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)...

Modern cars have an onboard computer or Engine Control Unit (ECU). This continually assesses performance, with sensors throughout the car letting the ECU know of issues such as raised engine temperature, low fluid levels or problems with emission levels or the windscreen wipers. The ECU triggers an error once a problem has been found, and the relevant dashboard warning light will flash, but there are hundreds of potential error codes, which only specialist diagnostic equipment can read. So when a warning light flashes on the dashboard, a diagnostics check is needed to assess how bad the problem is, and what may have caused it.
Live data shows multiple readings from across the engine to assess whether everything is working as it should. The equipment can also check and rectify braking systems where there’s an electronic handbrake, and adjust headlights where possible. You don’t need to go to a dealership to get diagnostic testing done. Most garages and workshops will carry out diagnostic testing for nearly all models and types of vehicle.
We charge a fixed fee for diagnostic testing that can be done while you wait. This is usually done within an hour, but if further work is required, it will clearly take more time. Our highly-trained and qualified mechanics will give you a no-charge, no-obligation repair quote if testing highlights issues with the engine or anything else, and talk you in detail through what is needed to put things right.
So next time a dashboard warning light flashes on, don’t pay dealership prices for diagnostic testing. Let us manage it all for you, picking up your car for its testing, and ensuring a fair price and a reliable service.
The warning light is just the beginning—it doesn’t give the whole picture. There are hundreds of parts in your engine, so the exact nature of the fault may not be immediately apparent.
A diagnostic check accurately identifies the fault, avoiding more serious problems that could lead to costly repairs, potential safety hazards or worse damage. With these tests, your car is plugged into sophisticated diagnostic equipment which reads the error codes your car’s ECU has generated to explain the issue in full. Diagnostic checking looks for errors across various vehicle systems, including tyres, engine management, lights, emissions and more.
The Mazda Motor Corporation is a Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer, initially established in 1920 as a toolmaker but went on to start building cars in the 1930s.
An innovative engineering based company, Mazda has over half a million vehicles on the roads in the UK. Their popularity has made a steady climb over the past 10 years; it’s no real surprise with their provision of smartly designed vehicles and unique philosophy.
Mazda professes to create each car around its driver—engineering them to move their drivers both literally and emotionally. They call this ‘Jinba Ittai’, and this inspiration comes from Japanese tradition, a natural connection like that between a horse and rider symbolising a ‘oneness’, where the car is merely an extension of the driver.
Possibly Mazda’s most popular marketing slogan, established in 2000 and trickle fed through many further campaigns to help them become the well-recognised household brand they are today.
It’s fair to say that Mazda likes to do things a little differently. They make strong, bold choices, and aren’t afraid to put their efficient larger engines in their cars where other marques are working on smaller, on-trend turbocharged options.
The current UK range includes models to include tourers, SUVs and the ever-popular MX-5 convertible. Despite often seemingly going against the grain of motoring trends, Mazda makes cars that are affordable to buy, economical to run and great fun to drive.
Mazda ranked a respectable joint 11th out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. Many of the top 10 positions were taken by Japanese and Asian manufacturers, so Mazda’s 94.6% efficiency rating, while favourable, wasn’t quite as high as some of their neighbouring competition.
Various recalls have been made on Mazda models throughout their motoring history. The following are a list of the most recent in the UK and Europe.
Windscreen wipers may become inoperable
Takata passenger airbag inflators may not operate as intended
Passenger airbag inflators may not operate as intended
Incorrect purge valve bracket
Takata passenger airbag inflators may not operate as intended
Vacuum pump may wear prematurely
Fuel injector software does not control the electric current correctly
