Our Kew Clients’ Questions Answered
Why choose your car garage over a main dealership or national fast-fit centre?
Key reasons our Kew clients choose an independent car garage like Chris and Chris, over main dealers and fast fit centres in the area, include a more personable and tailored service: we don’t simply try and rush you in and out to “improve margins”.
Another big reason is just how competitively priced our car repairs, car servicing, MOT testing and engine diagnostics services are; we march to the beat of our own drum, and as such can constantly undercut prices while monitoring the market – we don’t need to run it by corporate executives and board members.
What’s checked during MOT testing?
MOT testing ensures your vehicle is roadworthy by checks and tests on:
- Lights and reflectors
- Electrical components
- Steering and suspension
- Tyres and road wheels
- Seat belts, body and “general items”
- Exhaust, fuel and emissions
- Driver’s view of the road
Why invest in regular car servicing?
Keeping on top of car servicing will afford a number of benefits. Firstly, it reduces the likelihood of a breakdown. Secondly, it keeps you and fellow Kew motorists safe on the road. Thirdly, it preserves vehicle value (in case you come to sell up or trade in). It also improves fuel efficiency, saving you money at the pumps, and performance, for a smoother and more responsive drive.
My vehicle’s engine is making odd noises and performing oddly. What should I do?
Bring it to our car garage in Kew, of course! We can utilise the latest and greatest engine diagnostics equipment to read ECU fault codes and recommend the appropriate car repairs or car servicing.
When should I be looking to purchase new tyres?
Severe punctures or structural damage are certainly reason for getting a set of new tyres; you should also consider a seasonal change to deal with icy roads. Perhaps the most common reason for Kew motorists to visit us for new tyres, is their tread depth is starting to wear down below the UK legal minimum of 1.6mm.
