driver is alerted to the situation by a relevant dashboard warning light.
But of course, as a driver, you may still be unsure what a particular fault code means. This is where our specialist technicians come in; using sophisticated diagnostic test equipment and a high level of associated expertise, they can determine the true extent and nature of any issue with your car.
So, the next time a worrying warning light appears on your vehicle’s dashboard or there are other issues with your car that you’re concerned about, why not book a diagnostic check at Reynolds RMGMOT, so that we can take an in-depth look at the problem? Arrange a diagnostic check with us online today, or call 01702 612472 for further guidance and advice.
