Southampton

Southampton is 70 miles south-west of London and 15 miles north-west of Portsmouth. It is the largest city in Hampshire and also in the south-east of England, with an estimated population of 250,000.

Boasting many medieval heritage buildings, Southampton hosts some of the longest surviving stretches of medieval walls in England.

It’s also home to a multitude of museums, including the Tudor House and Southampton Maritime museums. The SeaCity Museum is located in the west wing of the Civic Centre and focuses on the city’s trading history and the famous ocean-going passenger liner, The Titanic.

The Guildhall (currently branded The O2 Guildhall) has played host to a mass of musical talent in its time: Pink Floyd, David Bowie, The Killers, Amy Winehouse and Lostprophets have all played here, as well as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Southampton Philharmonic Choir.

The most popular cars in Southampton

One of the major players in the growth of the SUV market, the Nissan Qashqai is estimated to be the most popular car in Southampton, according to data provided between 2012 to 2018 by ownership and postcode.

Close on its heels—and in order of popularity—are the Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Tiguan, Ford Fiesta and the Mercedes A-Class.

Car servicing

It’s usually recommended to give your car a full service every year or every 12,000 miles, whichever happens first. In between times, an interim service ensures your motor remains in the best possible condition.

Although not legally required, regular servicing will keep your vehicle running smoothly and safely, pinpointing potential problems early on and reducing the risk of more serious (and expensive) issues cropping up later.

And while there is some overlap with an MOT in terms of things checked, it doesn’t pay to skimp on either inspection.

What’s included in a car service?

Fixter offers three kinds of services, depending on your mileage, with exact prices dependent on your car’s age, model, make and engine size. All three exceed virtually all manufacturers’ recommended inspections.

Our strategic partnership with AXA™ Insurance, gives us access to an unparalleled network of garages and parts suppliers.

Full service

  • 71 maintenance checks
  • Drain engine oil, refill, replace oil filter and checks for excessive leaks.
  • Replace air filter.

Major service

  • 71 maintenance checks
  • Drain engine oil, refill, replace oil filter and checks for excessive leaks
  • Replace air filter.
  • Replace cabin filter.
  • Replace fuel filter (if needed).

Interim service (recommended for high-mileage motorists)

  • 40 maintenance checks
  • Oil change; checks for any excessive leaking

We never carry out or recommend unnecessary work, or do anything you haven’t asked us to.

When should I do a car service?

It’s usually recommended to give your car a full service every year or every 12,000 miles, whichever happens first. Keep in mind that regular servicing will keep your vehicle running smoothly and safely.
