Nikos from Manchester
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)...

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.
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.
There are approximately 175,000 licensed vehicles in the Southampton area, with some of the most popular models including the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Corsa and the VW Polo.
There are a total of 14 Fixter garages in the Southampton area, all ready and waiting to provide you with a fantastic quote for your car service, MOT and a wide range of vehicle repairs.

A car’s exhaust system is made up of several parts that channel gases from the engine’s cylinders back into the atmosphere. The exhaust silencer is the final section, and its job is to reduce the amount of noise created by the engine gases being forced through the exhaust pipe.
Your exhaust silencer’s lifespan is dependent on a range of outside factors—the main ones being the weather and driving conditions. Modern exhausts made from chrome or stainless steel are designed to last for the life of the car, whereas a high-quality non-stainless steel exhaust should last for around 5 years.
A hole in your exhaust will only fail an MOT if it is responsible for a major leak or it causes the car to fail its emissions test.
Because of their location, being mounted underneath the car, **exhaust pipes **are highly prone to damage, corrosion and wear. The weather plays a significant part in the corrosion and deterioration of the different exhaust pipe sections; rust being a major player in the appearance of holes throughout the system.
Damage to exhausts can be caused by raised road elements or extrusions from the road, such as curbs or speed bumps. Damage can also occur by driving too fast over the brow of a hill or through a dip where the suspension might bottom out and cause contact between the underside of the vehicle and the road surface.
If your exhaust makes more noise or is louder than normal, your exhaust silencer is probably damaged or improperly attached. A common sound of ‘blowing out’ is where holes have developed in the silencer.
If you can see holes developing in your exhaust, through damage or deterioration, it’s time to get a new exhaust silencer.
A damaged exhaust pipe can affect your vehicle’s performance, and in some circumstances develop a vibration that wouldn’t occur under normal operation.
The exhaust is responsible for vehicle emissions, so if you fail a test, on inspection or at MOT, then you need to replace the malfunctioning component immediately.
