Full lights check – Bulb replacement as required
A thorough lights check is critical for ensuring your safety on the road. The Quick Fix Garage car service includes inspecting all exterior lights, including headlights, taillights, brake lights, indicators, and fog lights. Any bulbs that are faulty or nearing the end of their lifespan will be reported to the customer, ensuring best visibility for both you and other drivers.

Full engine level checks
Engine fluids play a vital role in the correct operation and longevity of your vehicle’s engine. During our check, the levels of vital fluids such as engine oil, coolant, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and windshield washer fluid will be analysed. Keeping appropriate fluid levels helps to prevent engine overheating, lubricates components, aids in efficient braking, and ensures high levels of visibility. Frequent engine fluid level checks help identify any potential leaks or issues, allowing for speedy repairs and minimising risk of costly engine damage.
Replacement oil and new oil filter
The engine oil is the lifeblood of your vehicles engine, providing lubrication, cooling, and combating against wear and tear. Over time, engine oil can become contaminated and loses its effectiveness, which can lead to increased friction and potential damage. During a Quick Fix Garage service, the expired oil is removed, and a replacement, high-quality oil is added along with a fresh oil filter. This promotes optimum engine performance, improves fuel efficiency, and extends the lifespan of the engine by minimising friction and wear on essential parts.
Tyre tread and pressure checks
Tyres are the single contact point between the vehicle and the road, this makes them crucial for safety and performance. Frequent tyre tread and pressure checks make sure that your tyres are in good condition and appropriately inflated. The tread depth is examined to ensure it meets legal requirements and provides adequate grip, especially in wet or slippery conditions. The correct tyre pressure helps maintain stability, handling, and fuel efficiency while reducing the risk of blowouts and uneven tread wear. Our service enhances road safety, improves handling, and can even save you money on fuel consumption.

Frequent battery checks help minimise risk of unexpected breakdowns, ensure reliable operation of the vehicle, and provide invaluable peace of mind.
