I was very skeptical initially with the service I was going to be provided by Fixter. Nevertheless it is very convenient that they come and get your car from any place and date. So I booked for a major service on the date and place I wanted. On that day, a guy came with his folded bike (10mins late)...

The alternator is the device responsible for generating electricity to charge the battery. It’s coupled with the engine drive, which means whenever the car is running, the battery is being charged. Without a charged battery there is no delivery of power to the electrical components or to generate the sparks used to combust the fuel in the engine.
An alternator typically lasts around 7 years or between 100k and 150k miles.
Without a correctly functioning alternator, your car is unlikely to hold enough charge in the battery to drive for any purposeful length of time. Having said that, the alternator won’t be tested during an MOT, so as long as the battery has enough charge for the engine and other electrical components to run for the duration of the examination, then it can still achieve a pass. We do not recommend this in any circumstance. If there is a problem with your alternator, you should have it repaired or replaced as soon as possible.
An alternator might break down due to a bearing failure, preventing the rotor from spinning freely. Fluid leaks or a too tight belt (or a loose belt slipping) can also cause damage and premature wearing.
If your battery is flat and refuses to accept charge through normal driving, then your alternator could be the problem.
If your headlamps aren’t as bright as normal or the function of other electrical components is weak, your alternator may not be supplying as much charge to the battery as it needs.
All warning lights are an indicator that a sensor has detected a failed component or poor operation. A battery warning light could be connected to your alternator performance.
Peugeot is a French automotive manufacturer, initially founded in 1810 as a manufacturer of coffee and bicycles that went on to build internal combustion engine cars from 1890.
With possibly its strongest model line-up in years, Peugeot is looking to turn around its current dip in vehicle numbers on the UK roads today. After a steady rise over the decade from 1995 to 2005, from 1.1million to 2.1million, the current tally has slowly dropped to a mere 1.8million—a strong total despite the depreciation in numbers.
With 21 standard vehicle models available from the full Peugeot line-up, that’s a lot of choice when buying a car.
Without doubt, it’s their SUV offerings that are leading the way; the innovation and technology applied to these stronger models will hopefully be developed through the rest of the range, bringing them into line with what the buying public expect from their motoring today.
Catering for city driving, Peugeot has smaller models available that include the 108 city car and the 208 supermini, next up is the 308 hatchback, and then the majority of the models in today’s line-up is their range of SUVs.
However, the 508 saloon, featuring fastback type styling, has grown into an attractive low-slung 5-door coupé. More cars like this could enhance Peugeot’s positioning away from the mid-stream and into executive status.
It was in the 1980s when the 205 was introduced and seemed responsible for turning around the success of the company. The supermini model was applauded for its style and handling, which led to sales topping 50k units a year.
In 1984 the GTI was launched with a 1.6-litre engine; soon followed by a 1.9-litre model. The high-performance hatchback set standards in thrill-seeking for younger drivers everywhere.
Could the new range of SUVs be responsible for another similarly styled comeback for the French giant?
Peugeot ranked 24th place out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. Not the best by any standard, but certainly not the worst available if you’re looking for a trouble-free motoring marque.
Various recalls have been made on Peugeot models throughout their motoring history. The following are a list of the most recent in the UK and Europe.
The wiring harness on the voltage retaining device may have been inadequately tightened
Excessive loading of the front suspension could result in loosening and eventual separation of the front wishbone lower ball joints
The vehicle’s air-conditioning compressor pulley could break and damage other components
The fastening elements on the steering mechanism are inadequate
The wishbone mounting brackets on the rear suspension system are incorrectly fixed and can break
The steering column was incorrectly assembled on the shaft of the steering system
It is possible that the blue that adheres the windowpane to the rear door could come loose
The wheel fastening nuts may have been insufficiently tightened
